International help to Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Croatia urgently needed!

Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Croatia have experienced floods since last week, the worst that the region has known since they began keeping records 120 years ago. In Bosnia, more than 1 million people live in the affected areas.

About 500,000 people have left their homes and at least 95,000 homes are without power. Over 1 million people have been cut off from clean water supplies. In Serbia, tens of thousands of people have lost everything.

As many as 30,000 people have been evacuated to collective centers, and most 50 people have died. Landslides have moved land mines leftover from the wars in the 20th century, estimated to be as many as 120,000. The floods hit Croatia on Monday; 15,000 people have been evacuated, and unfortunately there have been two confirmed deaths. More about the catastrophe and its implications can be found on Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Southeast_Europe_floods

Knowing that all of these ex-Yugoslavian republics still haven't recovered from recent wars, and this catastrophe made damages over a billion euros, it is essential to help to the people of afflicted countries.
