Tuzlanska Amica

The association “Tuzlanska Amica” is a non-governmental organisation based in Tuzla, a city in the north-eastern part of Bosnia Herzegovina. Officially registered in 1996, its work started in 1992 with the aim of easing the suffering of a growing number of women and children arriving from the concentration camps, from the areas concerned with ethnic cleansing and fleeing from the city of Srebrenica. In 1993, Tuzlanska Amica started receiving support from the women volunteers of  “Spazio Pubblico di donne” (Public Space of Women) of Bologna and later on from a growing number of Italian associations, thus achieving a remarkable expansion of its engagement also outside Tuzla. Today, two "mobile teams" are able to intervene also in the most abandoned areas in a multidisciplinary way, guaranteeing medical, psychological and first aid assistance to families in need.
Tuzlanska Amica is directed by Irfanka Pašagić, neuropsychiatrist originary from Srebrenica, who arrived in Tuzla as a refugee in 1992. Psychologists, pedagogists, social assistants and - if necessary - also legal consultants give their contribution to the association. Furthermore, the Tuzlanska Amica serves as a Centre for documentation and research on the condition of women and promotes public initiatives and seminars in order to support dialogue, understanding and tolerance between persons of all nationalities.
For her engagement, in 2005 Irfanka Pašagić received the International Award of the Alexander Langer Foundation, an award that from 1997 has been assigned to persons actively working for freedom, democracy, justice and together living.
