Project Name Medical Center in Kurtan
Full Description

Kurtan is an isolated village with 1,825 residents in the Stepanavan area of Armenia's Lori Region. The facility is housed rent free in a building, which also houses the village administration.

The Medical Center consists of four rooms (only two of which are currently able to be used) totaling approximately 770 square feet. The Center needs a new roof over its portion of the building, new windows and doors, a bathroom and a heating system.

Any partial funds received for this project will be first used to replace the damaged roof. Then funds will be allocated to the remainder of the renovation of the space. The Paros Foundation team will work with the village administration to ensure that they support the project in as many ways as possible including donated materials, free labor and/or support services.

It is anticipated that the repairs to the medical center will take approximately 3 months depending on weather conditions.

Need Quality medical care is difficult to provide in Armenia's rural areas without proper facilities. Residents have no choice but to depend on these regional medical centers for their family's health care needs. The roof, doors, windows, bathroom and heating system are items that are fundamentally needed to allow this center to operate and serve this isolated community effectively.

Short Term Impact The renovation of the Medical Center will immediately better facilitate the health needs of the residents of Kurtan. Materials will be purchased locally when possible, thus providing a boost to the local economy. Two to three local workers will be hired during the renovation process and thus provide these residents short-term employment.
Long Term Impact Citizens must have access to adequate, clean medical facilities especially for children. This renovation will help meet the needs of approximately 3,000 rural patients annually.
Sponsor Benefit All sponsors will be recognized with a plaque installed in the newly renovated areas. In addition, donors will be recognized on all relevant press regarding this project and on the Paros 100 website. Visits to the Clinic will be arranged for sponsors visiting Armenia.
