A personal message from Jenny:

"I have just been watching the 75th anniversary of D day on televison. Watching these brave veterans who did so much in contributing to world peace. The war in Bosnia was not so different, but on a much smaller scale, thousands of Muslims tortured and killed for ethnic cleansing. In Bosnia, many families, who are not lucky enough to have relatives abroad helping them economically and it is these families we are trying to help. Children who are bedridden, children who need to do expensive treatments out of Bosnia, children who would love to continue studying but have no money for bus fares. We are helping a school where we provide sandwiches and drinks for a whole school year for children who are not able to afford anything to eat. Many families have no bathrooms and find it difficult to provide a healthy meal for their children each day. We have about 100 children needing our help and that is why I beg you to continue helping us." Jennifer Stone-Wigg

13 Days to go!

We have 13 days to go and Jenny is as committed as ever to help additionally 50 children in June as part of her program that has been running since the last year of the war. She has lost some funding. An Italian family run company helped her for several years, but recently started helping a local organisation as due to events in their home region.
Next week, she is back in Sarajevo for the final period of this campaign- I urge you to help this initiative if you can!
13 Days to go!

Last 3 weeks of Jenny's campaign.

Jenny has been undergoing surgery during last week and is recovering nicely in Lugano, her home town.

Now, we will have to help her by supporting her campaign- she is committed to help 50 more children in June, but have lost some funding. An Italian family run company helped her for several years, but recently started helping a local organisation as due to events in their home region.

Here is the description of the family as described by Jenny:

This family fights to survive. At one time they were all living with the grandmother in a wooden shack with three open rooms including kitchen and without bathroom. Then it was burnt down and the Municipality helped them. One son was given a two room flat next to the old house. He has four children, a boy of 15, a boy of 13, a boy of 7 and a baby of 2 years

They build another house for the grandmother with two rooms. One daughter and her daughter of 15 also live with them. The father left them. Upstairs, the grandmother and her son lives with his daughter. The wife abandoned them and he brings up the daughter who is eight years old. They have some land and grow their vegetables but their financial situation is difficult.

Please support this campaign with what you can. Please share this post.
Last 3 weeks of Jenny's campaign.
Mother and daughter gives flowers from their garden to Jenny who visited them. This was two weeks ago, just before Jenny took the bus back to Lugano for her surgery. We look forward to her return, for the end of this campaign!

Another family benefitting from Jenny's help

The living conditions of this family is not good, but still better than in the past. The mother was abandoned by her husband with three children, a boy of 5, a boy of 4, a boy of 3. Unable to pay the rent, she was thrown out her house. The children were badly beaten by their father and the boy of four cannot see well due to the father beating him on the head early on in his life. The eldest son has a hair lip and is going to be operated the day after our visit. The children appear "stressed" and hard to manage. Luckily, the mother met her new husband and they now have an eight month baby together. The new husband has taken over the responsibility of a father. They have no bathroom but have running water. At the moment they have no income only what the husband earns doing odd jobs.
