Medical Center in Agarak
Agarak is an isolated village with 1,420 residents in the Stepanavan area of Armenia’s Lori Region. The facility is housed in a one-story building that was renovated after the 1988 Spitak Earthquake. (Last renovation is 2006)
The Medical Center consists of five rooms totaling approximately 1320 square feet. This regional medical center serves the needs of both the rural community of Agarak, along with the neighboring communities of Hovnanadzor, Yaghdan and Koghes. The Center needs new windows and doors, repairs to the existing flooring and a freezer for vaccines.
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.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
