The whole amount raised at the auction and redoubled by Ameria Group will be spent on treatment of kids with cancer diseases, hematological diseases and idiopathic arthritis. In particular, the amount will be transferred to the Nvirir Kyanq Foundation, Let's Help Armenian Children Foundation, Children Without Pain Foundation, and Echo NGO. All individuals and legal entities wishing to take part in this project can transfer their funds to the account 1570036910764400 in Ameriabank.
