Pashinyan sends condolence letter on the death of Louise Manoogian Simone
YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 20, ARMENPRESS. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan sent a condolence letter to the family of Louise Manoogian Simone on the occasion of her demise. As ARMENPRESS was informed from the Office of the Prime Minister of Armenia, the condolence letter runs as follows,
“It was with deep grief that I learned about the death of Louise Manoogian Simone, a great philanthropist of Armenian origin and outstanding national figure. Her death is really a great loss for our entire people to whom she served with endless devotion and great responsibility.
The contribution of Louise Manoogian Simone to the mission of preservation of the Armenian identity, development of independent Armenia and empowerment of the Armenian Apostolic Church is invaluable. Living far away from the Motherland, she was closely tied with Armenia, showing caring attitude toward her compatriots and serving as an example and inspiration for many other philanthropists.
Assuming the high post of the Armenian General Benevolent Union in a decisive period for Armenia, she spared no efforts for the elimination of the consequences of Spitak earthquake and the Artsakh war. Thanks to her efforts numerous educational, cultural, and charity projects came into life in Armenia and communities with large Armenian population in the Diaspora.
With her patriotic and productive activities Louise Manoogian Simone has left a lasting trace in the modern history of the Armenian people and Armenia.
I offer my deep condolences and solidarity to all the relatives of and friends of Louise Manoogian Simone and our entire people on the occasion of this bereavement”.
