Occupational Therapy for Disabled Adults

Friends second-hand clothes shop run by Our Kids Foundation, Mostar.
The Friends second-hand clothes shop, co-financed by Our Kids Foundation UK, Vara Barn Sweden and Naša Djeca Bosnia and Herzegovina, provides occupational therapy for adults with special needs.

The “Friends” second-hand clothes shop located in Mostar provides supervised work for adults with special needs who have grown up within the state care system and need ongoing assistance.

Donations of second-hand clothing are supplied by Vara Barn which is a registered non-profit organisation in Sweden, and the project is co-financed by Our Kids UK, Vara Barn Sweden and Naša Djeca Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Received donations of clothing, footwear, work accessories and hygiene products are distributed to beneficiaries of Our Kids projects and the surplus items are then sold in the shop to customers in Mostar.

As well as providing occupational therapy for the beneficiaries, the project also enables the social integration of vulnerable adults who may otherwise be excluded, and helps to promote positive attitudes towards disabled people in the local community.
