In 2012 we had a full house with Refugees.

 

This year we had 21 Refugees from Myanmar at Casa Shalom. This was a new project and a challenge for us. It's  not easy trying to integrate Refugees into the Romanian society. Refugees need to know the rules from the very beginning. This would help them. Communication is the biggest problem. Many times we think they understand but don't and this is one of the biggest problems a person has to deal with.  The gov't or anybody else should not make promises they know they can not fulfill. It was a great learning experience and some of them are now living in their own rented apt's here in Bucharest. We are glad to see they are becoming independent and successful at their jobs and raising their families.
