SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci celebrates its 15th anniversary

Today SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci celebrated its 15th anniversary in the presence of numerous children from SOS Children's Villages and many guests – friends, collaborators and partners of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci. Leading the celebration were Višnja Tuškan-Krupić, SOS Children's Village Croatia national director, and Zoran Relić, the director of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci, who welcomed the guests.

The anniversary celebration gathered the friends of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci of all ages, who enjoyed the opportunity to spend the day with our children. Recitals, songs and sketches that children from Ladimirevci performed for the guests made everyone smile and reminded them how lovely it is to be a child and how important it is to encourage the creativity in children. Everyone who gathered here had the chance to enter the world of the SOS children and see for themselves the environment they live in, surrounded by understanding and love that SOS mothers and other co-workers in SOS Children's Village selflessly share with them on a daily basis.

The highlight of the day was the sweet surprise – a rainbow colored cake! Without it, the celebration of the 15th anniversary of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci certainly would not be complete. The guests enjoyed the delicacies, and later all took turns in participating in a variety of creative and entertaining workshops organized by the hosts.
Children and their SOS mothers generously opened the doors of their SOS houses to everyone who came to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Village with them.

''We would once again like to take this opportunity and thank everyone who recognized the worthiness of this project in our region from the beginning. Without them, SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci would have never had the chance to give this much love and commitment to children and young people who need love and support the most”, said Višnja Tuškan-Krupić, the director of SOS Children's Village Croatia.
The director of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci Zoran Relić took the opportunity to express his satisfaction with the anniversary celebration: “In our modest way, we wanted to share our gratitude, happiness and love we have for this Village and to promote healthy development for everyone, not just the inhabitants of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci. Children are the crowning glory of the world, just as Arsen Dedić said in his song. We are grateful for the trust our donors keep showing us.”

The celebration of the 15th anniversary of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci is the continuation of the campaign by SOS Children's Village Croatia called Your Future Depends On Us – Our Present Depends On You, designed to raise funds for the better future of children through transfer orders, online payment or by calling the charity hotline 060 840 840.
