Supporting Widows and Orphans in Bosnia

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Bosnia-Herzegovina

Bosnia-Herzegovina was the first country Islamic Relief USA responded to, providing vital emergency assistance in the form of food, water, and clothing to survivors of the war. In the war’s aftermath, Islamic Relief also rebuilt homes, schools, and places of worship destroyed during the war. In recent years, IRUSA has offered support to flood survivors, orphans, and the elderly.

Here’s just a sampling of recent efforts for families in need across Bosnia

  • Supporting orphans in need and their families
  • Delivering urgent food aid to those living in hunger
  • Implementing vocational programming to help build sustainable livelihoods

Past Flood Emergency

On Nov. 4, heavy rains caused severe flooding in Bosnia, prompting evacuations, causing power outages, and submerging roads. Hundreds of homes in Sarajevo and in the south-western part of the country have had to be evacuated. The flooding has caused severe damage to buildings, roads and agricultural land.

Floods and landslides also struck other parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Our team at IR Bosnia have identified the needs right now to be food and water, hygiene kits, bedding items, and shelter for affected families.

We need to act quickly, especially as this is all happening as frigid, blustery weather kicks in–please donate generously so that we can support these emergency efforts on the ground.
