Habitat planning trip to Armenia
Habitat for Humanity Santa Cruz County is gathering a group that will
build homes for low-income families in Armenia from May 22 to June 5.
Larissa Printzian of the nonprofit group is recruiting 10 people for
the trip. Participants pay their own way, many by seeking donations.
Many Armenia families have been living in metal containers, called
domiks, since 1988, when they were brought to the country as part of
the relief effort after the 1988 earthquake, Printzian said. The
domiks are hot in the summer and provide little shelter from cold
during winter months, she said.
