Sali and his family live on the outskirts of Durres, Albania.  Below sea level, their house looks out on empty, desolate swamp land. Every time it rains, the battered and broken house floods through the floors and the cracked roof. The land is considered toxic, a result of sulphur explosions from a nearby chemical plant. They stay simply because they have nowhere else to go. “I have known sadness and struggle all my life,” Sali, 38, says.

His only source of income today is collecting recycling bottles. MWB’s Albanian team are supporting Sali and his family through its Families in Crisis project, providing urgent food & hygiene parcels, clothing, shoes, blankets and furniture to help restore their dignity. Learn more at mwbca.org on how MWB is also providing emotional & spiritual support and in so doing, helping bring hope to people rooted in deep poverty and helplessness.
