ACBA-Credit Agricole Bank issued the following announcement on Sept. 6.
The Union of French-Armenian Doctors (UMAF) with the support of ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE BANK has implemented a charity, health program called "Glasses for Armenia" in Tavush region. For the fourth year in a row, with the support of the bank, UMAF doctors bring with them a large number of optical lenses, laboratory and ophthalmic equipment, inspecting children 's eyes on the spot and making necessary glasses for them when needed. About 600 children were screened in Tavush this year.
“Sight is a very important thing for children because when a child does not see well, he cannot follow his lessons well. You have to look good to learn well. From other cities we bring children by bus. We arrange for the children to come and have no road problems. We thank our partner ACBA-Credit Agricole Bank ․ For several years now, the bank has provided most of the money needed for the program. With these funds we organize the transportation of necessary equipment from France to Armenia and carry out other organizational activities, ”said Petros Ohanyan, a member of the French Medical Union, co-founder of the program.
The cooperation between ACBA-Credit Agricole Bank and UMAF started in 2016, within the framework of which every year French-Armenian doctors, with the support of the Bank, implement an ophthalmological program for children in different regions of Armenia.
