TRIP ANNOUNCEMENT - British Delgation to Bosnia-Herzegovina

Brief:
The Cordoba Foundation will be leading a delegation of British Muslims to Bosnia-Herzegovina this year, between 6/7* July to 15 July. The trip is part of ongoing work by The Cordoba Foundation in Bosnia, namely raising awareness around the massacre in Srebrenica and supporting specific projects.

2012 is the last year before the month of Ramadan coincides with the annual Srebrenica memorial (11th July), thus making it difficult for people to travel for the next few years. Join us this year inshaAllah.
 
Aims:
To:
1.    Partake in the 11 July 2012 Srebrenica International Anniversary, where the janazah of hundreds of Bosnian Muslims will take place.
2.    Observe how Bosnian Muslims have responded and are recovering from the long years of war, destruction and ethnic-cleansing.
3.    Discuss and exchange ideas and thoughts about the Muslim experience in Europe and future scenarios.
4.    Support a specific fundraising projects.
5.    Raise greater awareness of the genocide.

Schedule:
The week-long trip (6/7-15 July) will include visits to important sites and meetings with prominent people, including the Grand Mufti, scholars, families of shuhada, teachers, community leaders, campaigners, families and orphans. The trip will also include recreational and sightseeing activities, including water-rafting and mountain-climbing.

A detailed scheduled will be provided closer to the time of the trip.
