Roma (Gypsies) in Europe
There are 12-16 million Roma (Gypsies) in Europe and western Eurasia, scattered throughout 26 countries (including 40 regions or semi-autonomous regions), speaking 85+ dialects, and yet only a dozen have the Bible in their Romani dialect.
We support Bible translation for Roma (Gypsy) dialects in Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Montenegro.
