Well done – heralds of safe home and happy childhood present the film on the success of their project

It has been a year since catastrophic floods devastated the Županja Posavina region.

The flooding left deep scars on the population of the Županja Posavina region, and the experts of the Mobile Team Slavonija came to help them deal with the emotional and psychological trauma in the wake of the catastrophe.
The results of the first year of the programme ‘We Help Restore the Safety of Home for Children and Families’ were presented in the pleasant setting of the Municipal Public Library Drenovci.

Library director Goran Pavlović was as hospitable ever to our Mobile Team consisting of four young women and one young man, led by the director of the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci Zoran Relić, who presented the impressive work they undertook in the past year.

To showcase the reach of their humanitarian activities, they made an emotional film entitled We Were Here, which touched the hearts and stirred the emotions of everyone present. This group of young experts mobilized all of their intellectual, and even more importantly, emotional resources to help the population of the Županja Posavina region, which was devastated by catastrophic floods on May 17, 2014. On that day, SOS Children's Village Croatia through its Lekenik project also mobilized all of its human resources to provide relief – making children and their families a priority.

The emergency relief programme to help the affected region was designed quickly and submitted for financial funding to the SOS Children's Village Croatia umbrella organization, SOS Kinderdorf International. Today, this program runs successfully in eight locations in the area of Cvelferija - Drenovci, Đurići, Račinovci, Rajevo Selo, Strošinci and Gunja – and results achieved in the past year are a proof that the population of the Županja Posavina, especially its youngest members, still need this wonderful story to continue. To inspire them further, the members of the Mobile Team invited all attendees to write down their wishes, messages and goals to be achieved in the future and hang their notes on a special paper tree.
