N.K. and his old parents live in a distant area of Donje Liplje, some 30 km from Kotor Varos. N.K. was born there in 1960. The family was very poor so he went to Croatia to work as a very young man. He changed locations, following labor needs. He returned to BiH and was registered as departed spontaneously in 2002. In meantime, his parents started to show symptoms of mental disorder. Now, N.K. is desperately trying to find any kind of job. This year they could not even grow vegetables for their own consumption as they could not buy seeds. His father is receiving 153 BAM of pension (he was also working in Croatia for some time). As of 01 June, the CSW Kotor Varos approved monthly social care allowance of 41 BAM for his mother who was institutionalized during the war.
