The humanitarian association (HA) of “PRIJATELJICE” was registered in July 1996 as a local non-governmental organisation. Its founders are its staff, beneficiaries, and friends from the international organisation «Amica e.V.» Freiburg – Germany. International organisation “Amica” e.V. started to operate in Germany immediately when the word spread about the conflict in the former Yugoslavia. First assistance included food, clothing, footware and hygiene items that this organisation was shipping to Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. Its permanent mission in the Tuzla Canton started in 1994, while UHD “Prijateljice” as a local NGO took over and continued its activities in 1996.
