27 years and still doing great things
I first learned about Janukanyaka around 1992 during the height of the Bosnian War, an international armed conflict that took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina between 1992 and 1995. Back then she was known to me as Jadranka, and she and her team of FFL volunteers would bravely somehow prepare bread and cookies and deliver them in baskets around the besieged city of Sarajevo. You can learn more about her efforts back then, here.
It was astonishing and heartwarming.
She instantly became an inspiration to the few Food for Life projects around the world that existed back then.
Well, 27-years on and Janukanyaka and her good friend Nandisvara are still serving the people of Sarajevo with her delicious food and Cheshire smile. This time she is supported by FFLG affiliate, Happy Cookies that prepare their food with love and positive energy. As far as possible they use healthy, fresh, organic and non-GMO ingredients. Happy Cookies cooperates with Govinda’s restaurants all around the world and provide the cookies to FFL volunteers to distribute and promote equality and respect.
