NGO "Voice of Roma Ashkali and Egyptians" has visited Ahmet Mziu's family, a beneficiary of the project for improvement of living conditions, in village of Medvec in Lipjan Municipality. This project is supported by HEKS & SDC.
The house of Ahmet Mziu in the pas has been constructed with very poor materials. The walls have been made of clay brick, the roof has been completely damaged and during the winter there have been leaks of water when snow and rain fall. According to them, the whole family has been endangered because of the poor conditions of the house they were living in. There was no running water inside the house and the difficulty for having a normal life was too hiigh. Just two weeks after the construction of the house finished Mr. Ahmet Mziu died.
Remzie Mziu, a 55 year-old widow, now living with her son and his family stressed that her husband died happy knowing that his family is safe now. Remzie's nephews were very happy and thankful to VoRAE NGO for the opportunity offered with the construction of the new bathroom as well as two rooms. On the other hand, Remzie's daughter in law claimed that for a long period of time she washed their kids in a basket outside the house and now a new bathroom is very important not only for their child's cleanliness but also for their health.
