Mary’s Meals feeds children and young adults in a residential institution for children with learning and special needs.
Post conflict survival
Bosnia in Eastern Europe declared independence from the former Yugoslavia in 1992. This led to a devastating civil conflict which displaced around 2 million people and left the country’s infrastructure and economy in ruins.
Mary’s Meals supports the work of an institution which provides social care, education, work and training opportunities to children with disabilities and learning difficulties.
The conflict left the institution struggling to survive with insufficient food, heating, or medical supplies. Although the country is now at peace the state is still unable to fund this institution adequately. We offer help by providing a daily meal for the children.
Looking after the most vulnerable
Marijana was placed in care when she was two years old. She suffers from cerebral palsy and her parents were unable to take adequate care of her. Her home is now at Pazaric. She loves going out in her wheelchair to look at the flowers and trees and other children. The institution has become her home where she receives all the care and support she needs.
