Roma Pensioner Feeding Program

Most Roma pensioners are unable to receive state assistance as they do not have the legal documents to prove residency. Although we are helping them obtain the necessary documents, in the meantime they are in need of assistance. The only source of income for the elderly is cleaning the streets, sifting through garbage, or begging. We have partnered with a local Roma church who provides half of the funding to provide food supplements for 100 Roma pensioners.  We have committed to raising the other $365.  Currently we have raised $265, thus we still need to raise $100 in monthly pledged support.
