Blythswood Update – January 13th 2021

Daniel Centre

The church’s FEBE old folk’s nursing home initially lost 3 residents to the Covid pandemic but the home is now Covid-free.  The number of daily cases in the country has fallen from above 10,000 to just above 4,000.

André, and Gaby are still without work.  Daniel continues to do occasional delivery jobs but is still very serious about his studies.  The Centre currently has 2 vacancies.

There has been no update on news over the festive season about Soreen in Italy wanting to come back to the Centre.  Cipri and  Alix need to see big changes in attitude if they want to continue at the Centre.

Two businesses have expressed serious intentions of renting in the re-developed Blythswood depot.

There are hopes that the new government will be less mired in bureaucracy than the outgoing one.

 Talita Kum

TK1 and TK2 are, like the Romanian schools, closed again. Over the festive period, there has been no progress on Adi’s appeal against the initial refusal of their application for EU funds for running costs for TKs 1-4.
