Happy and Articulate in the New School Year

INA – Industrija nafte d.d. presented the association SOS Children's Village Croatia with the donation in the amount of HRK 100.000. These funds will be used to provide speech therapy and special education for approximately 50 kids from the SOS Children's Villages Ladimirevci and Lekenik who suffer from speech and language disorders.


Ladimirevci, September 20 – Using the motto “Happy and Articulate in the New School Year”, INA – Industrija nafte d.d. today presented the association SOS Children's Village Croatia with the donation in the amount of HRK 100.000. These funds will go towards providing expert help in speech therapy and special education for approximately 50 children from SOS Children's Villages Ladimirevci and Lekenik who suffer from speech and language disorders.

On behalf of INA, the donation was presented to the director of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci Zoran Relić by Dragan Cvenić, director of the Slavonia Region, who pointed out that this is one more proof of sound partnership between INA and association SOS Children's Village Croatia.


“The campaign ‘Happy and Articulate in the New School Year’ reflects our decision to provide children who suffer from speech and writing disorders with the support of speech therapist and special education teacher. This is our contribution to a happier life of Ladimirevci children. Campaigns of this nature are without any doubt a type of activity that gives us most joy. Although we support numerous institutions and a number of humanitarian, cultural, educational, sports, environmental and other projects by giving out donations and striking up partnerships that contribute to the overall quality of life and social development, nothing compares to making children smile and improving their lives. This is the most precious reward we can get for our efforts and investing into our community”, said Cvenić during the event.


Zoran Relić expressed thanks for the donation and added: “Thanks to this valuable donation from our friends in INA, we can now count on continued support of our experts, who are instrumental in helping our children shape their future. On behalf of our children and co-workers, I would like to thank our friends and partners in INA for believing in us, supporting and helping our work and thus making an active and valuable contribution to the overall care that children receive in our SOS families in the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci.”
 

Association SOS Children's Village Croatia has been active since 1992 as a full member of SOS Kinderdorf International, the world’s largest non-government child and youth care organization. Through SOS Children's Villages Lekenik and Ladimirevci and 5 SOS Youth Facilities, the Association provides care for app. 250 children without parents or parental care, giving them love and security in a family-based environment, along with a permanent home and education they need to enjoy happy and peaceful childhood.
After last year’s European Water Polo Championship, when INA donated 2 HRK out of each ticket sold at its gas stations to the SOS Children's Village Lekenik, and this year, when INA’s donation ensured that 120 children from the SOS Children's Villages Ladimirevci and Lekenik would be able to vacation in the Županja’s Red Cross resort in Rogoznica during July and August, this donation continues INA’s successful partnership with SOS Children's Village Croatia. In addition to the above, INA and its daughter company Maziva-Zagreb d.o.o. ran a campaign from May 1 to the end of September of this year during which they donated 20 lipas from every sold liter of Autoglas at INA’s gas stations to SOS Children's Village Croatia.
