We are proud to report that, despite the challenges of 2020, the Armenian EyeCare Project was able to open our fifth Regional Eye Center in Armenia last fall! Located in the city of Yeghegnadzor in the Vayots Dzor province, the Vahakn Aglamishian AECP Regional Eye Center was opened in October 2020 and brings eye care to the thousands of Armenians living in the region.
Our Regional Eye Center in Gyumri is up and running! In late September, during our Fall Medical Mission to Armenia, the EyeCare Project unveiled our newest eye center, the John Ohannes Khachigian AECP Regional Eye Center, in Gyumri.
When you ask Berge Kayaian why he supports the AECP his answer is simple: he understands there is a solution to eye disease and he knows that he can help. Most recently, Kayaian has sponsored the operating room of our Regional Eye Center in Kapan and has dedicated it to his late mother.
One major accomplishment during the AECP’s 25th Anniversary Medical Mission and Trip to Armenia was the grand opening of our third Regional Eye Center in Armenia and the first-ever eye clinic in the southernmost province of Armenia.
A state-of-the-art Regional Eye Center will open its doors in the second-largest city in Armenia this fall. The Armenian EyeCare Project will unveil our fourth Regional Eye Center in Armenia and celebrate the Grand Opening of the John Ohannes Khachigian AECP Regional Eye Center in Gyumri during our 2018 Medical Mission to Armenia in September.
“I have a policy,” said Luther J. Khachigian. “The more you give, the more you get.” That has been the 81-year-old’s mantra for as long as he can remember — and it’s more applicable now than ever. Khachigian, a longtime supporter of the AECP, has underwritten our fourth Regional Eye Center!
Perhaps the most exciting achievement from our most recent Medical Mission to Armenia was the grand opening of our second Regional Eye Center in Armenia — and the first-ever eye clinic in the Lori province — the John and Hasmik Mgrdichian AECP Regional Eye Center in Spitak, Lori.
We’re pleased to announce the launch of our 25th Anniversary and look forward to celebrating the milestone with our friends and supporters!
We are “Kicking Off” our third Regional Eye Center — in Kapan, Syunik — with a crowdfunding campaign! Our goal is to raise $10,000 so we can purchase 11 much-needed pieces of equipment for the clinic.
