Armenian Doctors of France provide ophthalmologic services to children in Armenia with ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE BANK assistance

YEREVAN, August 30. /ARKA/. Members of the Union of French-Armenian Doctors visit Armenia twice a year, including one visit in May, when they share their experience with rural schools’ doctors to present methods of ophthalmological examination of children, the press office of ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE BANK reported on Tuesday.

During their second visit, which comes in August, Armenian doctors of France bring optical lenses and ophthalmologic devices to Armenia and test children’s eyesight, gifting them glasses, if necessary.
Members of the union toured Syunik province’s villages and the city of Sisian this year.
Levon Artinian, the president of the union, who came with the group of doctors to Armenia, said this is the 13th year they travel to Armenia and contribute to child health.

“We have decided to implement this program in villages, since there is a high demand for equipment and doctors,” he said. “And now doctors came with their equipment, spending days from our leaves.”
Artinian said that this year a group of eight doctors came to Armenia with assistance from ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE BANK.

“We thought there are people in Armenia who would provide assistance to us, and we turned to our old friend ACBA, with whom we have been working over 20 years and who helped us without long thinking in implementation of the project,” he said.

The Armenian doctors of France tested 500 children’s eyesight this year.

ACBA was established in 1996 as part of EU’s TACIS program. As a result of a long-term and mutually beneficial cooperation between ACBA Bank and the French Credit Agricole the latter became the biggest shareholder of ACBA in 2006, September. ACBA was restructured, becoming a closed joint stock company and was renamed ACBA CREDIT AGRICOLE BANK. ----0---
