Kosovo Widows of War
Skenderaj in Kosovo is the most destroyed area from the war. The war started in this region and it ended here. It has had the majority of numbers of civilian killings and some villages like Meje have no men left: there are only widows with their children.
Nowadays, the situation of the widows looks even more perilous after international organisations are slowly moved from the Balkans. Some of the widows live in homes that were slowly being rebuilt with the aid of international aid organizations but now left half built. Many of the widows are still homeless. The luckier ones take shelter with relatives but many live in very devastating conditions: in tiny rooms with a little stove, mattress on the floor to sleep and to sit on.
