Bosnia: Construction of a house for children in Vares

The Franciscans sisters are present in Vares since 1938. In 2004 they got the former school and kindergarten building back from the state. The state of the house was catastrophic, the building could not be redeveloped any more. The complete costs for the new building were taken over from Renovabis. The costs for the necessary furniture were carried to a large part by the Korff foundation.

After the completion the facility devolved to the Franciscans sisters again, who furthermore maintain the home with its 32 places. The children who are taken up still suffer from the war and its late results. The care of the four child groups is done by teams which are made up of sisters, social workers and psychologists.
