Mother’s Village

Mother’s Village

In 1993, “Mother’s Village” emerged from the desire of its founder, Fr. Slavko Barbaric, to offer protection and care of the children and youth who were wounded by the loss of their homes and parents during and after the Bosnian War. The building and operations were started by Fr. Slavko and was aided by the Franciscan School Sisters of “The Holy Family” from the province of Hercegovina. The Village officially opened on September 8, 1996, and is a witness of the love of Our Lady and St. Francis.
