Gironde: an old Cenon retirement home "requisitioned" to house families on the street


There is no no running water, no heating, no electricity, but for Valbona and his daughter Almeida, the installation in a former Ehpad in Cenon is already a progress.Because with the fall of the temperatures and the bad weather of the last days, to sleep under the tent was becoming more and more critical for this family who arrived from Albania a year ago.

A few days ago, with the help of an association collective, like Valbona and her daughter, some fifty families settled in this old retirement home.

This Saturday, a support operation was organized, also aimed at improving the conditions of installation of the occupants.

The occupation of these places by these families is not considered as a long-term solution.
