Gegic stated that that most people he met narrated to him loses they encountered during the violence.

“I am deeply saddened by horrendous stories of violence and suffering. Oxfam has spared no efforts from the very onset of the crisis to provide lifesaving assistance to those most in need and I am very glad that our team has managed to organise and deliver an impressive support in such a short period of time,” added Zlatko.
