Roma “Gypsies” have existed as a people group for centuries, often mistreated and persecuted. Many times the paved road ends at the entrance to a Roma settlement. Life can be harsh due to social, economic and other factors especially during winter months when food is scarce and weather conditions can be the hardest.
