YEREVAN, March 6. / ARKA /. Ameriabank said it has raised over 5 million drams as part of a special offer called "Pay by card, give life", conducted from November 1, 2012 to January 31, 2013. The special offer was designed to raise money for treatment of ill children, who are in critical condition.
The raised money was transferred to three ill children registered with Give Life Foundation. They are Nelli Petrosian, Gor Kzaryan and Suren Poghosyan who are in critical condition and in need of surgery abroad.
"Ameriabank presented iPhones to its most active five cardholders on March 5 as an appreciation of their participation in the initiative," the bank said in a statement.
