Hvala svima koji su došli sinoć na predivan događaj. Jedan od najljepših trenutaka je bio kad mi je, nakon informativne prezentacije o izbjegličkoj situaciji i radu BAB-a u BiH, prišla mlada žena i upitala:”Sjećaš li se mene? Ja sam jedna od volontera koja je, kad si nas u Sarajevu pozvao da izgradimo “Prostor za ljude” u Hrasnici, došla i pomogla.” Hvala ženama W.E. na trudu da naprave događaj potpuno drugačiji od svega što smo radili do sad.
Thankyou to everyone who came last night to the lovely event. One of the nicest moments was when after the information presentation about the refugee situation and what work BAB is doing in BiH a young woman came up to me and said “Do you remember me? I am one of the volunteers who when you did call outs for help In Sarajevo to build the “Peoples Place and Community Space in Hrasnica I came and helped”. Thanks to the women of W.E for coming together and creating an event completely different to anything we have done before.

Massive thanks (28.07.2018)
BAB wants to thanks everyone involved and who came to our Berlin soli/info event last night. It was truly an international event. Special thanks to Ale Senso (Italian), Evev (Israeli), the amazing Greek photographer Vasili Pham, the DJ Loutra (Italian), the great musicians Daniel Marques (Brazilian), Finn Dorian, (?) Stephan Herz (German) and La Gatta for delicious food all the way from Italy. We raised some money but also may have built some more networks to help the refugees this winter and change systems.
Readings of eye witness accounts, poems and short stories about the refugee and immigrant crisis in BiH.
Also the Peoples Place and Community Space in Sarajevo is still running with more and more refugees and local community using it.
