DEPOP Research Group representatives (Kamo Mailyan, Yelena Muradyan and Ani Avetisyan) visited Gyumri on April 6, 2014, to see the living conditions in makeshifts people went into following the earthquake in Gyumri a quarter century ago. The purpose of the visit was to get familiar with the social and living conditions in makeshifts, as well as the work of non-for-profit organizations in Gyumri.

Vahan Tumasyan of Shirak Center NGO took the group to the makeshift area in Gyumri and showed the conditions of living (“survival”) of people that were forced to become homeless after the earthquake a quarter century ago and still live in makeshifts.
