"Long after the official cessation of hostilities, much of Bosnia and Herzegovina remains a casualty of war. Its people face daily poverty."
Long after the official cessation of hostilities, much of Bosnia and Herzegovina remains a casualty of war. Its people face daily poverty. The illiteracy rate approaches 30%. Access to medical care is limited. The murder of more than 200,000 people has left a generation of orphans. And many of those who perpetrated the chaos remain at large.
The Sanela Diana Jenkins Foundation for Bosnia and Herzegovina is committed to restoring dignity, prosperity, justice and hope to the country. The Foundation, established in the memory of Irnis Catic, pursues diplomatic, philanthropic, educational and legal initiatives that include:
- Rebuilding hospitals;
- Repairing roads;
- Advising Bosnian leaders;
- Funding schools;
- Donating modern medical equipment;
- Establishing an international justice center to bring war criminals to account.
Four years of war brought terror and bloodshed to Bosnia. Fourteen years of “peace” have left the country still struggling to recover. Even now, the future of Bosnia is threatened as European leaders consider undoing key tenets of the landmark Dayton Accord.
