Tuff Armenia

Tuff Armenia is halfway through a research project about housing conditions of earthquake survivors in a domik district of Gyumri! Over the last three weeks, we’ve met with 80 families. We’ve learned about their lives before and after the 1988 earthquake and how living in a domik has changed the way they approach daily life. We’ve also met with 10 Armenian organizations that are working to improve the lives of people in Gyurmi.
Katie Genuario, Meghan Jones, and Bethany Gordon
The Center for Global Health Award has helped us to focus in on the physical and mental health aspects of living in such harsh conditions. We’re really grateful to have incorporated that aspect into our project!
If you’d like to follow our project more closely, we post to our facebook page regularly: https://web.facebook.com/tuff.armenia/
