HSBC Armenia to donate computers to students in vulnerable communities

YEREVAN, May 13. /ARKA/. "HSBC Bank Armenia" CJSC (HSBC Armenia) said today it will donate 150 sets of computer workstations to students in socially vulnerable communities in Armenia to support their remote learning needs amidst COVID-19 and beyond. The workstations will be given to HSBC Armenia's charity partner Jinishian Memorial Foundation, which will help identify and select the final beneficiaries and distribute the workstations to them.

The donation has been made possible by an internal fundraising campaign by HSBC Armenia employees, who wanted to help alleviate the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable students’ education.

“In this challenging period, HSBC Armenia’s employees have displayed heartfelt solidarity and collective social responsibility by enabling vulnerable communities in the country access to remote learning. Many students whose education was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic will now be able to resume their studies and will continue making use of the workstations after the pandemic has subsided,” said Irina Seylanyan, HSBC Armenia CEO. 

The donation is made on top of an AMD15 million donation to the Armenian Red Cross Society (ARCS) to support the needs of vulnerable communities amidst the pandemic, announced by HSBC Armenia earlier this month
