Children are examined free of charge, all expenses related to the arrival and stay of the experts from Armenia are covered by the "International Found Apsny".

The main goal of such charitable actions is to render support to low income families helping them bring up healthy children.

"First and foremost, we want our children to be able to receive qualified medical care here, at home, so our medical workers would have an opportunity to share their experience and learn from foreign experts. "Now we receive doctors from Armenia, and in the future we plan to involve doctors from Europe" - said Sener Gogua.

Doctors from Armenia are highly qualified specialists working in the best children's medical centers in the country.
