Kosovo Government decides the value of compensation for raped persons during the war

Process of status recognition of raped persons during the war in Kosovo, was finalized with definition of the value of the compensation in the amount of 230 euros by Kosovo Government during mid of November 2017.

Medica Kosova, as an organization involved in addressing this status recognition since many years before, appreciates the decision of Kosovo Government and the joint efforts of KRCT who supported to have this process pushed forward.

Through defining the value of this compensation, the survivors are expected to receive not only material support but above all achieved to have their terrible war experiences recognized by Institutions and Kosovo society.

Upon the beginning of the process for the status recognition as civilian victims of war, the organization will invite additional survivors to receive the necessary support for entering the application procedures.

This is possible to achieve, considering the authorization of Medica Kosova to represent the survivors in the process.

“Medica Kosova” is established in Aug 1999 and registered as a local NGO since Oct 2003 for improving mental and physical situation of women affected by war and post-war violence. The support consists of psychosocial counseling, legal assistance, provision of agricultural and bee-keeping activities for increasing family incomes, medical care in the center ambulance and the mobile unit traveling to the villages of Dukagjini Region. To this end, the organization implemented over 30 projects providing social and rehabilitation services, reproductive health care, women’s access to properties and other legal rights, and since 2011 access to justice and documentation of war rape.
