My story

[p]On September 5th 2020, I will be going back to Sarajevo in BiH with Lucinda Peyton-Jones to work with Women Victims of War, Concentration Camp Survivors and Civil War Survivors as part of the Healing Hands Network.[/p][p]Despite the Bosnian war having ended over 23 years ago, the suffering of the survivors is still vividly raw. Many have PTSD and very little in the way of support. For some widows who lost their husbands in the genocide, there is no compensation without a physical body, and for many this will never be a reality. [/p][p]This is a beautiful city with some amazingly resilient inhabitants, all of whom are trying to make a better world for their children and their children's children. [/p][p]Healing Hands is a voluntary organisation who send volunteers out to our clinic in Sarajevo where we divide our time between our clinic and several outreach centres. We see up to 7 clients a day, all of whom come from support organisations, demonstrating that there are people in this world who have not forgotten them or what happened in Sarajevo and the villages surrounding [/p][p]The money raised will pay for flights, accommodation, local staff, consumables and equipment.[/p][p]Thank you all for your help.[/p]
