Mobile Eye Care Project

Start A Supporter Campaign

RAISED: $51,480.00

GOAL: $48,000.00

Total budget - $215,000

 

 

SOAR Mobile Eye Care Project will provide traveling vision care for children housed in Armenia's residential childcare institutions (orphanages and special boarding schools), for children and families who receive services through specialized day centers in Gyumri, Vanadzor, and Yerevan, and to children and adults in remote villages across Armenia. SOAR is hoping to impact over 2,000 children and adults annually, targeting 40-50 patients per week. 

SOAR’s traveling clinic will refer more serious cases to Yerevan, where consultant Dr. Artashes Zilfyan has offered to conduct all subsequent examinations and treatment free of charge. Transportation to Yerevan for all follow-up appointments will be provided by SOAR. Our mobile eye care clinic thus has the ability to not only remedy basic vision problems onsite, but address serious eye care issues at no additional cost or inconvenience to thousands of patients across Armenia!

The Mobile Eye Care Project campaign will continue through the end of July.  While donations at all levels will be gratefully accepted, our hope is to identify 10 benefactors who can contribute $5,000 each to become our Partners in this project!

On behalf of SOAR and the men, women, and children across Armenia who will benefit from our traveling eye care clinic, thank you!

Van purchased

Published Tue, Jul 16, 19. Written by Susan Burdette.

The van should arrive to Armenia mid-August, after which it will be customized for use. In the interim, our consulting ophthalmologist in Armenia, Dr. Artashes Zilfyan, will begin ordering the necessary equipment.  Our hope is that we will begin formal operations by November, servicing all orphaned and otherwise institutionalized children in Armenia and the poorest villages across Armenia.
