SOAR - Buenos Aires Chapter

Buenos Aires joined the SOAR family in November 2016. A majority of Armenians arriving to Argentina in the 1920s originated from Cilicia of the Ottoman Empire, leaving their homeland because of the Armenian genocide. The Armenian community of Argentina has maintained its identity because of the church, school and the family structure. Currently, the Armenian community of Argentina has nine Armenian churches. Between 70,000 and 135,000 ethnic Armenians live in Argentina, the largest Armenian population in Latin America and one of the largest in the world.
