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.
Launched in 2016, our new partnership with Ucom is an effort to continue a cooperation that was originally started by telecommunications company Orange Armenia and its charitable sub-group, Orange Foundation, in 2011. Ucom bought Orange Armenia in 2015 and has decided to continue its charitable contributions.
“The mission of our company is to help our compatriots, to assist the formation of a sustainable and safe community, to create development opportunities and to educate a new, healthy and well-developed generation,” Ucom Director Hayk Yesayan said. “This is one of those unique projects that has had only a positive impact and that changes the lives of people fundamentally.”
