Bosnia Migrant Fires Relief

 

The Lipa Emergency Camp in the City of Bihac in Northwestern Bosnia and Herzegovina was built in response to the influx of migrant families entering the region. Unfortunately, the camp never received proper water or electricity making it a dangerous residence.

A fire broke out in late December 2020 causing over 1,000 migrants to seek shelter on the main streets or makeshift forest camps nearby. No causalities or injuries have been reported till the time of this posting as these migrants battle the falling temperatures.

These migrants are between 14 and 30 years of age and are oringially from Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, India, Iraq, Morocco, Pakistan, Tunisia and other nations.

Helping Hand USA has launched its “Bosnia Migrant Fire Relief Fund” to provide immediate assistance through our vetted partner NGOs. Suffering migrants are receiving necessities such as food, water, and winter provisions. Immediate humanitarian assistance is needed for these individuals who have come from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

Your $30 donation will provide a Dignity Package for these individuals. Each package will contain winter essentials such as warm clothing, blankets, and meals.
