Romania: migration for economic reasons result in an abandonment of "old"

A phenomenon which becomes massive in Bulgaria too

Romanians who migrate outside their country to seek work in Western Europe, are forced to abandon their elderly parents. NGO denounces a phenomenon that becomes massive today.

"The elderly are left to themselves while their children will find work in other European countries. They suffer from loneliness, sickness and also financial problems, "says Catalin Luca, a psychologist who heads the Romanian "Alternative Social ", a charity for those in need.

Located in Iasi, north Romania, socialist alternative to over the past two years provided counseling to more than 1000 children and the elderly.

More than two million Romanians, adults in the prime of life and tens of thousands of Bulgarians have emigrated, mainly in Western Europe.

To find work, they left behind aged parents, some are in big trouble.

Alternative Social initiative is almost unique in Romania, which has provided assistance to over 400 seniors last year. Unicredit Foundation has allocated a budget to reduce the impact of immigration on the population living in the country.
