International Forum of Solidarity – Emmaus provided food for 182 users in the area of Srebrenica, Bratunac, Gracanica and Doboj East through their project “One meal a day”.

This project of the non-governmental humanitarian organization from BiH has been realized since June, 2017. With the intention to ensure the continuity of a delivery of food to existing users, but also to expand this project to everyone who really need help, IFS – Emmaus started a new humanitarian action.

The project is intended for third age persons in a state of social need, who are sick and mostly living in distant rural areas and who cannot provide a meal on their own, or reach the soup kitchen.

At the very beginning, this project included 10 users from the area of Srebrenica and Bratunac.

After they got a real insight into the situation, the number of users was increased. Now, 99 users from this area receive one meal per day. The users were selected in the cooperation with the Center for Social Work of Srebrenica and the Municipality of Srebrenica, and they received a great financial support from the Rotari Club Srebrenica.

With the aim to help as many people as possible, the project was extended to Gracanica and Doboj East, where humanitarians are currently visiting a total of 83 users.

“I live alone, I have no one. This food is really great.  My wife recently passed away and my daughters are married, they live far away. It is hard for me to cook, I’m not used to it. Thank you, it really means a lot to me,” said Dzemal H. from Milacevici.

“This warm meal means a lot to me. I am sick, I cannot cook. I have a small disability allowance, but I have to pay for medicines and utilities, and I have nothing left. It really means a lot when somebody thinks about poor and sick people,” said Mujesira M.
