Three little girls and their parents from Arad County (West Romania) are living in cemetery. The only income of the family is† the children's government allowance, Romania TV news channel informs.
The family moved into a fortune house in the Catholic cemetery from Vinga village a year ago.
The father of the three girls admits life is hard, mostly when the table stays empty, as they do not have money for food.
"One time, it was midnight as I recall, one of my daughters told me: 'Daddy, I know you don't have money, but when you will, would you please buy me a whole bread?" I froze, I couldn't tell her anything. She pains me so much with her questions. She keeps asking, daddy why aren't we living in a house, why am I not going to the kindergarten LIKE the other children", Adrian Benga says.
The parents are trying to teach the children at home as they want them to have an education. "I want to see my children grown up, educated, I don't want them wanderING the streets, homeless or God forbid what", the father says.
The social worker of the village defends herself saying that the parents refuse to send the children to the kindergarten, but the parents say they don't have money for clothes and supplies.
"They should be monitored on a daily basis and checked effectively. We tried to talk to them, to convince the parents to send the kids to the kindergarten. They keep promising they will", social worker Ligia Stiglet.
A villagers said that the municipality provided the poor family the improper house in the cemetery.
†"I don't know for what reason they gave them that house. The villagers tried to help them how we could", a villager said.
Despite the so-called help, the Benga family has no hope for the future and continues to leave among tomb stones.
