Today VivaCell-MTS and Armenian Red Cross Society (ARCS) joined hands
to address humanitarian challenges facing the state and society. The
two Organizations signed a Memorandum of Understanding for this
purpose during a press conference at the Headquarters of the Armenian
Red Cross Society.

Because we care! A notion that gathered the efforts of two of
the biggest organizations in Armenia: The Red Cross ARCS and
VivaCell-MTS. Both having the best interest of the support of
vulnerable groups at heart, joined hands for the society’s welfare.

"Today VivaCell-MTS and Armenian Red Cross Society have come together
to join their efforts to address the needs of the most vulnerable
population and to provide them with reachable and effective
support. Join us, don’t stay indifferent to the pain of others",
mentioned in the speech the leader of the Armenian Red Cross Society.

The long term cooperation between the ARCS and VivaCell-MTS will
start with a very vital cause, the fight against the HIV virus, the
millennium’s merciless evil. Realizing the importance of awareness in
prevention of the virus, the two organizations come together to raise
population’s awareness on prevention of HIV/AIDS. The activities will
be multi-staged and will involve a wide range of educational events:
spread of information materials, public events, etc. Within the
framework of the activities, all kind of print materials with brief
information on HIV/AIDS and alarming messages and guidance tips and
advises will be available to all the Armenian society to benefit from.

"We owe our society the right to know! With knowledge and awareness
we can better prevent and fight any disease. Awareness and prevention
are each and every one’s responsibility and tolerance is required
when dealing with HIV cases. Because we care we are here today,
what about you?" asked VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
