Romania has been a member of the European Union since 2007. It says it has committed to the care of some of its most vulnerable citizens – disabled people.
But People & Power has uncovered highly disturbing evidence about systematic abuse in the country's state institutions.

NetHope and Google.org believe that access to Internet resources is key to connecting refugees to their new communities. With the support from Google.org, NetHope is launching Project Reconnect: an initiative providing 25,000 managed Chromebooks to nonprofit organizations supporting refugees in Germany. The project aims to help refugees as they strive to rebuild their lives, by facilitating access to education and information resources on the web. Nonprofits can apply for a grant of up to 5,000 Chromebooks.
