Wrap up of a rally.
Tuesday, January 26, 2010
Sunday to Monday night was the coldest night of the year in Romania so far. Thermometers recorded -34 degrees Celsius (-29Fahrenheit). Dozens of people have died of hypothermia. All of these people were homeless. Authorities are trying to put them in shelters. However, there are a few that either do not know about these shelters, or simply refuse to go. I've started documenting the work of an NGO that's helping people in this situation. Below, Danut Cretu reaches out for a cup of hot soup delivered by social workers. Cretu lives on the streets and sleeps underneath heating pipes at night.
