BOSNIA SEEKS INSPIRATION FROM BRADFORD'S COMMUNITIES

The International Committee of the Red Cross has chosen Bradford as the blueprint for regenerating communities in Bosnia-Herzegovina that were devastated during the Yugoslavian civil war.

The Yorkshire Post (p4) reports that delegates from Bosnia will carry out a three-day fact-finding tour of the city next week.

They will pick up ideas by studing the way community groups have turned Bradford's fortunes around, which they can try out when they return home.

Sarah Hargreaves, the ICRC health delegate in Sarajevo, said Bradford was chosen because it enjoyed similar cultural circumstances to Mostar. 'The party will be made up of key people from the communities we are working in,' she said. 'We are concerned with development at the community level by addressing basic health needs - covering everything from sewage to housing.'
