Romania is not only one of the poorest nations in Europe, it is also an emigration country from which the younger generation is leaving to find work in France, Spain, Germany and Italy. This leaves behind an over-aged society, which in many cases is in need of care, but can often barely afford to pay for medicines, let alone for visits to the doctor and transport costs. This is where the church organisation Diakonia steps in, with its nurses driving from the cities to the most remote rural areas to provide people with the most necessary medical assistance, also in the times of Covid-19.
