I examined her and was very encouraged to see how well she was progressing.
This dear family face ongoing medical bills for this little one. ACA is also helping several families with their ongoing regular medication.
Brother Ghita is daily in his office on site and the gypsies can come to him for help with many day-to-day problems including obtaining identity cards, receiving food and clothing aid, as well as medicine.
Aid is collected here in the UK and taken out to Vulcan by lorry 3 or 4 times a year. When we were there, the barn and the store were full as a lorry had just arrived.
Our teams also visited the two Kindergartens run by ACA where gypsy children and the local Romanians learn together. This is a real miracle and is breaking down some of the hostility between the gypsies and the local people. They also had opportunity to visit some of the families in the gypsy village and see where the children live.
This was my fifth visit to this project and it is such a blessing to see how the work is growing and to see changed lives of people in the gypsy village. I first met Romana in 2014 when she was expecting her fourth child, and she had cried and told me that she did not have enough to feed her children each day. On this visit she took us around the gypsy village and showed us her home there. ACA have helped her to improve and extend her home. Her husband Nelu is now working and is a leader in the Baptist church.
