Elton and David Furnish are spending some time in Armenia.
They are in Yerevan, the capital, on behalf of a charity mission initiated by the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
Elton says that Armenian President Armen Sarkissian and Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan have started making great transitions in the country, and that he is happy to be a part of the “tsunami” of planned changes.
Speaking to reporters in the Yerevan head office of Yerevan My Love Benevolent Foundation, a charity project founded by the president 8 years ago, Sir Elton emphasised that everything cannot be changed at once, and reforms should be done step by step.
Elton and David visited the Hayk and Elza Titizian Children’s Rehabilitation Center in Yerevan with the Armenian president, First Lady Nune, and Starkey founder and CEO William Austin.
The design and construction of the rehabilitation center was implemented by the Yerevan My Love Foundation.
100 hearing aids were donated to children today as part of the Starkey Hearing Foundation's initiative.
