It is our concern to inform our friends and supporters as well as the public continuously about current developments in our work and to sensitize about the situation of the Roma in Romania.

You can have an overview of our activity in the letters from Transylvania, in the publications of ELIJAH and in the many pictures you can find with the media.

Letters from Transilvania
