Day 1 in Sarajevo

As our first day in Sarajevo, Bosnia comes to a close, we are happy to report a successful day of travel and cultural exchange. We enjoyed breakfast in the Munich airport, lunch at a traditional Bosnian restaurant, and dinner at "Cinema City" with a group of welcoming Bosnian high school students.

When we first arrived in Bosnia we were greeted by Nela, a woman who is guiding us through our time in Sarajevo as a raconteur of personal and national history and leading us in our service with the JDC Women's Health Empowerment Program. Nela is the Program Director of WHEP and shared with us her deep personal connection to the wellbeing of women in this area.

Nela described WHEP as a program that both breaks taboos for chronic female illness and builds bridges by uniting the colliding cultures of this region. After a beautiful night downtown with our Bosnian peers, we are excited to begin our service tomorrow morning.
