Don't forsake me now, when my strength is failing -Psalm 71:9

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart

When the Bosnian war started in 1992, Kata (now 83), her daughter and grandson's lives were changed forever. They were taken to the Omarska concentration camp, where some of the worst atrocities of the war took place.

 

"I wasn't worried about what could happen to me, but I was terrified that the two of them would be badly beaten or executed. God sent a high-ranking officer, a former colleague of mine, to help us. We were selected for an ethnic group exchange and after two terrible months I came to live in Glamoc.

 

Looking after her ill son, Kata struggles to survive on her small pension. "Now I don't feel forgotten and abandoned. I have a daily hot lunch and new friends to share my joys and sorrows with. You, the Mission have enabled us to experience this friendship without borders. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
