Heriknaz Markosyan's family lives in an attic of a many-storeyed residential building in Armenia's Gyumri city. The family did not receive an apartment as Heriknaz's mother was in prison during the registration of homeless families in 2008. Heriknaz was unable to submit the full package of documents required by the Mayor's Office for the registration.
The family is temporarily living in the attic which lacks public utility facilities.
