To date we have delivered 16 cows, 120 sheep, and a traktor to help farmers become self-sufficient. Buying a cow for CAD $1700 makes one family self-reliant. Please donate with a word "cow".
BCRA's 11% admin overhead is one of the lowest for charities in Canada. The national average is 40%!
Your money goes a long way with BCRA.
BCRA is rated as one of the best charities due to our low administrative overhead, which stands at only 11% (compared to an average of 40% for Canadian charities). This is because we are primarily a volunteer-driven organization.
Bosnian Canadian Relief Association is a Canadian charitable organization focused on humanitarian efforts in Bosnia and Herzegovina. BCRA was established in 1992, in response to the humanitarian disaster in a war-torn Bosnia. During the 1992 to 1995 war years, BCRA delivered financial and material aid to Bosnia, including 59 containers of humanitarian aid, food, clothing, medicine and medical equipment. With the conclusion of hostilities, we continued to aid thousands of people through the sponsorship of orphans (average 300 anually), funding of soup kitchens, school lunch programs, assisting in refugee return and reconstruction efforts, and various sustainable projects for farmers in Bosnia.
BCRA has also helped with global charity projects including help for Indonesia following the 2004 tsunami, Pakistan after the 2005 Kashmir earthquake, Gaza humanitarian disaster in January 2009, support for Syrian refugees in Turkey in 2018, and building of wells in Burkina Faso.
Impoverished people of Bosnia and Herzegovina still need our assistance, and BCRA is answering their plea for help. We invite you to lend a helping hand, join BCRA as a volunteer, or help the people in need with your donation today.
