MIRACLES IN BOSNIA…
LA FONDATION MIRACLES SUISSE
The Swiss Foundation of Miracles was established in Geneva in 2008 with the sole purpose of raising funds for The Miracles Centre for Prosthesis and Care in Mostar, BiH. This it does through the organisation of major fundraising events taking place in Geneva every two years.
La Fondation was founded by Miracles’ Chair, Marie-Antoinette Pereire with her long-standing friend, Ingrid Tissot, acting as Secretary and Pierre-Laurent Bel as Vice-President.
In the Winter of l992/3 at the age of 20, Nino was a soldier on the front line where his legs literally froze. His brother carried him for miles to find medical help but it was too late and he lost both his legs.
The Late Marc Pereire visited the Centre in 2014, the year before he died. This is what he wrote ....
While I was visiting the Miracles’ Centre something beautiful happened: A gentleman who had been given two legs below the knee found out we were in town and wanted to come and say thank-you. When I walked into the waiting room, he got up without a word, took me in his arms, and made me dance. It lasted a few minutes but I cannot express how much it demonstrated for me the validity of what we are doing there. Let’s hope we can make many more people dance!
Please help Miracles to realise that hope!
