I am of Croatian and Serbian descent.  Hearing of the atrocities occurring in the former Yugoslavia breaks my heart. What can I do as a young mother in the United States to help? I feel a sense of hopelessness and would really appreciate some guidance.

   

My immediate instinct was to redirect you to Fair Fund, an organization working closely with women eastern Europe (and elsewhere). They will likely have lots of suggestions for you — and I'm sure they can utilize your interest in helping.
