Besides multistory living buildings subject to demolition and dilapidated dormitories of former factories there are also dozens buildings of former schools and libraries, which have not been rebuilt or recovered either since Spitak earthquake of 1988.
In these buildings homeless families are still living, some of which on previous years were even allowed to privatize their occupied territories. However, many families living in these damaged buildings do not have earthquake homeless status that is they are not subjected to reimbursement by the state for housing; moreover they do not have the means and possibilities to legitimize and strengthen their apartments.
As a result for many years they continue living in unsafe, damaged buildings without any kind of communal facilities.
One of them id Heghine Eghoyan who does not have homeless status and is a single mother with 6 children.
Our staff visited Heghine's family to give her the funds received during last month's charity telethon held in Los Angeles.
