Project Description

Flash floods in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina in December of 2010 led 40,000 people to be evacuated from their homes. UNHCR responded to this by providing food and non-food items, including blankets, mattresses, jerry cans, firewood and stoves, to some 2,400 flood victims with the help of partners on the ground. The primary objective of the project is to assist the tens of thousand of people affected by the worst floods to hit Bosnia and Herzegovina in decades. Assistance comes through provision of food and non-food items. As of January 2011, food and non-food items, including blankets, mattresses, jerry cans, firewood and stoves, were provided to some 2,400 flood victims in Bosnia and Herzegovina with the help of partners on the ground.
