Bosnia and Herzegovina has been struck by horrible floods, leading native son and AS Roma star Miralem Pjanic to swoop in to help out.
The midfielder went to a pharmacy in Sarajevo and bought the place out, then distributing the needed supplies to victims.
According to Radio Sarajevo, Pjanic was able to make the gesture in conjunction with the Sports Journalists Association, who have been organising a humanitarian effort to help people who have been hit by the freak floods throughout the country.
Back in Bosnia for a training camp with the national team, Pjanic visited a pharmacy in the capital last night and “literally emptied the shelves”, sending out several trucks full of medicine and dressings to the affected towns of Maglaj, Zavidoviće, Željezno Polje, Olovo and others.
The 24-year-old has 46 caps and 8 goals for Bosnia and Herzegovina ahead of this summer’s World Cup.
