Another family builds a stone house with support of Viva-MTS

In the framework of the joint housing program of Viva-MTS and Fuller Center for Housing Armenia, the young Galstyan family in Torfavan village (Gegharkunik marz) has completed the construction of the stone house.

Viva-MTS has stated that although the construction period of the house was not very successful, the support of partner organizations and the persistent efforts of the homeowners gave the desired result: the Galstyans now own a spacious stone house filled with sunlight.

“A mentally and spiritually rich person has one’s own formula of overcoming problems – patiently, strong in his faith and willfully. Believe it, you pass over your willfulness to your children and serve them as a role model. They see examples of how home shall be built and how homeland shall be cherished, and these examples speak louder than words. The hardest days are behind. Set new goals and strive for them with the same commitment,” Viva-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian said during the video call.

“The situations we saw during the first visit and now are incomparable. There were walls made of soil; the entire family gathered in one room. Now the picture is completely different. There is nothing left of the old damp and earthen room. Now the family lives in a spacious and bright house with all necessities. Despite that the pandemic had a significant impact on the progress of our programs, in general, we succeeded. We all realized that we had to get out of the situation with honor. Together, we succeeded,” said Ashot Yeghiazaryan, President of the Fuller Center for Housing Armenia.

The partners implementing the housing program for over ten years, Viva-MTS and the Fuller Center for Housing Armenia are recording desirable results in different regions of the country. This year, the partners plan to make the dream of a home into a reality for 84 families. The list of beneficiaries includes families that, due to circumstances, have to start the difficult task of building a house for the third time.
