We help people who are affected by war and its aftermath,

UK work - we help veterans of the armed forces and their families who are affected by their service experiences including PTSD and emotional health .We offer free complementary therapies to them to help support any other help they're getting, and to help them relax, sleep, deal with panic attacks and hopefully help them on their path to recovery. We collaborate with other organisations and attend support groups from Combat Stress, Royal British Legion, Stoll Housing, West London Mission, Fabcamps amongst others.

Internationally we work in Sarajevo, Bosnia, where we began helping as the Balkan War ended in 1996, we have a clinic base in the city where we work 6 months of the year offering help to the survivors of the war, rape and concentration camps, torture, displacement and loss of many family members. Our volunteers raise funds to travel over to give 2 weeks work Complementary Therapies for us.


We self fund and manage and train our volunteers. We are run by volunteers who give their time except for our Treasurer who is self employed and is paid a minimum wage for hrs worked.

We work with other larger funded organisations in the UK where we support them working with veterans at their support groups and drop-ins and also housing centres.

We work in the UK at Bosnian Network UK which are the refugees who are now housed and settled in UK but still have links back home or have lost everything.

In Sarajevo we work with the Concentration Camp Union, Mothers of Srebrenica, Women Victims of War and Civil War Victims.
