Novak Đoković Fondacija donira 100,000 eura UNICEF-u u BiH za obnovu vrtića u Šamcu i Sanskom Mostu

Novak Đoković Fondacija će u narednom periodu, u saradnji sa lokalnim kancelarijama UNICEF-a, Bosni i Hercegovini i Hrvatskoj donirati 110.000 eura, za sanaciju šteta od poplava.

UNICEF u Bosni i Hercegovini će donaciju u iznosu od 100.000 eura iskoristiti za rekonstrukciju dva vrtića u Sanskom Mostu i Šamcu, dok će 10.000 eura UNICEF u Hrvatskoj uložiti u nabavku dezinfekcionih sredstava za zaštitu od zaraza i komaraca, koji na poplavljenom području ugrožavaju zdravlje djece.

“S obzirom na to da Fondacija nema kancelarije u Bosni i Hercegovini i Hrvatskoj, odlučili smo da 110.000 eura namijenjenih obnovi vrtića i nabavci urgentnih paketa pomoći doniramo lokalnim kancelarijama našeg dugogodišnjeg partnera, UNICEF-u, čiji je Novak ambasador. Poplave su ujedinile cijeli region i vrlo je važno da i sada, kada je na redu obnova, ostanemo tako ujedinjeni i pomažemo jedni drugima kako bi faza oporavka bila što kraća”, izjavila je Jelena Ristić, direktorica Novak Đoković Fondacije.

Predstavnica Novak Đoković Fondacije, Gorana Džudža Jakovljević, uručila je danas ček  u vrednosti od 110.000 eura direktoru UNICEF-a u Srbiji, Michel Saint-Lot.

“UNICEF u Bosni i Hercegovini, veoma je zahvalan Fondaciji Novaka Đokovića za najavljenu donaciju za rekonstrukciju i opremanje dvije predškolske ustanove čime će se omogućiti da se djeca iz Sanskog Mosta i Šamca što prije vrate normalnom životu. Mi nastavljamo mobilisati podršku, jer je ostalo manje od 70 dana za opravak ili opremanje obrazovnih ustanova, kako bi se omogućio normalan početak školske godine 1. septembra. Najmanje 11 predškolskih, 80 osnovnih i 12 srednjih škola su prijavljene kao teško oštećene i traže zvaničnu pomoć za opremanje ili rekonstrukciju (na osnovu zahtjeva nadležnih ministarstava obrazovanja). Dodatno, školama će biti potreban i namještaj, didaktički materijali i druge stavke”, rekla je je Florence Bauer, predstavnica UNICEF-a u Bosni i Hercegovini.

The Novak Djokovic Foundation handed over a check in the amount of 110,000 euros to UNICEF.

The funds will be used for post-flood recovery and reconstruction purposes by UNICEF Offices in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Croatia.

The donation to Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the amount of 100,000 euros, will be used for the reconstruction of two kindergartens, while 10,000 euros in Croatia have been earmarked for the implementation of mosquito control and the procurement of disinfectants in order to facilitate infection prevention, which in flooded areas can threaten the health of children.

“Given that we do not have offices in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia, we decided to donate 110,000 euros for the reconstruction of kindergartens and the procurement of emergency aid packages to the local offices of our long-time partner, UNICEF, especially as Novak is the UNICEF Ambassador. These floods have united the whole region and it is very important now, when the reconstruction is starting, that we stay united and help each other to make the recovery phase as short as possible”, said Jelena Ristic, Director of the Novak Djokovic Foundation.

Gorana Dzudza Jakovljevic, the representative from the Novak Djokovic Foundation, handed over

the cheque in the amount of 110,000 euros to Michel Saint-Lot, UNICEF Serbia Representative.

Funds donated to UNICEF in Bosnia and Herzegovina will be used for the reconstruction of two kindergartens in Sanski Most and Samac. Before the floods, these kindergartens were attended by more than 300 children.

“UNICEF in Bosnia and Herzegovina is very grateful to the Novak Djokovic Foundation for its donation intended for reconstruction and the procurement of school supplies for two pre-schools, which will enable children from Sanski Most and Samac to return to their normal lives as soon as possible. We continue to mobilize support, because we have less than 70 days for the repair of educational institutions and the supply of necessary equipment, in order to ensure the normal start of the school year on the 1st schools were reported to be severely damaged and require official assistance for the procurement of equipment and reconstruction activities (based on the requests of the relevant Ministries of Education). In addition, schools will require furniture, teaching materials and other items,” said Florence Bauer, UNICEF Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In Croatia, the 10,000 euros are earmarked for the provision of disinfectants and infection prevention, and a contract will be signed in the coming days of September. At least 11 pre-schools, 80 primary and 12 secondary
