DynCorp International team members in Sarajevo and Afghanistan worked together to provide support to flood victims in Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia. Tens of thousands have lost their homes due to the worst flooding to hit the area in recorded history. The catastrophic rains have left a third of Bosnia under water and landslides triggered by the floods also raised the risk of injury or death from land mines left over from Bosnia’s 1992-95 war.
Support from Sarajevo
Embodying the DI core value, “We Care,” DI team members from the Sarajevo office of Worldwide Recruiting & Staffing Services LLC (WRSS), a wholly owned subsidiary of DynCorp International, came together and collected food and hygiene items for the flooding victims. The team is coordinating donations through the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the Red Cross.
“We hire a notable number of people from Bosnia,” said Nermina Memic, International Recruiting Center manager, “the flooding is affecting many employees and their families.”
Team Members in Afghanistan Chip In
Team members at Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan have also raised funds for the flood victims. More than $1,000 was raised and delivered directly to the Red Cross in Bosnia by a member of the DI team.
