Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization (Aleppo-NGO) has been struggling since September 25, 2019, to raise the money needed for Krikor Astabanian’s heart surgery. Thanks to all donors we have collected 4,400,000 AMD – the amount necessary for the operation. We extend our sincere gratitude to all of you for your generous donations toward making our goal a reality.
On behalf of Aleppo-NGO and Krikor’s family we would like to express our special gratitude to Nork Marash Medical Center and Dr. Hovaguimian for their generous contribution. Re-examinations at Nork Marash Medical Center determined that Krikor will require a heart rate monitor implant following the surgery. At Nork Marash Medical Center the cost of the surgery is usually 4,750,000 AMD while the cost of the implant is 1, 700, 000 AMD, so total of 6, 450, 000 AMD (approx. $13,600), but the Medical Center decided to give a discount of 1,550,000 AMD on the surgery and an additional 500,000 AMD discount for the heart rate monitor implant. With all the discounts, the total cost of the surgery will cost 4,400,000 AMD (approx. $9,270).
Special thanks to Armenia Artsakh Fund, particularly Harut Sassounian, President of the United Armenian Fund and Nouritza Abujamra, Program Director at Armenia Artsakh Fund, for not being indifferent to the medical condition of Krikor Astabanian and the implemented efforts for finding fast solutions to the issue.
We express our deepest gratitude to the Armenian General Benevolent Union (ABGU) and Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA) as well for their considerable support. AGBU and AMAA together have provided 1,000,000 AMD (approx. $2110). The contributions of these organizations to our fundraising helped us get closer to the surgery.
