Habitat Europe: Sofia, Bulgaria

A boy plays in an unfinished Soviet-era building, on a vacant lot on the outskirts of Sofia.  During the communist regime, the Bulgarian government provided low-interest housing loans for families to buy homes in poor-quality blocks of flats.  Once a market economy took hold, the responsibility for housing fell on local authorities, who do not have the resources to deal with the issue. © Habitat for Humanity International/Ezra Millstein
