THE STORY:

It is estimated that 5,000 people in Sarajevo, with mental disabilities ranging from mild to severe, are denied opportunities to go outdoors, to be contributing members of society, to realize their true personal potential, their self-worth.

The purpose of this project is to build a day center for use by persons with intellectual disabilities in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The project site is www.sumero.ba

Donate directly or through the CrowdRise.

Let's build the community to support them for the long haul!

 

Read this:

It is estimated that there are approximately 5,000 persons in the population of the greater Sarajevo area with mental disabilities, ranging from mild to severe.

In ex-Yugoslavia social assistance to these individuals was reasonably good. However, since the breakup of the country and especially as a result of the damage to facilities and resources caused by the war of the early nineties, the mentally disabled have received very little support from government agencies. Sadly, as a result, most of these individuals end up depending entirely on the care of their immediate families, often alone and confined to a room in an apartment day in and day out, since their caregivers must go to work.

The educational system in general is not equipped to provide them with opportunities for learning, and there are no public institutions dedicated to the education of persons with mental disabilities, again due to a lack of budgetary resources.

Therefore, even those with less severe mental disabilities are denied the opportunity to realize their true personal potential, their self-worth, and be contributing members of society.
