Maryland ASC donates 1 ton of supplies to Armenia for coronavirus

The Chevy Chase (Md.) Surgery Center and Armenia Fund USA are sending supplies to Armenia to assist in the country's response to COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, according to Asbarez.

The surgery center worked with the high commissioner for diaspora affairs of Armenia and the Ministry of Health to collect 1 ton of supplies. The supplies were loaded onto an aircraft in Los Angeles and sent to Armenia and Artsakh.

"Armenia Fund USA, Chevy Chase Surgery Center, and the ARS acted as a rapid reaction force in helping Armenia and Artsakh with much-needed supplies, in light of the uncertainties with this global crisis. Whether in Los Angeles or in any part of the globe, we stand ready to help Armenia and Artsakh. I would like to personally commend the quick, professional response of the Ministry of Health of Armenia," said Raffi Sarkissian, Chevy Chase Surgery Center administrator.

The Ani & Narod Memorial Foundation contributed financially to the donation.
