We are excited to announce that NEFBiH will be continuing our annual tradition and will be organizing a team walk this year! While we were unable to join the recent virtual Walk for Hunger event, we would like to capture the spirit of the traditional event by raising funds to support the incredible work of an organization preparing meals for those in need. All donations and proceeds from the registration will be made directly to Udruženje Optimisti, a soup kitchen in Prijedor, Bosnia that serves more than 300 meals daily, seven days a week. Notably, they have been working throughout the pandemic to ensure that their community members have been able to access warm meals, which has been increasingly important as extremely scarce options have been available throughout quarantine periods.
In addition to financially supporting this cause, we would also like this walk to serve as an opportunity to bring together our local community after a long year of social distancing and isolation in a safe, outdoor setting. Organizing our annual walk is exceptionally meaningful for our team, as we are able to further our commitment to helping people in need while also honoring all of the individuals around the world that have survived, or are currently experiencing, human rights abuses.
We would be honored if you register as a member of our team or make a small contribution to help us achieve our fundraising goal this year. Please join us to enjoy the beautiful scenery in Nahant and to support the fight against hunger in Bosnia!
