Rebuild for Bosnia was established as a direct response to the intensity of suffering Patricia Keane witnessed when she first visited Bosnia Herzegovina in 1998, three years after the war, now classified as theworst since World War II ceased.
What was left in its wake was 450,000 permanently displaced people who still continue to endure the inhumane living conditions of huts and shacks in collective centres for refugees and who exist on one meal a day from the camp’s soup kitchen.
Without the help of non government organisations like Rebuild for Bosnia the displaced people will never be in a position to build new homes as current unemployment rates stand at 60%.
To date Bosnia Herzegovina has no welfare structures in place to alleviate suffering.
Rebuild for Bosnia has housed over 1000 people to date and provides living allowances and home care services for the most vulnerable and marginalised.
