I was in Bulgaria on behalf of the charity "Feed His People" who in the past 18 months have shipped over £6M in aid in the form of food and clothing to poor communities including Brestniza. This charity was set-up and run by one family.

When people look at problems such as poverty and poor living conditions they often feel helpless and impotent. However, there are many examples of individuals who make a massive difference. It is possible for any of us to create a small splash in the ocean that becomes a ripple, that becomes a giant wave of help and assistance. We all have skills and resources that we can use to help others.
Whilst I was in Fakulteta another deprived Roma community with many problems we spoke to a group of people there who were attending church about the people of Studentskigrad. Although they have many issues themselves many volunteered to go and visit these people and talk with them and be an ear to listen.
