In addition to the beneficiaries themselves, the event was attended by Gianluca Vannini, Head of Operations, Section for Social Development, Civil Society and Cross-Border Cooperation at the European Union Delegation to BiH; Edin Ramić, Minister of Displaced Persons and Refugees in the Federation of BiH; Sead Džafić, Mayor of Kalesija; Nermina Džepar-Ganibegović, RHP Country Housing Project Lead Manager at the Ministry for Human Rights and Refugees of BiH; Sanja Hamidović, Programme Manager at the EU Delegation to BiH, and Aleksandar Čađenović, Government Liaison Officer at UNHCR.
On behalf of the European Union – the main Donor to the RHP – Gianluca Vannini warmly congratulated the beneficiaries on their new homes and the BiH authorities for completing approximately 2 530 housing units to date but observed nevertheless that efforts still needed to be invested to ensure the integration of the families within their communities.
