Sitting Volleyball Club Doboj

Bosnia & Herzegovina, Republika Srpska, War

Almost two decades after the war in Bosnia & Herzegovina ended the country remains threatened by more than 120,000 landmines, buried in the ground along former frontlines.

Living next to mine fields in rural areas has been accepted as a fact of life. Since Bosnia’s three-year war ended in 1995 landmines have killed more than 600 people and injured about 1,700 individuals while the total number of victims including those killed or injured during the war is almost 10,000.

Due to the many handicapped men in DobojĀ a sitting volleyball club has been founded soon after the war. Besides war veterans the club also has members who suffered injuries from mine accidents after the war.
