Concentration Camps 2

Photo of Vasky (2007)I hope you haven't forgotten this photo of 18-year-old Vasky I showed you in November (CLICK). There is good news. The director of the institute resigned, and two Unicef representatives are now handling specialist care work there. Vasky and a number of other severely malnourished children were hospitalised for a while. The food situation has improved. Didi now has a team of Bulgarian lawyers arguing that she's been arbitrarily detained. Click the title link for more news and to sign the petition if you haven't already done so. For those of you who missed Kate Blewett's superb documentary on the plight of the children at Mogilino, note the repeat: Bulgaria's Abandoned Children on BBC4 Wednesday 12 December 2007 at 11pm. Kate has been invited to show her film to the European Parliament early next year.
