Help Bosnia! / Pomozite Bosni!

The catastrophic natural disaster hit Bosnia and Herzegovina as the country has been hit with the worst flooding in over a century. The swollen rivers are washing away bridges, landslides are destroying homes, and the roads are blocked off leaving people stranded with nowhere to go. The death toll is still unknown but it is rising daily. The people of Bosnia and Herzegovina have gone through so much suffering during the 1990s and have just begun to re-build their lives. Now they are forced to go through yet another catastrophe. The consequences are truly terrifying.

As soon as the first news came out and the horrific images started to appear in the media, the Association of Bosniaks of New Hampshire (ABNH) sprung into action. Many members and some ordinary citizens donated a considerable amount of money for the relief fund.

We already sent $11,392.00, which is a very significant amount of money that will be used exclusively for the immediate necessities. Based on the trust we gained through earlier cooperation, the Board of Directors of the ABNH forwarded the full amount to the non-governmental association “Prosvjetitelj” (eng. educator, enlightener). It was confirmed that the entire donation will be directed towards the critically affected areas with the most vulnerable population.

However, our help is still very much needed as we head into the second phase of our fundraising. People lost their homes, jobs, real estate, farms that were the main source of their livelihood, the infrastructure is highly damaged, livestock and crops are almost completely destroyed, there are thousands of landslides, dangers are looming due to infectious diseases and the activation of landmines from the war.

We would like to offer our appreciation for your assistance so far and we ask that you continue to respond to our calls for help. With deep gratitude we THANK YOU on behalf of all of those that will certainly receive your help as ABNH formed trustworthy network of people in Bosnia and Herzegovina for channeling the raised funds. PLEASE DONATE NOW!!!

Katastrofalne prirodne nepogode pogodile su Bosnu i Hercegovinu sa najgorim poplavama zabilježenim u istoriji. Nabujale rijeke odnose mostove, klizišta uništavaju kuće a putevi su blokirani ostavljajući ljude u nemilosti. Broj žrtava još uvijek nije poznat a ni konačan. Narod Bosne i Hercegovine je prošao kroz mnogobrojne nedaće u toku devedesetih i tek su počeli da ponovo grade svoje živote. Sada prolaze kroz još jednu katastrofu. Posljedice su zaista zastrašujuće.

Čim su pristigle prve vijesti i strašne slike u medijima, Udruženje Bošnjaka New Hampshire-a (ABNH) pokrenulo je akciju skupljanja pomoći. Mnogi članovi i obični građani su donirali znatna sredstva u ovu svrhu.

Već smo poslali $11,392.00, što je značajna cifra i taj novac će biti korišten isključivo za najosnovnije trenutne potrebe. Na osnovu povjerenja kojeg smo stekli kroz ranije akcije sav novac je proslijeđen udruženju "Prosvjetitelj". Potvrđeno je da će se sav novac rasporediti i usmjeriti prema nakritičnijim lokacijama sa najugroženijim stanovništvom.

Međutim, naša pomoć je i dalje veoma potrebna, jer ulazimo u drugu fazu ovog procesa. Ljudi su ostali bez svojih kuća, poslova, imovine, imanja (koja su često bila glavni izvor primanja), infrastruktura je velikim dijelom oštećena, stočni fond i usjevi su skoro potpuno uništeni, prisutna su mnoga klizišta, opasnosti prijeti od zaraznih bolesti i aktiviranja pomjerenih minskih polja iz proteklog rata.

Želimo da vam se zahvalimo za vašu pomoć koju ste pružili do sada i da vas zamolimo da se nastavite odazivati na naše pozive za pomoć. Uz izraze našeg poštovanja ZAHVALJUJEMO vam se u ime onih koji će dobiti vašu pomoć, jer mi našim aktivnostima formiramo i mrežu ljudi i organizacija od povjerenja.  MOLIMO VAS DONIRAJTE!!!
