Due to the floods, not only buildings and streets in Bosnia are flooded but, on top of that, the drinking water is polluted.

THW-water experts on their way to Bosnia

The flood disaster in the Balkan continues; the affected states still depend on international help. First, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia asked the European partners for lifeboats, then, for high-performance pumps, which, among other suppliers, were provided by THW. Now it is drinking water that is urgently required.

Help for the Balkan: start of pump works in Bosnia

For days, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina have suffered from devastating floods. A THW-team of about 20 experts from Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and the Saarland has now arrived in Bosnia and is going to start its work. Meanwhile, two further units from Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg are on their way to the disaster areas in the Balkan.
