Repair and Reconstruction of Centres for Disabled Children

Children with disabilities remain one of the most vulnerable populations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the country suffers from a lack of support services directly aimed at this group. Therefore Centres for Disabled Children can provide children and young people with disabilities the opportunity the maximize their potential to learn, provide supportive environments in which to enjoy educational and recreational activities, as well as providing much needed respite for families. In this context, the main objective of the project was to assist in ensuring that centres for children with disabilities that had been damaged in the floods of 2014 are operating at full capacity.

The project repaired and reconstructed centres for children with disabilities that had been damaged in the floods of May 2014, in order to ensure that these centres can fully resume or commence activities, and also enhance the existing structures, such as through the provision of thermal insulation, in order to reduce costs to be incurred by the relevant authorities in the future. Through these actions the project aimed at ensuring the adequate provision of the day-care support for children with disabilities, through construction and infrastructure interventions aimed at specialized facilities affected by floods and landslides.
