Civil Society Organizations call for authorities to fulfil the basic human rights of the Roma community

For several weeks more than forty families including 88 children from a Roma community in Tirana have been living in temporary shelters on the pavement after being evicted from their informal settlement in the former 'Dekorit' premises on the Rruga Kavaja. This community is in an extremely vulnerable situation with health and hygiene conditions deteriorating on a daily basis. The children and community are exposed to constant danger from the traffic on the busy road.

Save the Children’s Emergency Response to the most Affected Roma Community

The district of Shkodra is experiencing heavy localized floods for the fourth consecutive year. Floods are primarily caused by heavy rains and increased water levels of the two hydropower plants and rivers in the area. Unfortunately, clear solutions to curb this reality are yet to be identified and hundreds of people end up affected each year.
