Nerkin Karmir Aghpyur, Armenia-The Medical Center in the village of
Nerkin Karmir Aghpyur, Tavush Region, was successfully renovated
through The Paros Foundation. This project, one of the Paros
Foundation’s 100 for 100 Projects for Prosperity, was implemented
through the generous sponsorship of Jean-Marie & Lori Atamian from New
York. The Paros Foundation underwrote all administrative expenses
allowing their contribution to be spent 100% on the project.

The Medical Center, which is located within sniper range of the Azeri
border, had a leaky roof, poor windows and doors and no heating
system. The Center also was short on needed medical and laboratory
equipment. While the Center functioned despite these shortcomings, it
was difficult for them to meet their critical mission.

“This Medical Center provides daily medical care, vaccinations and
evaluations for the 3,200 residents of this and the two neighboring
villages.” Said Peter Abajian, Executive Director of the Paros
Foundation, “Both the proximity to the border and the fact that this
region is so isolated, makes this Medical Center’s success that much
more important.”

The Center’s building, which was hit by enemy fire as recent as four
months ago, was fitted with a new roof, new windows and doors and a
new heating system. Interior cosmetic improvements completed the
renovation. Needed equipment was also provided to the Center. When
possible, both local materials and labor were used to help stimulate
the villages’ economy.

“We are quite pleased with the outcome of this project. We are able
to have a positive impact on the lives of thousands of people, and we
were able to do it together as a family.” Said Jean-Marie Atamian
during the Atamian family’s visit on opening day. “On behalf of our
family, I would like to recognize The Paros Foundation and their team
for the terrific work they did to complete this project. I look
forward to continuing our relationship into the future.”

A commemorative plaque now installed at the medical center reads:

In Memory of Bedros and Vartanoush Atamian from Adiaman, Tigranakert
Province.

Bedros fought to defend our villagers and save our refugees so that
Armenians could live freely on their lands. His heroism inspires all
of us.

partnered with six organizations in Armenia (The Paros Chamber Choir (
) [], Unison NGO (
[]), Vanadzor Arts School (
[]), Manana Youth Center (

projects manage their growth and attract more financial, human, and
physical resources to their respective causes.

To honor the centennial of the Armenian Genocide, The Paros Foundation

Armenia and her people. 100 pre-screened, projects in the areas of
development, education, cultural and humanitarian will be implemented
