Helpers wanted to rebuild burnt-down houses of Roma families in Hungary

The International Building Organisation (Ludwigshafen, Germany), in cooperation with the Central Council of German Sinti and Roma (Heidelberg), organises in May (16-30.5.) and July (18.7.-1.8.) several aid projects to rebuild burnt-down houses of Roma families in Hungary who, at the same time, were also victims of assassination attempts. Background: in 2009, six Roma people fell victim to a series of murders committed by the same group of perpetrators; in total eleven Roma have been killed in the last two years in Hungary. Molotov cocktails were often thrown into the houses and, afterwards, the fleeing people were shot down. A total of twenty cases of arson attacks in Hungary during the last two years were registered.

The Building Organisation is looking for committed and technically skilled helpers for the Construction Weeks. Accommodation and meals are free. 70, - € for travel expenses. No registration fee for Construction Week in May. Information: Peter Runck info@bauorden.de or +49 621 6355 4946
