Active construction works are underway in Sisian, a town in Armenia's Syunik Province. The homeowners, who have lived in 5 different homes with the last 18 years of their life, are now on the construction site. The walls of the rented house have become more bearable in summer, but the extended family strives to sooner finish the construction and build the semi-built building purchased 10 year ago, Viva-MTS said in a press release.

The process is in the center of attention of partnering organizations.
