Roma in Kosovo
The Roma population in Kosovo was accused of having sided with the Serbian, consequently persecuted and sent away from the Kosovo's towns. In reality the Roma are unwanted by the Serbian too and been forced to live in enclaves. They are unemployable and have no access to education and health care. Mostly to survive they rummage through the city dumps and try to use or sell whatever they found. They depend on humanitarian organisations for any health check, food and education. The Roma community of Zitkovac in the outskirts of Mitrovice is not different. It is forced to live in sheds and they rely on aid organisation for any assistance. Medicos del Mundo is one of the few NGO's left in the region that assist the Roma communities.
