Hello, our names are Matilde Chambel and Salvador Fezas Vital and we are currently living in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and we've been working with the #NGO
Collective Aid is run by a flexible core team of long-term #volunteers
, supported by a dynamic and ever-changing group of short-term volunteers from all around the globe in order to bring dignity and care to refugees and other displaced people across Europe.
Its mission is to observe and act, to always be ready to fill the gaps left by other aid actors, to collaborate with anyone who shares our aim of making life better for people living as #refugees
BiH has become a transit route for migrants heading towards western Europe since early 2018. Around 8 000 #migrants
are currently present in the country, mainly originating from southern Asia and the Middle East. Reception capacities were expanded in 2018, using EU funds, but remain insufficient.
Today, Collective Aid Sarajevo has been working on the distribution of non-food items (#NFI)
across BiH and in several refugee and migrant camps. However, the number of arrivals is increasing and it’s very hard to be able to provide aid to everyone effectively. On another hand, temperatures are currently very low and the need for essential winter items is more needed than ever.
This is why we need your #help
! With just 1€, you’ll be able to provide two warm winter hats to people that are currently on the move. All the donations provided by this fundraising will be directed into projects ran by Collective Aid Sarajevo.
