WOMEN Partner: BOSFAM (Bosnian Family)
BOSFAM was founded in 1994 during the Bosnian War by Beba Hadzic, the former head of the Srebrenica primary school. Beba's goal was to provide a shelter for refugee women in Eastern Bosnia, regardless of their age, religion, ethnic background, or education. The organization’s name is derived from BOSnian FAMily. BOSFAM operates on the principles of humaneness, impartiality, independence, and voluntarism. It is based in the Bosnian town of Tuzla and has a branch in Srebrenica. BOSFAM began producing memorial quilts in 2006 to commemorate those who died in the massacre, with help from AP. Eleven of the quilts were shown on July 11, 2015 - the 20th anniversary of the massacre.
