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.
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.
