No I.D, No Pension: 75 Year-Old Woman Faces Eviction from Trailer



By anyone’s standards, 75 year-old Zemfira Aghajanyan has fallen on hard times.

For the past several years, Mrs. Aghajanyan has been living in a metal trailer parked on a street in the community of Erebouni.

Neighbors do what they can to help the senior citizen get by. Some claim that that local agencies treat Mrs. Aghajanyan with contempt.

Since Mrs. Aghajanyan lacks any identification papers, she cannot get any pension allowances, even an old age pension.

Sousanna Ter-Sahakyan resides on the same street as Mrs. Aghajanyan. She frequently stops by to see how the senior is getting along. Sousanna even hired an attorney to retrieve Mrs. Aghajanyan’s documents from the state archives.

Mrs. Ter-Sahakayn says that when she escorted her neighbour to the passport division, officials scoffed at the senior and didn’t raise a hand to help.

The district social services division found a copy of Mrs. Aghajanyan’s medical records and promised to hand them over to the attorney.

Mrs. Ter-Sahakyan notes that because the old woman has taken in a number of stray cats and dogs, other neighbours might file a nuisance complaint with the Erebouni Municipality.

“The trailer is really a mess. The town might condemn the place and Mrs. Aghajanyan might be forced out onto the street to spend her last remaining days,” Ter-Sahakyan told me.

Oh! How Christian your armenian government is !!! It takes care of its orphans and widows by tossing them out into the street. And if your so-called "armenian apostolic church" does not do its UTMOST to support the likes of Mrs Z. Aghajanyan, it will clearly show to the whole world, that armenian version of christianity has nothing to do with Jesus Christ. In the mean time feel free to spout your old cliche of "we are the first christian nation in the world" as loud as you like. It is so very, very, very hollow sounding!!

Xunsap'ha, do tell, as such a staunch critic, tell us what religious denomination do you belong to? Enlighten the rest of us as to the green pastures that you tread on.

This poor woman, along with all seniors, widows, disabled and orphans should be taken care of by the Armenian Government. It is a shame...really a shame that we must see such horrible conditions lived by our compatriots. The Diaspora does all it can to help from the outside. The Armenian Government must not be corrupt, must be strong, righteous, moral, strengthen its military, educated its citizenry, enroucage business building without bribery and increase toursim. Armenia has a future. It has a promise. It can survive. However, it will die and be taken over if Armenians can not run an honest government.

Bruce, I belong to no religion and no denomination. Reason? I see religion as man's way of deceptively manipulating his/her fellow humans, in order to achieve some measure of control over others and to acquire financial gain. My pastures are green indeed, simply because I have no time for religious crooks and charlatans and their ilk of any and every background. Furthermore, I see religion as the chief cause of the miseries armenians have experienced down through history. Instead of wasting my time with "religious mumbo jumbo", I define my humanity by helping others around me, as much as I can. If I knew I would die tomorrow I would still stick with my views on the subject. My advice to others is simple: Trust no man, and especially avoid like the plague the so-called "religious" variety.
