Balfour+Manson are delighted to be supporting two fantastic charities in 2018 - Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) and Remembering Srebrenica.
They are at the forefront of preventing cruelty to animals and as the only animal charity in the UK recognised as a reporting agency to the Crown Office.
They are committed to supporting the welfare of all animals - domestic, farm and wildlife - and are continually deepening their welfare expertise through our ground breaking work and research with partners.
During the Balkans conflict of 1992-1995, the Bosnian town of Srebrenica was declared a UN Safe Area in 1993, under the watch of the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR).
In July 1995, General Ratko Mladić and his Serbian paramilitary units overran and captured the town, despite its designation as an area “free from any armed attack or any other hostile act”.
In the days following Srebrenica’s fall, more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were systematically massacred and buried in mass graves. Thousands of women, children and elderly people were forcibly deported and a large number of women were raped. It was the greatest atrocity on European soil since the Second World War.
Remembering Srebrenica is a British charitable initiative which organises the UK events for the EU-designated Srebrenica Memorial Day, which takes place annually on 11 July.
