Individual donors have made a big difference in the lives of Adopt-a-Village beneficiaries in Armenia. To date, more than 125 villages and schools have been adopted by donors who have contributed to the success of the program. You will receive a report about your village with photographs and letters from the children and families you sponsor.
The Armenian EyeCare Project’s Tribute and Memorial Program is a beautiful and meaningful way to honor a significant person in your life. Memorial and tribute gifts help make this possible. These gifts of love help pay for direct patient care – medical treatment, surgery, medications and eyeglasses. Give us a call about our naming opportunities.

Khachigian’s Children’s Program
When the EyeCare Project recognized the need to develop a program to combat Retinopathy of Prematurity, a dreadful but preventable eye disease, that causes rapid and irreversible blindness in premature infants, Luther Khachigian — 2014 Gala Honoree — immediately came forward. Not once, not twice, but three times — in addition to his extraordinarily generous contributions — Mr. Khachigian purchased a RetCam, a piece of equipment required to diagnose and treat this horrific disease blinding Armenia’s premature infants.

Eye Safety In Sports
Lots of people – at all ages – are injured while playing sports – but getting hurt doesn’t have to happen. A few sports injury prevention steps can help to keep everyone in the game. All eye protection should fit securely and have cushions above your eyebrows and over your nose. Face masks or polycarbonate guards or shields that attach to a helmet are worn in sports such as football, ice hockey, and softball and baseball when batting. Goggles are often worn for soccer, basketball, racquet sports, snowboarding, street hockey, and baseball and softball when fielding. If you wear glasses, you’ll probably need prescription polycarbonate goggles — don’t just wear your regular glasses when you’re on the court or field.
Ucom Sponsors Eye Exams
Thanks to support from Ucom, a telecommunications company in Armenia, more than 12,000 Armenians throughout the country will receive free eye exams, administered by the EyeCare Project, in 2016. Ucom will sponsor the exams, which will serve approximately 8,000 adults and 4,000 children and include those living in the Ararat, Vayots Dzor, Syunik and Armavir regions.
Bequests and Wills
Remembering the EyeCare Project in your will contributes to the Project’s long term financial strength, ensuring access to eye care for the people in Armenia. It is also the easiest major gift you can make. It’s simple, flexible and revocable if your plans or circumstances change. It costs you nothing during your lifetime, preserves your savings and cash flow, and allows you to be far more generous than you ever thought possible.
