A wonderful GB volunteer team, led by Nicole Atesian Simmons did terrific work helping an Armenian family to sooner feel the happiness of a decent home! It is always encouraging, when the Global Builders volunteer team member becomes a team leader and returns with new enthusiasm and willingness to support; it is already the fourth team, led by Nicole Atesian Simmons.
This year, the team helped the Saribekyans from Gyulagarak village of Lori region. Many years the family has lived in one of the villager’s house who lent them the house temporarily.
In 2017, the family started to build their own house. Slavik is good at construction work, and he has done most of the construction work on his own. The family is engaged in farming and cattle breeding; however, their income was not enough to complete the construction.
The family is being assisted by the generous donation of Howard and Catherine Atesian.
For the team, it was an opportunity not only to help the family and discover Armenia, but also have fun and create bonds.
