85,000 EUR Required To Save Life Of Boy Sick With Leukaemia: January


YEREVAN, DECEMBER 22. ARMINFO. To save the life of a 16-year-old
citizen of Armenia Arshak Haroutiunyan, 85,000 EUR are required for
operation on marrow transplantation at Benjamin Franklin Hospital in
Berlin (Germany).

Speaking at a press-conference, Wednesday, a relative of the boy
Ninnel Vardanyan stated that the deadline for operation is Jan 5,
2005. The necessary sum must be collected by this date. The relatives
and friends of Arshak have managed to collect only 1 mln 800,000 AMD
(3,600 USD). His parents sell their real estate, which is estimated at
15,000 USD. Ninnel Vardanyan noted that the head of a number of medical
establishments of Yerevan, Artyom Kushyan, promised a considerable
financial assistance, but has not helped by anything in practice.
The First Lady of Armenia, Bella Kocharyan, who is President of the
National Marrow Register, could not render financial assistance,
but she promised to negotiate with the German party for reduction
of the sum. Ninnel Vardanyan noted that numerous calls by Mass Media
for assistance proved to be in vain.

Informed of Arshak’s disease, the country’s Health Ministry, first
of all, “took an interested in how he had occurred in Germany.” No
real assistance is rendered to the boy, referring to financial
difficulties and lack of ties with the Association of Medics of Berlin,
she stated. For conclusion, Ninnel Vardanyan noted that a donor for
Arshak has already been found in Armenia, but his life is hanged by
a thread which may break on January 5, 2005. All those who want to
help the boy, can transfer money to the accounts with ARMSAVINGSBANK
in AMD – 160485273918, in USD – 160482127398 and in EUR – 160482227396.
