Radvanka. Uzhhorod is home to several thousand Roma in six camps. Due to rampant job discrimination on the part of the majority, nearly al the Roma are unemployed. They are thus relegated to collecting metal for sale and doing business with clothing or building materials. State unemployment benefits are nonexistent. Families therefore often live off of small amounts of children’s welfare benefits as well as these small business ventures. (Uzhhorod, 2007.)

Sunday Services, Radvanka. Most of the Roma from the Radvanka camp belong to the Dživdo Del (Living God) Church. Some of them make regular trips to hear sermons. Uzhhorod has several Romani ministers, each of whom constitutes a specific branch of this religious denomination. Faith in God and regular attendance at sermons help these Roma. Those who regularly come to services have stopped smoking and drinking. They are able to be happy even in the harsh conditions in which they live. Faith brings them light, hope and the belief in a happy eternal life. (Uzhhorod, 2007)
