In July, Pete drove back to Romania with his van filled with resources for Dinah who is living in Orastie for a couple of months. Dinah will bring together those with additional needs who we've supported in the past and she's also helping with the amazing work of Tijs & Jessica among the Roma community in Geoagiu. Before leaving from UK, everyone in UK were anxious....it wouldn't be safe....border controls will stop me getting through.... documents needed and proof I don't have Covid.... lots of negative stuff. Truthfully, I've always said the media completely 'hype-up' stuff and the journey proved this....NOT ONE border stop before Romania, no questions, no temperature taken and the van wasn't even opened to check contents from leaving Stratford upon Avon to arriving in Orastie. Don't be fooled by the media hype!
Following a few days behind, were Dinah and Sue driving Dinah's car. This was a huge challenge for them both, driving in Europe for the first time. Sue was amazing because, knowing she would return to UK after only a few days in Romania and facing 14 days self-isolation. They too had no problems or questions at border controls and they arrived safely to Orastie where I was waiting to be with them for a couple of days.
