Bosnia

From 1992 to 2000

Context

The period from 1992 to 1995 saw the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina between Serbs, Croats and Bosniacs.  It began when the Serbian army attacked Bosnia-Herzegovina, just over a month after the latter had declared independence. The conflict claimed the lives of over 96,000 people, according to the research documentation center in Sarajevo.

Our action

Between 1992 and 1998, in Bosnia, our teams delivered an emergency response to victims of the conflict by distributing food, domestic hygiene and baby care packs, as well as winter clothing and educational materials. In 1994, they opened the Youth Centre in Sarajevo, which provided more than 500 children with access to sports and cultural activities. At the end of the war, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL helped to rebuild the country by implementing infrastructure rehabilitation programmes and support schemes for returning refugees.
