Excerpt from the Tešanj local news broadcast 16.5.-19.5.2014. Written by: Husein Galijašević On the street I've met already well-known faces of the young scouts who were collecting aid for the flood victims. Bearing in mind that their squad leader is mr Mujo Pobrić, lector of the local TV station, I've asked of him to send me some basic information about their engagement concerning humanitarian aid. „The scouts, as a specific oraganisation, has got in its curriculum some elements like rescue, care, providing first aid, courier service etc. Headquarters squad made a decision to place their capacities engage in fund-raising activities and the provision of humanitarian assistance to vulnerable areas who have suffered a flood and then the landslides. With coordination action, which is carried out by the Scout Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina, we immediately responded and started collecting food, hygiene supplies, clothes, blankets, water. The counsel of the local community of Tešanj has authorised us for collecting aid in the areas of local community. The first contingent of aid was dispatched 17.5.2014. in Nemila, as one of the most endangered area. Our aid was transported by one van and one car, and handed to Scout group „Safet Ribić“ Nemila and local community Nemila. That aid was transmitted to Orahovica, Topčić polje and Željezno polje with the help of scouts with their backpacks on their backs and after that was directly handed to those who were cut off from all kinds of comunications. The second convoy was sent 18.5. in Nemila in the same scale as the previous day. Same hour, scouts have shipped aid on their back again for Orahovica and other places around Nemila. 19.5.2014., the same convoy with food, water, blankets and clothes was sent to Maglaj. The aid was splitted to a people of most vulnerable street that borders the river Bosna (I think that is the street „Ilijasa Smajlagića“) directly into the hands of endangered inhabitants. The aid was delivered by our young members and the board of squad. In entourage, as a host, was Muhamed Herceg, and municipal chief Mehmed Bradaric, who was at the same location, thanked as personally. We owe special thanks to the owners od Adze classic" firm, brothers Kantić, who were with us from the beginning of these activities and who there vehicle at our disposal, We continue our mission further on.We showed that scouts can be a very useful members of our community. Soon, more projects will be realised to help the population, with the help ouf our freind scouts from the region. We know this and we have to be a part of the community that will make the lifes ouf our dangered friends and neighbours easier. Thanks to all our members and residnents that joined in helping, especially to residents of local community Tesanj
