FLOODS AND SLIDES DISASTER IN TUZLA/B&H

Caused by the global climate changes, people’s neglection and heavy rains, Tuzla region (north-eastern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina) has been hit by severe historical floodings during last three years (particularly in May).
Metereologists findings are that such heavy rains have not affected Bosnia and Herzegovina in the last 120 years.
The country is in the state of emergency, there is massive destruction of peoples’ homes, bridges, roads and other infrastructure.
Due to the big slides in Tuzla (over 640 at the moment), hundreds of people are being evacuated from their homes. 269 people are being accommodated in in two hotels, one sport center, youth camp and primary school, and majority of the people are accommodated at family and friends’ homes. 24 houses are completely destroyed, 53 heavily damaged, 146 endangered. So far, 707 people are engaged in the actions of protection and rescue. They are in big need of basic items such as food, potable water, clothing, and in the later phase furniture and other house appliances.

    I had tried to do this via the PayPal link on the website and it didn’t work. Finally found the bank information — my beloved Tuzla needs all our help!
