Hundreds of pensioners crowd three days a week, as early as 4 am, to get free bread from the Pensionersâ âOmeniaâ Mutual Help House in the Rahova district, Bucharest, reminiscence of the communist-era endless queues. Here, every week, a strange type of party also occurs. Beyond the sad looks, those several hundreds pensioners that stand in line crack a joke and chat. Paul Ispas is very well organized when it comes to volunteering for âOmeniaâ. For seven years, three times a week, he has diligently prepared the coupons for the pensioners that wait for him.
