EMDA AND DINKELLAND ARE GIVING AID
TO ROMA IN LIPTOVSKY In 2007 jointly a social building project for Roma
families by Dinkelland and Liptovsky-Mikolas
has been implemented
successfully with the realisation of a social centre and the construction of
nine apartments for Roma families.
This Dutch-Slovakian initiative has been
intensively monitored by the EMDA Organisation from Luxemburg.
At first it was in the intention to build fifteen houses in Liptovsky-Mikulas to be used by the there living
Roma families. The councel of Dinkelland
agreed in May 2006 to provide the credit.
Then Emda researched what had to be done for
preparing the building project. It showed that
the project would have a much longer period for preparation than initial
It would not be possible to start construction before the middle of 2007.
In consultation with the council of LiptovskyMikulas, Emda was looking for
an alternative plan, that
could be implemented on short notice.
The Slovakian council presented then an alternative plan, that had already
gone through the time of
decision-making, and which could start on short notice.
There are now build nine new apartments for Roma families, two rooms for
social education and
a room for homeless people and visitors without a place to stay. Furthermore
there is an office for
police and security.
In an extension phase complementary measures will be undertaken, such as
creating a paved storage area with lighting and
the paving of an entry road and a parking area.
It is the intention in 2009 to prepare an extension-plan for a new joint
initiative in this cross-border development.
It is expected that the EMDA Network from Luxemburg also will be involved in
the assistance and monitoring of the project.
