We have many families that we sustain with a food allowance per month, otherwise they would be starving. If you are interested in finding out more about our families that require monthly support we would be very happy to introduce them to you by emailing their profile. email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also set up a regular donation through Direct Debit in order to support our ongoing projects. Rebuild for Bosnia will promise that your donation will help the families that we are presently building homes for. Your regular donation means Rebuild for Bosnia will be in a position to provide sustainability, as well as the security needed.
A regular donation means we can guarantee ongoing monthly living allowances . Therefore more of your donation goes directly towards helping people in the poorest country in Europe with unemployment running at 45% - 60%.
€100 a month will help Rebuild for Bosnia provide nourishing food for one family for a whole month.
€50 a month would help buy medicines for those on long term medication.
€30 a month would help pay for electricity and fuel for families with very little income.
