In Kosovo, an unlikely friendship between a Serb grandmother and her Albanian ‘brother'

An improbable friendship has blossomed between a 92-year-old Serb woman, the only person left in her abandoned Kosovo village, and an ethnic Albanian grocer who has been bringing her food several days a week. Fadil Rama, the 48-year-old shopkeeper who lives several kilometres away in an Albanian-majority village, has continued his trips to visit Vladica Dicic throughout the coronavirus crisis, bringing groceries, news and companionship. The friendship marks a rare bridge between Kosovo's Serb and Albanian communities, whose relations are still defined by lingering mistrust from the former province's 1990s independence war from Serbia.
