Call for action published in “Schweizer Familie”, issue 51/2003
In 2003, the Swiss magazine “Schweizer Familie” called on readers to donate money for
the survivors of the massacre in Srebrenica, Bosnia. Zurich-based journalist Peter Fuerst
asked the Committee to support the project. The Board immediately decided to help,
especially because Peter Fuerst could guarantee that the money would be distributed to
people who needed it most. A total of 140,000 Euros was collected. Helping people help
themselves: recipients were provided with food, goats, sheep, cattle, and small farming equipment.
