Landmine survivors meeting in Doboj.
Since 1992 more than 8.350 people have been killed or injured by landmines or UXO's. Ljubomir Blagojevic, 56, was injured in 1992 in a landmine incident while serving in the Army of Republika Srpska.
In Doboj, war veterans and landmine victims are playing volleyball in a club that Landmine Survivors Initiative employee Zoran Panic has founded.
Goran Goranović (40), far right, stepped on a landmine while serving in the army of Republika Srpske in 1992 and suffered a below-knee amputation of his right leg. After the end of the war Goran didn’t receive any financial or psychological support. He is living with his family in a very remote area in Doboj region, Republika Srpska. In 2002 Zoran Panic (far left), who is working for the Landmine Survivors Initiative (LSI) in Doboj, learned about his case and the initiative started to support Goran with a cultivator for agricultural use as well as weekly visits. Here the two are accompanied by Ramiz Bećirović from LSI Tuzla.
