Bosnian town wants to help Japanese children

Bosnian town wants to help Japanese children

A small Bosnian town has offered to shelter children from disaster-stricken Japan in a sign of gratitude for assistance it received from the Asian country in years following Bosnia's 1992-95 war.
Bojan Dzuvelekovic, owner of the only hotel in the northern town of Ugljevik, said Tuesday they hoped to provide a place to stay to 50 children made homeless following Japan's earthquake and tsunami.
Dzuvelekovic said the local community would work hard to organize school and other activities for the children.
He says: "We know from experience how difficult it is when your country, society and family are destroyed."
