Kosovo Widows of War
The province of Gjacova in Kosovo had the highest number of civilian fatalities during the Balkan war. Some villages, like Meje have no men left but their widows and children. The fate of these women increasingly uncertain as international charity organisations are slowly moved from the Balkans leaving the reconstruction process to an halt. Many home have been left half built. The widows and their children have had to seek shelter with relatives, whilst those that couldn't, live in very devastating conditions.
