…you’ve been walking in the snowy forest for 15 days, you have nothing left to eat and suddenly you hear voices. You quickly duck into your hiding place and hold your breath so that no one discovers you…
…but then Zlatan Kovačević from SOS Bihac hobbles
towards you and you only feel more relief. He means well with you, gives you water and a muesli bar as a little refreshment. You are grateful for this human gesture.
Zlatan himself lost a leg during the Bosnian war more than 30 years ago. But this handicap does not stop him from helping. On the contrary: He walks through the snow-covered terrain on crutches to help people in need.
During an aid patrol, Zlatan Kovačević took us on the arduous journey along the escape route of many refugees in Bosnia. We get a small impression of what these people have to go through in order to finally – with a lot of luck – be able to cross the border to Europe. We are deeply affected and saddened that a border can mean such a big difference between people… Zlatan puts it in a nutshell: “I don’t help refugees, I just help people.” Good that there are people like Zlatan. Thanks.
