Following the recent situation in Bosnia, NASIMCO has launched an emergency appeal to provide aid to those affected by the floods in Bosnia.
Almost one-third of Bosnia has been affected by the worst flooding since modern records began. It has been confirmed that at least 35 people have died in Serbia and Bosnia and about a quarter of Bosnia-Herzegovina's four million people are without clean water.
After three months' worth of rain fell in just a few days, tens of thousands have fled their homes taking refuge in sports halls and schools. Approximately 1,000 people, including pregnant women, children and the elderly were evacuated from the region of Zeljezno Polje in central Bosnia, where hundreds of homes were destroyed in landslides.
NASIMCO understands that aid centres have been set up to distribute medicine, food, blankets and clothing. There is a great demand for basic necessities such as baby food, shovels, diapers, candles, clothing, medicine, bottled water and hygiene items.
Individuals wishing to make donations can do so by visiting our website at www.nasimco.org or through their local Jamaats.
