The Kosovan Ministry of Justice awards grants to licensed social organisations in Kosovo. We applied for support for our Psychosocial Centre for Trauma Therapy (PSZ) in the spring. We have now received approval for €20,000.00. It is the first time that we have received such a high level of funding from this ministry.

On 29 May, the Minister of Justice, Ms. Albulena Haxhiu, State Secretary Anita Kalanderi and the political advisor, Mrs Vlora Limani Hajnuni, visited us to get to know the diverse fields of work of Diakonie. After the tour of the Diakonie Training Centre, we had lunch together in the training kitchen.

The delegation then visited the PSZ and we were able to present the full range of our work:

–       Trauma therapy

–       Training as a trauma therapist (3 years)

–        Medical counselling and therapy

–       Free distribution of medication to Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians

We then visited the farm/workplace for people with disabilities. The Minister was delighted with the diverse areas of work and the high quality of our social work and support.
