Recent renewed floods continue to affect refugees left powerless from the May 2014 floods and cause further damage in the Maglaj and Jablanica areas. New floods and land-slides over the last couple days have closed major roadways and destroyed housing.
This week, with your help, MFR sent out Nokero solar-powered lightbulbs to the Red Cross Society of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and our partners at International Medical Corps, to provide Balkan families with light. The lightbulbs are scheduled to arrive in Sarajevo by the end of the week to aid families that have been cut from their power, or those for whom use of electricity in their households is still considered unsafe due to floods that affected in-house power distribution safety. Stay tuned for more updates.
