July 2016
Back to Bosnia, 20 years after the war.

We were only around twenty years old when we served during the war in Bosnia. A conflict that costed the lives of so many people.

It really is with mixed feelings that I look back on what we did and what we were part of. I served in Bosnia between 1994 and 1996. We were first deployed with UNPROFOR, But later changed are blue helmets to become a Nato force, IFOR. The Nato intervention in Bosnia was the beginning of series of Nato campaigns in the world. A new era of military solutions that I find hard to motivate.

It feels very good however to go back without guns this time. MFP is not the biggest organization but we can still make a big difference for the children that we reach. To look these children in their eyes, knowing that there lives will be a little bit better, makes it worth every effort. Peace!

Mopeds for peace is a nonprofit project that raises money for charity. In 2016 we ride to Tuzla in Bosnia to raise money for children.

The Children we left behind when our tour ended will Always stay in our memories.

We have two different organizations to support in MFP 2016, Koraci Nade and Gymnastics Club Tuzla.

Jasmina Krivosija

Gustav and Koraci Nade Manager Jasmina Krivosija, Nov 2015.

Koraci Nade is a day center for handicapped children. It is a Non Government Organization that has helped children for twenty years.

They  do a wonderful job with helping children but they are dependent on donors to run their operation and the lack of funding makes it a struggle.

Hundreds of children are dependent on this organization. Without Koraci Nade, these children would suffer and be left without hope.

In 2016 we will ride to help Koraci Nade continue their important work and contribute as much as we can to the children of Tuzla.

GCT

The Gymnastics Club Tuzla (Gimnasticki klub Tuzla) provides gymnastics training for approximately 140 children on two locations in Tuzla. After the war ended in 1995 a group of enthusiastic former gymnasts and fans of the sport have been working hard to revive the sport of gymnastics in Tuzla and provide physical training to children of different ages. Today children of different nationalities and ethnicities train together. Assistant professor Almir Atikovic describes how parents of children currently in training fought on opposite sides during the war. Today their children are best friends and training partners.

Most of the clubs equipment is 40-50 years old and much of it is totally worn out. Our aim is to bring the club some much needed equipment. This will enable them to provide safe gymnastics training and help children to develop physically as well as socially.

In order to attain this goal Mopeds For Peace cooperates with the Swedish Gymnastics Federation of the eastern region
(Gymnastikförbundet Öst).

- Join the ride!
