Crucea Rosie

As the canicula (heatwave) was so relentless, in every town with a local branch of the Crucea Rosie (Red Cross) you’d see their volunteers trying to help people who were suffering in the extreme heat. As well as giving out water, they also had doctors on hand to check blood pressure etc. It’s not to be sniffed at – while I was there a number of people died from heat-related problems (although not in Sibiu I don’t think, just elsewhere in the country).
