After leasing several apartments in different regions of Armenia over the past 20 years, two years ago, Kristine, 37, and her eight minor children settled in an apartment that had been temporarily given to them by the My Step Foundation. However, today, representatives of the Foundation called her on the phone and told her she has one day to leave the apartment. Kristine and her eight children will be out on the streets since she has nowhere to go, and none of her relatives has agreed to host her during the coronavirus pandemic, as reported Tert.am.
“I asked the Foundation to give us a little time to be able to look for a place to stay. I have eight children, and my elder son is going to be drafted in two to three months. The Foundation doesn’t care and says if we don’t leave, the police will come and take us out,” Kristine said.
Kristine asked the My Step Foundation for a little time to find another apartment, but the Foundation has already sent a truck to remove the items from the apartment.
“Before moving to this apartment, we lived in a garage, and my children were temporarily staying at the Zatik Children’s Support Center. Now we can’t go back to that garage. I had great expectations from the Prime Minister and elected him with the hope that something would change in my life, but today, nothing has changed, things are worse, and it feels like I’m drowning in the sea,” Kristine said.
