At the time there were many 'psycho-social' projects in Bosnia, and 'war trauma' and post-traumatic stress disorder were considered to be endemic. All the Bosnian people had been affected by the war to a lesser or greater extent, but Oxfam's policy was not to run clinical psycho-social projects, or to assume that people who had suffered very distressing experiences would necessarily become mentally ill. Instead Oxfam chose to work on facilitating the rebuilding of community structures and supporting traditional coping strategies.
Most ofthe children in the centre need help in all these areas, so we get into a group and all practise together. The children who cannot exercise on their own have another staff member or a parent supporting them. We also have a daily programme ofart, plasticine work, dancing, music, and so on for each child. I am really happy when I see the children progress, and when they don't want to go home because they enjoy the Centre so much. We never worked like this before the war.

It was the same story at Kreka too: the doctors and nurses were so busy that it was really difficult to get information. Finally at the paediatric clinic at the hospital they had all the names, but no addresses; for some there was just the name and then 'Tuzla' as the address. I didn't know what to do. I had all the names and there were a lot ofchildren, but I didn't know howto contact them. Next I went to the MZ['mjesto Koraci Nade: Steps ofHope zajednice': local council] and went through the register to find each individual address.
