On Friday night members of the Bosnia and Herzegovina community of Melbourne gathered at BH Centre Springvale and managed to raise $27,310.

Recent catastrophic floods in Bosnia and Herzegovina has caused immeasurable destruction and damage all over the country, with hundreds of thousands people directly affected. Numerous landslides destroyed complete villages and many mines, left from the 1990s war were dislodged. It’s been reported that more than 30 lives have been lost, with many more unaccounted for.

To Australian Bosnians this flood has caused considerable distress as our families and friends are directly affected by this catastrophe. Currently our focus is on sending money as it will quickly reach the flood affected areas and provide immediate relief.

We are happy with the collected amount in one night and thank everyone involved for their generous contributions.

Unfortunately, the extent of damage is so huge and Bosnia, still recovering from the war destruction in 1990s, simply cannot cope with such a disaster without international aid.

 

The Australian Union of Bosnia and Herzegovina Associations urges the Australian government to allocate some funds to the region, including Bosnia and Herzegovina and help avert another human tragedy.

 

We also appeal to the community at large to help the most vulnerable, such as kids and elderly. Payment can be made online via Paypal or as bank deposit at Commonwealth bank.
