The distribution of financial scholarships for 1,800 orphans throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina has officially ended today. Thanks to foreign donors, IFS-EMMAUS organized distributions this January as well, which took place at 25 locations throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina. In addition to the donors, this is an opportunity to thank all the hosts who donated their premises only in order to facilitate registration, photography and protocol of distribution of scholarships. We thank the mothers and children who respected all the prominent preventive measures of protection due to the current epidemiological situation as well as all individuals who contributed to the easiest possible distribution on their own way, made it easier for our employees who had their hands full and also made this important job as easy as possible.
The implementation of the project “Sponsorship of children without one or both parents – orphans” began in 2012.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country with a large number of orphans. In the post-war period until today, there is a large number of orphans who lost their parents through serious illnesses, traffic and other accidents and often left their families without any financial income, and now children live in very difficult living conditions.
In addition to regular scholarships for children, we continuously organize gatherings and distribution of school supplies and backpacks, food packages for socially vulnerable families and many other material support for these children, such as the distribution of firewood and white goods.
The continuity of such a project is also the best invitation to all who can get involve and help so that, if not all, then at least the vast majority of orphans are provided by some form of help.
