Where I stayed
Even as we were unloading shoeboxes various NGO's and groups that we have worked with before arrived to collect boxes for distribution to prisoners' children, a baby orphanage and the local community around the Baptist Church. Miryana had a fun filled couple of hours directing boxes to the various groups and making sure all the numbers added up.
In the afternoon the team split up to deliver boxes to other groups with Rich, Beccy and Niki visiting an NGO based in the Fakulteta District of Sofia, a large Roma community with an unofficial population of 30,000 people
After another battle with the capital's traffic it was time for pizza at Miryana's and yet another revision of our plans for the coming week (this is pretty much a daily occurrence), and finally Rich and Beccy make it back to HoJ by 10 o'clock.
Tomorrow will see our first distribution of the trip at Skravena Roma Community and a very exciting event for the children of Lipnitza orphanage school in the evening. But for now we have a very serious appointment with some pillowzzzzzzzzzz.
