Kosovo

The young state is fighting challenges on several fronts. Its independence from Serbia, declared in 2008, is still not universally recognized. Political instability hinders trade and contributes to significant unemployment and abject poverty - both scars of the Kosovo war that lasted until 1999.

MORE THAN JUST RELIEF SUPPLIES
In the meantime, six second-hand stores have been established in Kosovo. Our local partner divides our relief supplies according to necessities - part is given directly to those in need, and the other part is supplied to these stores. The stores create jobs and finance various local projects, such as engagement among the Roma or the support of needy families with food and hygiene products.
KIDSCAMP: FRUITOPIA
»The goal of Fruitopia is to teach kids the importance of living in unity despite differences. We are on the imaginary island of Fruitopia for the whole week and playfully deal with conflict behavior, cultural differences and the true peacemaker: Jesus.«
