Challenge

Caused by the global climate changes, people's neglection and heavy rains, Tuzla region (north-eastern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina) has been hit by severe historical flooding during last three years (particularly in May). Metereologists findings are that such heavy rains have not affected Bosnia and Herzegovina in the last 120 years. The country is in the state of emergency, there is massive destruction of peoples' homes, bridges, roads and other infrastructure.

Solution

We will try to give support for people in need especially to children in the situation of need. In these difficult moments which hit B&H mostly all engagements are focused on the financial support that is the priority. Rarely can be provided psychological support in this traumatic circumstances. We shall try to make influence and activities on this fields for evacuated adult persons and children. Beside this kind of help we shall try to purchase the most important items for these people.

Long-Term Impact

As a long-term result of this is primarily empowered population that had been evacuated from their homes and spent some time in the collective centers. Children and adults worked on prezivljenoj trauma and therefore easier to move the restoration and reconstruction, as well as building from scratch. People have the main things for normal life again.
