Bosnia and Serbia were recently hit with the worst flooding and natural catastrophe in centuries. Three months’ worth of rain fell on the region in three days last week, creating the worst floods since records began 120 years ago. Thousands of homes were destroyed and many lives were taken – authorities said on Saturday that 25 people have died, but say the toll could rise. Tens of thousands of home are left without drinking water and electricity.
From the air – almost a third of Bosnia, mostly its north-east corner, resembles a huge muddy lake, with houses, roads and rail lines submerged. Another risk of concern are landslides triggered by the floods – these raise the risk of injury and death from land mines left over from the Bosnian war in 1992-1995.
The founder of Health Fitness Revolution Samir Becic is asking all his friends and supporters to donate to this charitable cause in order to minimize the effects of the disastrous floods that have hit the Balkan region. With your help, lives can be saved, someone’s home can be repaired, and families can have a meal on the table.
The damage is being estimated to be in the billions. One thing that has been extremely impressive is how helpful people have been with each other!
