The non-governmental organization Muslim Aid Association in Bosnia and Herzegovina is celebrating 15 years of successful work this year. We spoke with Executive Director Edina Šehić Saliji about past work, implemented projects and plans for further work.
Because of the pandemic, how we celebrate and mark even the most sacred of festivals has been far from normal by account of social restrictions. Muslim families relied on video calls and other forms of communication to stay connected to mark Eid ul-Adha in 2020/21 and, while it was great that we could at least see our loved ones in some form at the height of a global pandemic, it just wasn’t the same.
Here at Muslim Aid, we’d like to thank our donors for supporting and believing in us this Ramadan. The number of Zakat and Sadaqah donations that we received was overwhelming, and we’re always touched by the level of trust that our supporters have for us.
