How we got Started

St Joseph & The Helpers Charity was established in Ireland in May 2004 by Arthur McCluskey and fellow directors and in the UK in November of that year. It was set up to help the people of Bosnia Herzegovina to rebuild their lives following the cruel Yugoslav war of ‘92 – ‘95 when over 100,000 people were killed and at least two million (half the population) were made homeless. We aim to relieve poverty and advance education whilst respecting varying religions and cultures.

Heartfelt Thanks!

The directors of St Joseph & The Helpers Charity in Ireland and the UK wish to extend heartfelt thanks to our members, helpers and donors who have raised over €3 million for building and humanitarian projects in Bosnia Herzegovina. 100% of your donations go directly to the projects as all administration costs are paid by the directors.
