Dear Zontas and Zonta’s friends,
It passed more than a month since the big disaster – great earthquakes that hit Croatian towns Petrinja, Sisak and Glina and the whole surrounding area. It is not necessary to stress the enormous consequences for the citizens, economy, agriculture and every aspect of the life and existence.
From the very first moment many and many institutions, organizations, group of individuals or just common people expressed great empathy and offered support and help in different ways and means. We are really thankful and it proves that humankind expresses its real nature just in the moments like that.
We received several messages from our Zonta friends not only from our District but from other parts of the Europe, and would like to express our gratitude to all of you. The reason why we did not respond earlier is very simple: there were so many opportunities and needs at the very first days and weeks that we decided to wait just a little to see what would be the best focus to, being aware that our help should somehow to be in line with Zonta’s mission, vision and goals.
You could find at this website what is our proposal – General hospital “Dr. Ivo Pedišić”, music school in Sisak and high school in Petrinja
Of course, if you would prefer to do something else – everyone will be grateful for that.
