Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan Helping Build a Home with Fuller Center for Housing Armenia

On June 30, 2018 the Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan volunteer staff members, led by Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan General Manager Catalina Susan, joined Fuller Center for Housing Armenia team to build a home for the Khachatryan family from Qaghsi Village in the Kotayk Region.

It is already the 12th year that Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan partners with Fuller Center for Housing Armenia team with the aim of eliminating substandard housing in Armenia and helping more and more families in need of decent housing. This year, the Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan team joined the Khachatryans to help with concreting work.

“Marriott’s Spirit to serve makes our culture more vibrant, our business stronger and the world a better place. Investing in the communities where we do business is at the core of Marriott’s Spirit To Serve Our Communities corporate social responsibility strategy. Our commitment to society blends financial contributions with in-kind giving of products and services, and the volunteer service of our associates around the world. Now the time has come to put our actions to another Spirit to Serve our communities event together with Fuller Center for Housing Armenia‘’, said Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan General Manager  Ms. Catalina Susan

The Khachatryans are a family of eleven. Rustam and his wife, Hripsik, together with their three children, live with Rustam’s parents and his brother’s family, eleven people in a four-room house. It is already nine years, Rustam has started building a house for his family, but could raise only the walls and do the ceiling.

Rustam still can’t imagine that very soon his family will have a decent home and his children will be raised in a house with all necessary housing conditions.

”For many years I have been trying to finish the house construction putting stone on the stone but lack of financial mean didn’t allow to finish the construction sooner. I am so thankful to FCHA and the volunteers who came and worked tirelessly with us. Their support is invaluable. My entire family is very grateful for such a generous support,” shared Rustam.

“We have a solid partnership with Armenia Marriott Hotel Yerevan which has a history of 12 years… Hope our partnership will continue many more years with the great mission of helping more and more Armenian families in housing need,” said the Fuller Center for Housing Armenia President Ashot Yeghiazaryan.
