“Our gratefulness is endless” — Fuller Center helps Armenian family start anew after war
AGHNJADZOR VILLAGE, Armenia — The Fuller Center of Armenia helped 87 families have simple, decent places to live in 2021 — including 15 families who were displaced from the war-torn area of Artsakh. Aysor.am has a new featured article on one of those families, the Harutyunyans.
It was 25 years ago that they were several years into the process of building their dream home in Aghnjadzor, but hardship forced them to leave the project half-built, and they relocated to the Kashatagh community of Artsakh. When the Nagorno-Karabakh war broke out in 2020, Mkrtich Harutyunyan and his two eldest sons went to the front lines, while the women and children of the family went to a safe location — the old, half-built home in Aghnjadzor.
Thanks to the efforts of The Fuller Center and financial supporter Viva-MTS, the family is not only safe once again, but they have seen their dream home completed.
“We’d lost everything created through hard work of many years and had to start everything anew,” Mkrtich said. “Today there are eight of us in this house — three families, my wife and I, my son with his family, and my daughter with her family. Now, it seems, we are ready for a new start. Our gratefulness is endless.”
