Even God can't help

Even God can't help

Zuzana Harakaldova is a 27-year-old single mother of three children living in one of the poorest Roma communities in eastern Slovakia.

She lives in the outskirts of Trebišov, a small industrial town of 23,000 people, just 40 kilometers from the Ukrainian border.

Harakaldova’s husband is in prison and her one-room home only has room for two couches and a clothes bureau.

She says it’s the only place where they can live and sleep.

Although many Roma traditionally have a strong sense of faith, Harakaldova finds herself doubting her faith in God and the Catholic Church as she struggles to support her children everyday.

"The Church believes God can help but I'm not so sure," she says.
