Dr. Garen Koloyan, HOPE International alumnus and pediatric orthopedic surgeon in Armenia

Armenian Program Flourishes Long After HOPE

Dr. Garen Koloyan, who accompanied the 37 children needing prostheses to the United States on the Project HOPE airlift following the December 1988 earthquake in Armenia, just completed a fundraising trip to Chicago to further enhance the pediatric orthopedic and rehabilitation program initiated by Project HOPE in 1989.  Since HOPE's departure from Armenia in 1995, Dr. Koloyan has led the HOPE-trained team using the HOPE model of visiting professionals (now from Europe) and has built the reputation of the program as evidenced by the treatment of children from Russia, Ukraine, and Georgia.  During his visit, Dr. Koloyan outlined his team's readiness to reach out to neighboring countries to enhance the standards of pediatric orthopedics and rehabilitation in the region.
