Ambassador of China visits the children in Ladimirevci

SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci received a special visit on the first Monday in July, from an esteemed guest who brought gifts for our delighted children.

 The Republic of China ambassador to Croatia, His Excellency Hu Zhaoming and representatives of the Republic of China embassy visited the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci to learn more about the life and activities in the Children's Village. What is especially interesting about this visit is that this is the ambassador’s first official visit outside of Zagreb, where the Chinese embassy is located, since his appointment less than four months ago.

In conversation with the director of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci, the ambassador spoke of his ideas on building bonds between the two countries, some of which are especially thrilling for the children in SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci, who have been invited to take part in the next year’s celebrations of Spring Festival, also known as Chinese New Year, the most important and longest public holiday in China.

In addition to the ambassador and staff of the embassy of the Republic of China, we were also visited by Chinese business people who have been living and working in Zagreb for more than 20 years. Their donation of toys, clothes and shoes made all our children particularly happy, especially when they spotted the fidget spinners and immediately started spinning the little toys.

The international SOS Children's Villages organization is also active in the Republic of China, where they have ten SOS Children's Villages, nine SOS Youth Facilities, ten kindergartens, one school, two social centers and two youth education centers. We always support the development of children and youth in acquiring new knowledge and skills and discovering new possibilities, so the stated intention of ambassador Hu Zhaoming to establish cooperation between the embassy of the Republic of China in Croatia and SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci is wonderful news for us.
