Last year, I profiled Bosfam, a Tuzla based NGO. The majority of Bosfam's clients are female survivors from Srebrenica, and Bosfam offers them an opportunity to meet, share their stories, all while knitting beautiful handicrafts and selling their crafts to earn money to support themselves and their families.
Recently, Bosfam had embarked on a new project, The Srebrenica Memorial Quilt.
According to Bosfam's website, "The quilt currently comprises 20 panels, each commemorating
a victim of the 1995 Srebrenica massacre. Families who lost
relatives are being invited to commission new panels. As new
panels are added to the quilt, the quilt will grow in size,
keep the memory of the massacre alive and used to make the
case for more material and emotional support for Srebrenica
