NEW YORK, Jan. 22 ---- Peter Mikuliak of Mayfield, Pa., this month begins a one-year term as Church World Service Regional Director for Bosnia- Herzegovina, based in Metkovic, Croatia.
A member of the Orthodox Church in America and a long-time CWS staffer, Mr. Mikuliak will give oversight to CWS response to human needs in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina in what he called "the joyous process of transition from war relief to reconstruction and reconciliation."
Since the start of the conflict four years ago, U.S. churches have provided more than $10 million in humanitarian aid through Church World Service to civilians affected by the fighting in Bosnia- Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia. To better identify and meet needs, CWS opened its office in Metkovic in late 1992.
From 1985-94, Mr. Mikuliak served Church World Service as an Associate Regional Director for Community Education and Fund-Raising in Cherry Hill, N.J. That assignment included ecumenical community organizing, program interpretation and fund-raising, particularly through CROPWALKS, statewide.
In 1994-95, he was Director of Volunteer Programs for the Baltimore, Md.-based International Orthodox Christian Charities, including an emergency four-month assignment as Acting Country Representative in Moscow, Russia. He has led NCC ecumenical youth work camps to Russia for four years.
Previous experience included social services and community organizing, with a term as a Peace Corps volunteer in Brazil. Mr. Mikuliak is the third person to serve as Director of the CWS operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
