Touching story of Refik Kovacevic's family, who live in the village near Bihac in wooden hut, with bad living conditions, leaves no one indifferent. The hut, which looks more like a shack is home of Refik and Himzeta and their children: Izet, Ismet, Elma, Irma, Refik, Senad, Bajram, Ermina. Two daughters are suffering from epilepsy, one of them is a child with special needs.
Himzeta goes each day on the trip longer of 12 kilometers to the kitchen of Merhamet "Imaret" in Bihac to get free lunch ... Poverty, insecurity, sadness .. are regular guests of the family.

Dear employees and board members, allow me to greet you in front of the Department of Human Resources and myself. Today's gathering has working character and at the same time is a ceremony.
As you know year of 2010 was extremely difficult for all of us. We have resisted all the presures, met all the deadlines. The perseverance, hard work, defiance have won.. faith in LOK's people have won, faith in the capable, loyal ... in people dedicated to their work.
Regardless on the spiritual and the economic crisis we had to acknowledge their work. Just because we are used to do that. We tried to be a good employer and have several benefits to them.
We have participated in numerous humanitarian actions, and educated people that they too should be genereous. An old Chinese proverb says: "if you plan a year in advance plant rice, if you plan ahead 10 years plant tree, if you plan a century ahead educate a man" ...
Performing any job has good and bad sides. In the field of human resources, for me, is nice when you have the opportunity to hire young and promising people, but believe me it is even more beautiful when that same people prove that they are very valuable, unsolicited and perform their tasks conscientiously.
And you promote them among the best of the best...„
Mrs Almedina Čaušević Esko, Executive Director LOK MCF
