The Project 'One Meal a Day' aims at securing one warm, cooked, healthy meal to the volunerable families in Srebrenica and Bratunac region. The meals are distributed (distribution to home addresses) to elderly, people with disabilities and very poor families with children. This way the problem of malnutrition and hunger is at least partly addressed. Within the project, at least 50 volunerable invidiuals will be receving one warm meal every day of the week, this amounts to approximately 1500 meals per month, for the duration of three months.
Financial resources will be spent on purchasing necessary food supplies, containers for food distribution and gasoline. All of those will be purchased exclusively locally (Z-Market and Robot market, Nestro Petrol), this way injecting the ever so needed money into the small local economy (with emphasis on small family-owned shops where possible).
The food will be cooked in the kitchen of EMAUS organization and distributed by their car (EMAUS workers will assign time for these activities apart from their regular work
EMAUS organization runs a boarding facility for the poorest and most volunerable children from Srebrenica and Bratunac. They provide accommodation, food and pedagogical care to few dozen school-age children who live at the Center Monday-Friday and go back to their homes for the weekend. Children are taken to school and assisted with learning. EMAUS within these activities has a big kitchen that can be used for our project.
Beneficiaries will be selected based on the long-standing field work carried out by RC Srebrenica and EMAUS which resulted in deep knowledge of families and individuals in need. Other organizations and local Centers for Social Work will also be contacted to make sure that the most volunerable individuals are not overlooked.
Apart from the obvious nutritional and humanitarian dimension of the activties, the project also has the more humane aspect- for many of the beneficiaries, this will be the only moment in the day that anyone comes to speak to them, see how they are feeling and care for them. It is very important to increase self-worth and sense of security among them.
