Samsung donates HRK 200,000 to SOS Children's Village Croatia

The final Samsung Hope Relay took place yesterday at the Jarun lake in Zagreb. The response to this charity campaign in Croatia was overwhelming.

The final Samsung Hope Relay attracted a large number of participants whose involvement in this charity campaign helped raise funds for the SOS Children's Village Croatia.
During the month-long campaign, participants pursuing various recreational activities raised more than HRK 55,000, and the rest of the HRK 200,000 will be covered by Samsung through the donation of their products, which will be used to improve the quality of life in the Villages. Marinka Šenjug, SOS Children's Village Croatia FR/PR director, accepted the donation after the final race from Belizar Zečić, Head of Telecommunications at the Samsung Electronics Adriatic.

“First of all, I would like to thank all Croatian citizens who participated in this race and thus became a part of the special story of Samsung Hope Relay. Fifteen countries took part, so Croatia had the honor of being one of the select few”, said Belizar Zečić, Head of Telecommunications at the Samsung Electronics Adriatic.

“This donation means a lot to SOS Children's Village, because the financial part of the donation will cover the utility expenses of one SOS family for an entire year, while Samsung products will improve the life in our Villages”, said Marinka Šenjug, SOS Children's Village Croatia FR/PR Director.

In the period between August and today, anyone could download the free application to their smart phone from the Samsung Croatia Facebook page, thus contributing to this charity campaign. Specifically, for every three kilometers one completed on one’s bike or roller skates, while jogging or walking, Samsung Electronics donated HRK 7 to the SOS Children's Village Croatia.

All participants in the final race were cheered on by the Samsung Hope Relay ambassadors in Croatia, Martina Zubčić and Doris Pinčić, together with numerous Croatian Olympic athletes. The band Connect and Iva Šulentić as the M.C. made sure everyone had an equally great time after the race.
