A glimpse of ROMACT implementation in Velingrad, Bulgaria

Velingrad is a municipality located in southwestern Bulgaria, in Pazardzhik Province. 

Approximately 10% of the population is Roma. For years, 80% of the inhabitants of the Roma neighborhoods of Asphaltova Baza and Anezitsa did not have access to running water and sanitation services.

Thanks to the joint efforts of the Community Action Group and the Municipality, with ROMACT support, half of the population of these neighborhoods are now enjoying these basic rights.
