Blood and Vengeance: One Family's Story of the War in Bosnia

Blood and Vengeance: One Family's Story of the War in Bosnia
The events surrounding the genocide of eight thousand Bosniaks in 1995 by Bosnian Serbs is told through the odyssey of one Bosniak family, recounting the long and brutal history of the rival factions that claim the region.

Why do we work in Bosnia & Herzegovina?

Women for Women International exists because of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In 1993, Women for Women International Founder Zainab Salbi heard reports of wartime atrocities against women in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Compelled to act, she visited the country herself.
She spoke with women who'd been imprisoned in rape camps, endured daily mass rapes by soldiers and had lost their entire families to ethnic cleansing.
When she returned to the U.S., she founded Women for Women International to help Bosnian women.
Although the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina was more than 15 years ago, it toppled the economy and shattered lives, and women are still struggling today: to heal, to recover and to reunite.
With your help, Women for Women International in Bosnia and Herzegovina is working with women to rebuild their lives.
