EU and UNHCR visit displaced families most in need of assistance in eastern BiH

 

Almost one year after the Donor Conference in Sarajevo, UNHCR Representative, Andrew Mayne, and the Head of the European Union Delegation to Bosnia and Herzegovina and European Union Special Representative, Ambassador Peter Sorensen, today visited vulnerable returnee and internally displaced persons most in need of assistance in eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The delegation met with returnee families in the Kozici and Kukavice communities in the Rogatica area, and a returnee in Gornji Gradac in Novo Goradze, before visiting the Balkan I Collective Centre in Gorazde and the Splaviste construction site where two social housing facilities are rapidly taking shape to replace the recently demolished dilapidated shelters that existed on the site. The German government is funding the work at Splaviste through UNHCR and its partner Catholic Relief Services.
