On the occasion of April 8th, in Romania, we distributed 100 flags and 100 leaflets to Roma communities, public institutions, churches, leaders of Roma communities, writes Ciprian Bogdan, thanks to the Roma Entrepreneurs Development Initiative
“I took a lot of pictures but first 2 impressed me a lot. A Roma young man who kissed the flag when he first see it, and an older lady who put the flag on her chest and held him there like a baby! These people and many others were overwhelmed by this joy because no one told them that we, the Roma, have a flag, an anthem, a history, a name! From today on these people are being proud to be Roma!”
