Stone built house instead of a metal container for the family from Koti village

The Bejanyan family living in Koti village of Tavush region have lived in a metal container for three decades feeling the real danger coming from the enemy firings during that period. The family father, Babken, has spent most of his life inside the 27-square-meter metal walls. His wife Nune, has overcome the difficulty of frosty winters, the summer heat, the horror of the enemy’s shootings and every time lived the happiness of being miraculously survived. Their daughter, Gohar, is the one who has survived miraculously; the particle found in the crib as a result of the enemy firings could have been irreversible for the newborn. Now she is a mother of a five-year-old son.

Thanks to the housing program implemented by VivaCell-MTS and Fuller Center for Housing Armenia, the family’s life has totally changed; the Bejanayans now have a stone-built, two-storey house.

”This is the happiest year of my life. Having moved to a light and large house is so unusual that I am confused. My sons have their own bedroom, we have ours. Now the firings are not so terrible; the stone walls are stronger, and I have a full sense of safety.
I have a great dream–I want my sons to get married in the new house,” said the family mother Nune Bejanyan.
