    AROUND 4,200 PEOPLE TO BENEFIT FROM FREE EYE CARE PROGRAM OF THE ARMENIAN EYECARE PROJECT AND ORANGE FOUNDATION IN SHIRAK REGION

    Free eye screening and treatment program of the Armenian Eyecare
    Project (AECP) and Orange Foundation has launched. The program will
    be implemented in 2 stages - eye screening and treatment. In the
    first stage the AECP medical staff will examine all those who want
    to be examined just on the spot. The works of the second stage will
    be carried out on the Mobile Eye Hospital, parked in the center of
    the given region, where all preliminarily examined patients will pass
    double screening and laser interference will be performed. All socially
    disadvantaged residents of the region will undergo free eye surgery,
    if necessary. Such people will be also provided with glasses for free.

    In the period of September-October the AECP medical staff will visit
    Ani, Artik, Akhuryan, Amasia and Ashotsk districts. The Mobile Eye
    Hospital will stop in Maralik, Artik and Akhuryan.

    The children from 9 schools of the region will be screened together
    with adults. They will also participate in comprehensive courses on
    eye care.

    Today the representatives of the Orange Foundation and Armenian Eyecare
    Project were present in eye screening processes in Isahakyan village.

    "This is already the 10th region visited together with the Armenian
    Eyecare Project. Before that the AECP medical staff has been to Lori
    region, where around 4,000 people have benefited from free eye care
    services. Thanks to the works carried out jointly with the Armenian
    Eyecare Project, we were able to help tens of thousands of people.

    People with visual impairments have communication difficulties,
    our vocation, as a telecommunication company, is to facilitate
    communication between people. We are happy to bring real changes
    into the life of many people and families thanks to this program,"
    said Nazareth Seferian, the General Secretary of the Orange Foundation.

    "We are planning to examine around 3,000 adults and 1,200 children
    in Shirak region. We anticipate performing around 300 surgeries and
    providing 1,200 glasses," said AECP Country Director Nune Yeghiazaryan.
