She returned to Ličko Petrovo Selo, where she began growing fruit and vegetables for the first time in her life. Ojdana Vještica is a mother of two small children who lives near the town of Knin. Radmila Vojnović is a mother of three from the village of Mazin. Her family had undergone a difficult refuge period moving from one village to another.

Seka Prica returned after refuge in 1998 to her destroyed home, with a newborn child, husband and his parents, renovated the old farm, purchased livestock and designed an agricultural tourism project.
