Turkey contributes for mine victims assistance in Bosnia and Herzegovina

03.07.2015

On 2 July 2015 the Republic of Turkey and ITF Enhancing Human Security (ITF) signed a new agreement in the amount of 25,000 USD supporting mine action in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). The agreement on the new donation was signed by H.E. Ms. Serra Kaleli, Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey to Slovenia, and Ambassador Damjan Bergant, Director of ITF.

This Turkish contribution is intended for the provision of scholarships to 20 mine/unexploded ordnance (UXO) victims or mine victims family members from all over BiH. With this project ITF wishes to focus on the capabilities, rather than disabilities of mine/UXO victims, and assist them in finishing higher education process and thereby increasing the competitiveness of their employment opportunities.

Following last year’s contribution to mine action activities in Lebanon this is the second Turkish donation that will be implemented through ITF. ITF and Turkey share the hope that this partnership will continue and grow stronger in future.
