Making A Difference

Homeless Outreach

One Step at a Time

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Homeless Outreach is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact.
Currently, we are working on homeless hygiene kits to distribute on the streets of Chicago and Philadelphia. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause and get involved.

Ramadan Preparations

Let's Plan Iftars

With the month of Ramadan quickly approaching we are raising money to sponsor Iftar dinners for students at the University of Dzemal Bijedic in Mostar. Our goal is to broaden our impact internationally during the month of Ramadan because of the lack of resources around the world in comparison to those found here in the United States.

Library Project

Reading is Fun

Friends of the Book Club Chicago and Helping Hearts of Bosnia & Herzegovina started in April 2018 a fundraiser to purchase books for a library at the elementary school "Bužim" which has approximately 1362 students. 
Unfortunately, many of the curriculum required readings students are not completing due to the shortage of books.  
Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.

Feeding The Community

At Helping Hearts of Bosnia and Herzegovina, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Food Donation Drop-Off is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support. At Helping Hearts of Bosnia & Herzegovina, we are committed to creating a community of individuals who want to give their time to those in need. In 2016 Forward Humanity started a great weekly homeless food drive at Chicago Islamic Center which was beginning of 2019 taken over by DIC. We join their volunteers on Sundays from 10 am to noon to make bagged lunches for the homeless at the DIC. No need to ask us to attend, everyone is welcome! Regularly, one hour is used to prepare around 100 bagged lunches and the rest of the time is spent distributing the lunches to the homeless in Chicago.

Oral Health Free Clinic

Healthy Community

With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.

Every year we collaborate with a dental office in Bosnia and Herzegovina to open a free periodontal health day for our sisters and brothers that cannot afford basic dental care. We spend a day examining their teeth, providing dental cleanings and educating them on how to better care for oral health. We hope to expand and add more cities for this wonderful dental service in the future.


If you are a dentist in Bosnia and Herzegovina, or Chicago and would like to open your door and invite patients for free dental evaluations, please let us know! We’d love to hear from you!

Islamic Oasis Center

Education is the Key

In March of 2018, our committed volunteers visited the Islamic Oasis Center in Chicago to educate refugee youth on the importance of dental health hygiene. With your generous donations, we were able to create dental kits to pass out at the end of our presentation. In the future, we hope to work with the Islamic Oasis Center to create more events geared towards helping the women and children refugee population here in Chicago.

Re-Building Homes

Reinforcing our Commitment

In cooperation with a humanitarian organization "Izvor Pomoci" in Mostar we managed to build a new house in 2017 for a family of four in Mostar. Our work didn't end there; over Summer 2018 with our donations we remodeled "Djeciji Dom" in Mostar. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.

Eid al-Adha Donations

So turn in prayer towards Allah and sacrifice (animals). (108.2)

Qurbani is the sacrifice of an animal performed during the days of Eid al-Adha, following the practice of Prophet Ibrahim (as). For only $150, Helping Hearts of Bosnia & Herzegovina performs Qurbani on behalf our donors, in some of the poorest communities in Bosnia. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

Clean Water is a Human Right

Let's build a water well!

Unfortunately, in Uganda alone, there are tens of thousands of people still trying to survive without easy access to clean and healthy water. Each of our wells can serve up to 2,000 people’s basic daily needs. With your help and compassion, we can make these projects become a reality. Contact us to learn more about our commitment about this cause.
