Help for flood victims in Bosnia

Dear Milwaukee Friends,

As you may have already heard, the Balkans region has been hit with the... worst flood in 120 years. Several months of rain fell in just 48 hours, causing rapidly rising rivers to surge into homes, sometimes reaching up to the second floors, sending people climbing to rooftops waiting to be rescued. Tens of thousands were forced to flee, while those who were able to stay in their homes were left without electricity or drinking water. Authorities are reporting 17 lives lost, but the death toll is expected to rise.

This is a terrible catastrophe for Bosnia, a country that is already dealing with a stagnant economy and is recovering from a recent war.

All funds collected will be sent to a Bosnian agency named Udruzenje Gradjana Komsiluk. The work of this wonderful organization can be seen by visiting their FB Page https://www.facebook.com/#!/UdruzenjeKomsiluk. They will announce on their page when and how much money was donated.
They also share how the money will be used. We strongly encourage you to follow this wonderful organization.
