December 3rd, which is marked as the International Day of People with Disabilities, aims to highlight once again the importance of promoting the rights, needs and position of persons with disabilities, along with creating a society of equal opportunities.

In Bosnia and Herzegovina, there are 1,766 mine victims, out of which 617 with fatal outcome.

Every day, mine victims are facing numerous problems and various challenges, primarily relating to the to the health care and medical rehabilitation, and the right to receive quality and functional prosthetics.
