As the Balkan tragedy continued in Kosovo, we expanded our relief efforts to include 1,200 Kosovo refugees who were living in an abandoned and unheated soft-drink factory outside Sarajevo. These people, most of whom made their way into Bosnia through the rugged mountains, had no place to go, as no other countries would accept them. One mother, who together with her six children had fled into the mountains after their home was burned, and had been living there for six months, particularly touched our hearts!
We visited this camp regularly, delivering humanitarian aid gathered from all over Europe. These people were very thankful for anything we could bring. Shoes, socks and even toothbrushes were much appreciated! We made many friends in this camp who counted on us and anxiously looked forward to our every visit.
