Being present in communities and working on empowerment of landmine survivors and their families, we often find our beneficiaries who openly express their concern for the future and the existence of other vulnerable members of their communities. Most of our beneficiaries expressed their readiness for more active participation in providing support for those in need and we encourage them to do so, by defining means and beneficiaries of their support.
Redzib Kadric, one of our beneficiaries, lives with his wife and two children in Breza (central B&H). He is war veteran and bellow-knee amputee who, upon successful completion of the LSI greenhouse production training, organized few years ago, started his own vegetable production in greenhouse. Encouraged with the good results of his work and the LSI support, Redzib decided to share 189 kilos of different vegetables with the local center for children without parental care in Mojmilo (Novo Sarajevo). Modest, as he is, Redzib finds this initiative to be his personal satisfaction and an opportunity to live again from results of his work and to help others in need.

Negotiations on the first Arms Trade Treaty, held at the United Nations in New York, were concluded last weekend and failed to reach an agreement. After several weeks of negotiations and just few hours prior to the conclusion of the conference, the USA, Russia and several other countries asked additional time for their decision.
The ATT conference started beginning of July this year and it was supposed to be adopted by consensus of 193 States Parties to the UN.
In spite of the fact that the consensus to adopt the treaty was not reached, significant progress was achieved in creating a momentum for the adoption of an international and legally-binding treaty to bring the arms trade under control throughout the world. It remains to attempt reaching an agreement prior to the meeting of the UN General Assembly in the fall, thus creating conditions to adopt the Arms Trade Treaty.
