Helping Children
Our aim is to to try and help about 50 poor families in our project, guaranteeing schooling, medicines , medical treatment, university grants and food on the table.

Unfortunately we have a shortage of donators this year and do not want any of our children to feel abandoned. Some examples are: one family with four children, one of whom is borne without arms and one short leg. The father is unemployed and the mother needs money to travel to and from the hospital for treatment etc.

Another family, without a father, lives near Srebrenica, with 7 children, of which 6 stopped going to school after finishing elementary school at 14 years, simply because they could not afford the bus.
We want the youngest boy to have a better future and helps them with school expenses.

Another young boy was born a dwarf. The father is sick and just does odd jobs. The mother has the opportunity to take him to Zagreb to do a serious operation on the back but she does not have the money for the operation. We try to contribute to the operation.

A young girl in Srebrenica, the oldest of six children shows great promise at school. She wants to study medicine and go to University. We can help to make this to happen.

With your help, we can continue to work on achieving these goals. We will continue to update you on the stories from these communities throughout the crowdfunding period!

Founder of Association

My name is Jennifer Stone-Wigg, born 27th march, 1942.I was born in England. Due to the death of my father I had to leave college and do an apprenticeship in a steel firm. After passing necessary exams I was invited to Switzerland to finish my studies with ABB (Brown Boveri). I then moved to Lugano where I was employed in a bank for 30 years. After this I became involved with Bosnia, and we delivered about 50 lorries of goods. We also helped schools, such as putting in a water tank, chemistry lab and library. We supplied schools with about 100 computers. We brought 14 war paraplegics with medical staff to Switzerland for check-ups and a holiday. We invited 24 children with only one parent to Switzerland for a holiday. We are distributing food packets and supporting about 100 poor and sick children with economic assistance. We also buy sandwiches for children who are unable to afford them in various schools.
