We Demand Decent Housing for Roma Families
We are deeply concerned about the poor conditions of 30 Roma families living in Albania. Together with our partner, the Albanian Helsinki Committee we have sent a letter to the local Government of the municipality of Gjirokastra.
The families who are living along the Drino River are facing a difficult and problematic situation. Even though they have lived there for the past 12 years, they still lack running water, electricity and proper housing.
We are requesting from the local authorities to ensure that the families get access to running water, electricity and proper housing. We also emphasise that all decisions should be in consultation with the families.
