Bosnia Winter Appeal

Bosnia, our closest Muslim European neighbours, with a significant freezing contrast in winter months. As we adjust to wind, rain and snow Bosnia is already experiencing sub-zero freezing temperatures, frost and snow. So how does this leave a family living in rural Bosnia?

Timber is everywhere in Bosnia but it is expensive. Widows and elderly struggle to get through the winter with a scarce supply of firewood, causing people to wash with freezing cold water and to shiver under blankets. Many rural houses in Bosnia have no double glazing, resulting in icicles inside of houses, a reality long forgotten in the UK. For the elderly in Bosnia and young children, trying to get through the winter can shave years off of their lives, for those lucky enough to find themselves in a freezing house.

Every year we hear of accounts of people freezing to death inside cold uninsulated tents, many of them are babies and young children. The displaced can simply not afford accommodation to protect them from freezing temperatures throughout winter, leaving them vulnerable out in the cold. Each year, valuable lives are lost due to these preventable causes through freezing conditions.
