Watch a preview of A Closer Walk’s premiere episode: The Roma (Albania).
For centuries the Roma have suffered discrimination, inequality, and abject poverty. Derogatively labeled “gypsies,” these people struggle for survival every day on the streets of Albania, with few allies and even fewer resources. Local ADRA workers Rezi and Kristi take us on a Roma experience to a dilapidated hospital, a house crowded to capacity by extended family, and a rare outing to the seaside, to show us the humanity behind the negative stereotypes.
Airs Fridays at 7 PM EST on Hope Channel (www.hopetv.org).
