The catastrophic flooding in Bosnia and Serbia is finally getting attention in the news. Between the Red Cross, hundreds of courageous homeland volunteers and disaster relief professionals streaming in from all parts of the world Bosnia and Serbia seem to be getting the help they need, though there is as always a question of who gets EU funds and why. In Bosnia without much tangible infrastructure in place it sounds like the army was mobilized to contribute with search and rescue. Across the lines, Twitter and FB were full of photo’s of people (read: Bosniaks, Croats and Serbs) helping each other independent of personal differences. So it should be. Differences become ridiculous in calamity, the Balkans are no exception.
