Construction of the Home for the Elderly Persons “Hatidža Mehmedović” started on July 10, 2019, with the laying of the cornestone on the plot of six dunums, where it was previously built infirmary which is now located in the complex of the Home itself.
The realization of the construction of the complex lasted over three years and in that very turbulent period came the pandemic of the COVID-19 virus, which significantly slowed down the construction and in a short period of time completely closed all workplaces. However, the idea did not fade and immediately after the alleviation of all measures regarding movement the construction was activated, so the final decoration of the interior and exterior space has been completed at the end of October 2022, when it was ceremonial opening of the complex Home for the Elderly Persons.

What we are most proud of, because it is also proof of our continuous work in Srebrenica, is that the first employees of the Home for the Elderly Persons “Hatidža Mehmedović” are exactly our children, beneficiaries of the boarding accommodation in Potočari. They graduated secondary medical school in Srebrenica, and have completed their practical knowledge in our Reception Center “Duje” in Klokotnica.
This project will be of particular importance to mothers because now they know that they are not alone and that there is someone who will take care of them 24 hours a day.
The clinic will have a general practitioner who will constantly practice medicine, as well as other medical staff. A few equipped dispensaries such as: interventions, dental and gynecological, have been in function for some time on the initiative of doctors from Tuzla, Sarajevo, Gračanica and other cities, who perform specialist examinations on a voluntary basis for all people from Podrinje.
