Day time center for disable people in Bosnia Erzegovina

Inclusion

Reception and integration of third-country nationals

Social assistance and welfare

For three years Molisesorriso OdV managed the day center in Mostar (Bosnia) which directly involved 15 severely disabled and economically very disadvantaged people. The centers offered to the user numerous activities from Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 16:00, including the lunch. Also more than one hundred disabled people, users of the "SUNCE" association of Mostar, with which we managed the center were indirectly involved. For 12 years, every year, 30/35 Molise families have welcomed as many minors residing in Bosnian institutions for about 45 days a year. From 2011 to 2019, every year, the Molisesorriso volunteers hosted a group of 6/8 disabled people residing in Bosnian institutions (SOS of Tuzla and "Dom Porodica of Zenica").

Molisesorriso OdV

Since 2007 we have been dealing with international solidarity (until 2019 temporary reception of Bosnian minors in the Molise Region). Volunteering has always been active in our region to help minors and their economically disadvantaged families.
