Family Rescue Fund is a longtime supporter of the Armenia Hearing Aid Project (AHAP). This project has the mission to assist socially disadvantaged people with hearing problems in the homeland. Thanks to the activities of this foundation, about 4800 people from Armenia and Artsakh got to know the world anew, restoring the ability to hear. This has become possible by the Kavoukjian family, the founders of AHAP.
The AHAP contacted the Starkey Foundation, one of the largest hearing aid manufacturers in the world, introducing them to the problems in Armenia. As a result, since 2017, AHAP together with Starkey took specialists and technicians to Armenia who set up clinics in the country, provided training for local doctors, and delivered free hearing aids to those in the community that needed the help the most.
This year, Armenia Hearing Aid Project will help Armenian soldiers who lost their hearing during the Artsakh war, said AHAP’s founder Heidi Kavoukjian in her speech at the fund-raising event held on April 22nd.
FRF board members joined AHAP in their event and made a generous donation to help provide digital hearing aids to the many wounded, hearing-impaired national war heroes.
