We continue to receive many donations for flood relief in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Thank you for your generous response to this catastrophic situation. We have been entrusted to use these funds in a responsible way, to safeguard them from fraud, and to ensure that they will have maximum benefit for those impacted by the recent floods in our homeland.
As the immediate threat to loss of life has subsided, we are working in partnership with local contacts in BiH and with other groups in the United States to assess and evaluate where we can make the greatest long-term impact in response to the disastrous floods.
A portion of the funding we have received will go to emergency assistance. The bulk of donated resources will be focused on meeting long-term, sustainable needs. For example, we are exploring assistance in rebuilding and supplying health clinics in areas most affected by the floods.
We are very grateful for your significant support and patient understanding as we move with care and deliberation to provide the greatest level of assistance we can offer to our fellow citizens in Bosnia-Herzegovina. We will provide updates on planned actions as they are developed more fully.
