How you can help the children of Bosnia

The Independent is asking readers to support four charities working to help child victims of the wars in former Yugoslavia.

Save the Children is focusing on children who have been separated from their families, counselling and reuniting them; the Red Cross is running the largest humanitarian operation in the region, looking after refugee camps and linking people through its messaging network; War Child plans to build a pounds 2.5m music therapy centre in Mostar, and to send urgently needed prosthetics to wounded children in the Tuzla area; Child Advocacy International aims to bring up to 100 sick children to Britain for treatment.

So far, the appeal has raised over pounds 70,000, including collections organised by schools and young people's groups.

Please make cheques or postal orders payable to the charity of your choice and send them to us with the completed coupon (below).
