Croatia 2019 July 26 - August 11
Reconciliation. Justice. Healing. These values come alive in us because of the Gospel.

Who are the Roma?
“Commonly called “gypsies,” the Roma are Europe’s largest minority. Throughout Europe the Roma suffer disproportionately from poverty, illiteracy and lack of to basic services. Often portrayed as beggars and thieves, treated like second-class citizens, many Roma opt out of the formal economy and disengage from politics entirely, believing - sometimes rightly - that these avenues offer no viable hope for bettering their lives.” (Huffington Post - Roma Challenges)
