26th June 2014: Medica Kosova invites to an opening of an exhibition

 

The same exhibition has also been shown in London (17th June 2014) at the "Global Summit to End sexual Violence in conflict" where not only Kosovo President Atifete Jahjaga has been present but aloso Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. 

 

Estimates suggest 20,000 women were raped during the Kosovo War (1998-1999). Many are still suffering from the consequences of the violence. Since 1999, Medica Kosova has been supporting survivors with comprehensive advice and the establishment of self-help groups. In 2011, the newly founded organisation Medica Gjakova also began to work in the region with a similar programme.

Medica Kosovo provides psychosocial counseling, health services, counseling, legal assistance and economic empowerment through income regeneration activities in the agricultural sector.
