Med Aid Armenia 2015


Health care for residents living in Armenia’s remote and/or poverty stricken areas is very hard to find and difficult to afford. Residents in these communities have a high rate of health issues that could otherwise be prevented or cured if they had access to simple medical care. In order to help remedy this unfortunate situation, The Paros Foundation has launched Med Aid Armenia.

Med Aid Armenia is made up of medical professionals (practicing or in school) from the United States who are volunteering their time and skills in order to provide residents in these communities with basic medical care. The group of volunteer medical professionals will be working with Armenian’s Health Ministry as well as several doctors from Armenia. The first of these missions will launch this summer starting July 6, 2015 –July 10, 2015. As a first step our target population will receive basic check-ups and screenings. Specifically this summer, Med Aid Armenia will provide basic eye care to children from the village of Hatsik in the Armavir region of Armenia. Basic care will include eye exams and screenings. Following screenings, patients will be provided with referrals for continuing care if needed.

Sponsorship of this project will help raise the necessary funds needed to obtain basic equipment and supplies. In-kind donations of any of these items are also welcomed.

Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

The Need
Health care for residents living in Armenia’s remote and/or poverty stricken areas is very hard to find and almost impossible to afford. This can cause a lifetime of medical issues, which can be otherwise prevented. Residents living in these areas are in need of basic medical aid in order to prevent serious health issues in the future.
Short Term Impact
Approximately 200 children from the village of Hatsik will receive basic eye exams and screenings during the week of July 6, 2015 –July 10, 2015.
Long Term Impact
Residents of remote and poverty stricken villages will have a decreased occurrence of health issues in the future. As this program expands, repeat visits will create more access to health care and in turn increase the overall health and well being of this population.
Sponsors Benefits
Your donation to sponsor the Med Aid Armenia will be recognized on The Paros Foundation website and in all appropriate press related to this important project.
