The Congress of North American Bosniaks (CNAB), on behalf of Bosniaks in the United States and Canada, sent condolence letters to Japanese embassies and Japanese American representatives expressing sympathies with the victims of the horrific natural disaster that struck Japan on March 11th.
The Congress of North American Bosniaks (CNAB), an umbrella organization representing interests of more than 350,000 Bosniaks in the United States and Canada, expresses its sincere sympathy and condolences to the victims of the horrific earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on Friday. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Japanese people as they mourn the victims and conduct a search and rescue effort of the survivors. We also understand that it will take a long time to recover from the devastation caused by the largest earthquake in recorded history of Japan and the subsequent tsunami.
Bosniak people, most of them victims of war, know what it is like to be in a time of need and understand the helplessness associated with devastation and loss of life. We hope that the Japanese people will quickly receive the support they need to recover from this tragedy and rebuild their lives. We remember the support our country received from Japan during and after the war In Bosnia and Herzegovina. We also stand together with many Japanese Americans who are concerned with family members and relatives in Japan. CNAB will do whatever it can to assist and encourage its members to do the same in helping the victims of this natural disaster.
