Story

While COVID-19 has caused many in the UK to suffer in many ways including financially, these problems are amplified further in other parts of the world.

Due to generations of racism, Roma families living in the Balkans often face severe poverty, unemployment, and a lack of access to health care, education, and other services. It is estimated about 10,000 girls, mostly of Roma descent, are sex-trafficked each year in Bulgaria alone. The COVID-19 crisis has significantly increased the vulnerability in these communities, leaving many with no food to eat.

As a church we partner closely with the team working in Bulgaria, Serbia and North Macedonia working to prevent trafficking and reduce the vulnerability in these communities. In response to the current crisis they are running an emergency feeding program in around 50 communities, costing a total of around £4500 per month. They desperately need financial support to keep this vital work going a little longer.
