Family support

Support in an emergency

Social workers visit neglected Roma families in the remote villages every day. They bring the bare essentials to survive, help with dealing with authorities and obtaining documents. Volunteers pick up the children from the huts in the morning to take them to school.

Since the beginning of the COVID crisis, ELIJAH has distributed over 1,000 food packages to starving families.

Help for self-help

Together with the fathers we repair their huts or build weatherproof houses. In our agricultural projects, young Roma learn self-sufficiency and find jobs. We dig wells in the villages to give the families drinking water. With the Sat Curat - Clean Village campaign, women collect litter from the streets. The villages are changing step by step.
