BY AMIR TUKULJ - There has been a remarkable outpouring of goodwill and concern from so many of our industry leaders, members and friends to help the Balkan Region that has been hit by the worst flooding recorded in history. Entire towns and villages in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, and Croatia have been wiped out by mudslides or floodwaters. Thousands of families and children are without clean water, medical care, and many schools have been destroyed, jeopardizing children’s access to education.
As most of you know, this region is close to our hearts, and many of our family and friends have been affected by this disaster. We are extremely grateful for the messages we have been receiving from those offering to help from all over the world, and we would like to take this opportunity to reach out to all of you who may be able to offer assistance. We know that many of you have been very generous and involved in other fundraising efforts, and we would like to ask you to consider donating to this cause as well.
To assist in the relief effort, we have elected to send the funds raised directly to support the rehabilitation of schools affected by the floods. The money raised will help education facilities (pre-school, primary and secondary schools), attended by 36,000 students, that have been partially or severely damaged by the floods in the affected geographical areas in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The money will positively impact children in the affected areas.

On behalf of all those affected by the flooding who are desperate for help, Thane International thanks you for your consideration and generosity! We assure you that any help for this worthwhile cause will be greatly appreciated for years to come.
