Feride Ramadan Mehmed (left) and her husband Mehmed hold their children Birdzhan, 1, and Erdzhan, 3, in their house in the Maxsuda neighborhood of Varna, Bulgaria. They are Turkish-speaking Roma, and were violently driven out of one neighborhood by racist gangs. They took refuge in a United Methodist Church for a year before finding this small house to rent.
