Dr. Ivo Josipović visits SOS CV Ladimirevci

On Friday 13, 2015, the president of the Republic of Croatia dr. Ivo Josipović went on his last official visit before the inauguration of the new president. He visited the Osijek-Baranja County and SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci. It was his second visit to our SOS Children's Village in Slavonia.

 As in his last visit in 2012, president Josipović spent time with the children, members of the Children’s Parliament, who introduced themselves and their SOS families. He also visited SOS mother Valentina and her family in the Cherry House. He thanked the children for their performances and the adults for the work they put in to make sure that every child can grow in a safe, warm and supportive environment and finally, he wished everyone joy, happiness and success. The president was joined by the representatives of the football team Humane Stars of Croatia ’03. Together, they delighted the children by bringing candy, toys and sports equipment. The most special of all gifts was the honey from the beehives in the Presidential gardens, which will be especially helpful in these cold winter days. In return, the children gave the president a magic box full of their lively drawings, and eight-year-old Emilija embroidered the SOS houses on a throw pillow for the president. The photograph we took together will remind us of this lovely get-together and the messages of love, togetherness and care we shared with each other.
