Narine Saghatelyan's family
The Saghatelyan’s family consists of four members; housewife Narine Saghatelyan, her husband, and two young children, ages seven and three.
The family brought this house two years ago, but they were not able to move in due to the poor condition of the home. It’s great to announce, that in 20 days, the family will finally move into their home. The revocation was done by Mr. Saghatelyan, who usually sends 9 months out of a year in Russia as a migrate worker. His year, he will stay in Armenia to finish his home and will return to work next year with a comfort that his family will be living in a safer environment. Mrs. Saghatelyan is a stay at home mother, who graze her cattle, sheep, and chickens when her children are at school.
“Although there’s a lot that needs to be done, I have faith we will finish before the New Year.” In the Armenian culture, New Year is the most celebrated holiday and is an one-week festivity that often extends into two weeks. Families and friends visit each other, and share stories and toasts over an endless New Year meal.
