THE LINES FOR BREAD HIDE IN RAHOVA

Hundreds of pensioners crowd three days a week, as early as 4 am, to get free bread from the Pensioners’ “Omenia” 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 has been giving away bread at the “Omenia” since 2003. He has noticed something over these seven years: people come to the house more and more poorly dressed. “Worse dressed and more wretched. I pitty them! Now, if I look better, I can see their numbers is down because some of them have died in the meantime”, says Ispas.
