In mid-May 2014, the entire area of ​​Zavidovići was hit by a natural disaster, the heavy rain caused floods and landslides, such that have never been seen in this area before. Many infrastructure and private buildings were destroyed by the floods, mountain streams and rain. Immediately after the cessation of rainfall, came out information about many landslides dangerous for people, their houses and farms.

Households in this regard are backward and each family has a specific need to regain stability.
