    Houses made of scrap material, no running water, no electricity – if you think it sounds like Texas after a winter storm or a forgotten refugee camp, think again. This describes home for thousands of Roma families across Serbia. Many of them ended up in Serbia two decades ago fleeing the war in Kosovo. Their temporary shelter, now permanent housing – entire makeshift neighborhoods that Serbian authorities seem to overlook year after year. DW correspondent Fanny Facsar visited one of these settlements on the outskirts of Belgrade.
