Help Flood Victims in Serbia & Bosnia
As of the 17th of May, the Balkan regions of Bosnia and Serbia have been hit by torrential rain that has resulted in extreme damage to homes, villages, livestock and the need for more than 25,000 people to be evacuated from their homes.
“The physical destruction is not less than the destruction caused by the war” states Bosnian Foreign Minister Zlatko Lagumdzja” (*credit RTE news)
With offices and programmes in the Balkans, we at SPARK want to express our concern and encourage people to show their support by making a donation to provide international support and help with the reconstruction process that lies ahead. Contributions and donations will also assist flood victims in providing them housing, food and clean water.
