University worker feeds family of 12 with 242 Euros a month
Vesel Presresha feeds a family of 12 with 242 Euros a month, which he earns delivering meat to University of Pristina students. The university provides free housing for Presresha and his family, but the housing complex that houses 17 families features holes in the ceiling, crumbling walls and junk strewn about the yard. The rundown building, located in the center of Pristina on Mother Teresa Avenue, sits between some of the city’s nicest buildings. From his one-room dwelling, Presresha can see the National Library through his window. When he walks out his front door, he sees the University of Pristina’s language department, where English, French, philosophy and chemistry classes are taught.
