We Lived in Peace

Far we lived in peace

Before the war in Artsakh, 48-year-old Silva Ghazaryan worked as a cook in Jabrail in Artsakh. The mother of five lived in a spacious apartment. For the past two months, Silva has grown accustomed to living in a small dorm room in Yerevan. Due to the small living quarters she had to send three of her five children to stay with friends and relatives. She now shares the dorm room with her husband, Marat, 50, and their two youngest children, Sussanna, 11, and Suren, 16. The family was forced to flee Jabrail after war broke out on September 27th.
