Volunteer in the Balkans

ZaMir:Peace work in the Warzone

Enters Internet. Early in 1991, International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) proposed a "Trust Link" between the conflicting sides in ex-Yugoslav war. When the anti-war and human rights groups of former Yugoslavia began to organise, they had found it impossible to coordinate their activities due to immense communication difficulties.

"Er is in Italië een actieve gemeenschap die vluchtelingen uit voormalig Joegoslavië helpt. Velen van hen zijn on line en ik beschik via mijn e-mail-contacten over hun telefoonnummers. Curtis was in Ancona op een moment dat daar heel veel Bosnische vluchtelingen aankwamen. Hij wist alleen niet in welk hotel ze zaten en vroeg via een fax naar Den Bosch om informatie. Enkele telefoontjes vanuit Den Bosch met de contacten in Italië hielpen niet alleen Curtis; sommige vluchtelingen in de Willem I kazerne kwamen zo eindelijk weer in contact met familieleden, die in Ancona terecht waren gekomen. Mensen stonden te huilen aan de telefoon."
