Senka - Bosnia and Herzegovina

“I talk with them, listen to what they’re saying and sometimes all they need is to be heard.”

For the last 18 months Senka, a retired teacher and volunteer, has been helping vulnerable migrants staying in Una-Sana Canton.

“I understand how difficult it is for them and I try to help them to get in touch with their families.” With experience of the Yugoslav Wars, the 70-year-old understands people who are forced to leave their homes.

Senka has been a volunteer for more than 30 years. “Volunteering is my lifestyle. Through it, I’ve experienced many happy as well as many sad moments and I'm grateful for all of them.”
