    This time world champion Suzy Kentikyan punches to fight homelessness in

    On July 30 Lilit Asatryan leading Armenian Young Women Association and the
    world boxing WBA ? WIBF champion Suzy Kentikyan, joined Fuller Center for
    Housing Armenia to build with Martirosyan family in Haytagh village, Armavir

    This was not the first time when Armenian Young Women Association led by
    Lilit Asatryan was joining those in housing need by their volunteer
    contribution to help the families and to encourage others to volunteer. On
    their initiative Suzy Kentikyan used the strength of her muscles to fight
    the homelessness away from her homeland.

    "I am very glad that I can be useful somehow to those in housing need as
    well...I wish they finish their home as soon as possible and move in" said

    Suzy Kentikyan, her sister and her grandfather arrived to Armenia from
    Northern Hollywood as well as AYWA group consisted of 15 volunteers helped
    Martirosyan family to lay concrete waterproof layer around the house.

    "We will remain strong as long as fragile women like Lilit volunteer with us
    from year to year and thus make their contribution to the brighter future of
    our families. We do become stronger, when celebrated sportsmen and
    sportswomen are standing next to us and build with the needy in Armenia. We
    are grateful, as the power of our compatriots is extremely valuable for our
    mission to give children an opportunity to live in safe homes and to have
    safe future," said Armen Avetisyan, the Executive Director of Fuller Center
    for Housing Armenia" I am sure together we will win in this battle against
    poverty housing in Armenia".

    Martirosyan family got a chance to build a house many years ago, when they
    received their plot of land for building. But it is impossible to start
    construction and to finish a house with the earning of a locksmith. They
    could only erect the walls and had no means to finish the house and make
    their dream of own house come true. "When we learnt that our family was
    selected as partner family of Fuller Center for Housing Armenia, we were so
    happy, realizing that now we have an opportunity to complete our home. And
    now when such people join us and work with us we are proud and grateful"
    said Sargis Martirosyan.
