Partner NGO IFS-Emmaus needs support to deal with effects of flooding

21 May 2014

The Netherlands Helsinki Committee and the Center for International Legal Cooperation call for support to NHC’s partner organization IFS-Emmaus in Bosnia-Herzegovina to help deal with the consequences of the catastrophic flooding. At this moment IFS-Emmaus works on the preparation and distribution of basic emergency packages with food and other necessities to the most vulnerable areas and families. IFS-Emmaus itself has also been affected: its central office facilities in Doboj and the office in Srebrenica were flooded. The NHC and CILC have given a small financial contribution from their own reserves to IFS-Emmaus and NHC and CILC staff are giving additional contributions. However further funding for purchasing basic supplies, distributing them and starting reconstruction is highly necessary!

Please transfer your donation to bank account number 417808 of the Netherlands Helsinki Committee indicating ‘Watersnoodramp’.

IFS-Emmaus is a leading non-governmental and non-profit organisation with the aim of helping citizens in need working all over Bosnia-Herzegovina with three offices and 180 staff members. Over the years IFS-Emmaus assisted thousands of persons in need including refugees, displaced persons, illegal migrants and victims of human-trafficking. IFS-Emmaus is implementing project partner of the NHC in the project Promoting a victim centred approach in trafficking cases in Albania and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
