Helps distribute supplies to those who need them most
Location: Bulgaria, Isperih
“The EU is helping us protect the most vulnerable during the crisis”
The EU-funded ROMACT programme is supplying 15,000 people from the Roma community in Bulgaria and Romania with food and hygiene products. They are also informing people in over 30 different towns about how to stay safe during the coronavirus outbreak and access emergency support if they require it. Local activists helped to identify the most vulnerable families, and measures were taken to provide these community members with basic necessities. Shenay Andreeva from @romactbulgaria is part of the community group helping distribute the supplies to those who need them most in these challenging times. All over Europe, citizens like Shenay are helping vulnerable and isolated communities in Europe fight coronavirus. They are safeguarding the welfare of local communities, protecting their human rights, and improving the inclusion of Roma people.
