Human Housing for Old and Homeless War Victims

Since the war in Bosnia started in 1992, a number of old and homeless war victims are living in a school building in the village of Fakovići near Srebrenica. Their houses were burned down, and they are too poor to rebuild them. Only a minor part of the building is used by the local primary school. Until 2005, the elderly people lived in oversized, run-down classrooms that were almost impossible to heat. There was no running water or rest rooms in the building.

Pharos has renovated a part of the building. Now ten elderly people are living in cosy rooms and share a bathroom, toilets, a kitchen and a recreation room.
