This GoFundMe page is the last thing I thought I would be making this morning; it’s something I never expected to have to make. But- alas, the time has come so please read on and consider donating anything you can spare.
The flooding in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and more specifically in my hometown of Bosanski Samac-which sits right on the river Bosna-has become something out of nightmare; it is simply monstrous and beyond words. The media reports that the recent flooding is the worst natural disaster to come around in the last 120 years. Right now, as we sit here in the comforts of our home or jobs, these people are being torn from their homes- yet again. At this very moment, people are being displaced and faced with an unimaginable force of nature. The people of Bosnia who have already lived through a war and suffered so much are yet again facing a life with no running water, electricity, or shelter.
Currently, the city is asking any able bodied people to help with rescue and recovery missions. Though I can’t be there to physically provide support I am determined to help in any way I can. It is with a great sadness and determination that I urge you- and plead with you, to PLEASE donate anything that you can!
All donations will be collected on this page and donated to the city and surrounding area immediately.
