Gathering of aid and collection centers

Aid we are collecting in cooperation with the association “DoDo – Dobro Dobrim”

We are happy to see our appeals are being heard.

Various organizations and civic initiatives throughout Istria have been activated, as well as Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, which joined our initiative recently. Udruga mladih Rijeka (eng. Youth Club Rijeka) will collect resources and donations from their county, which we will transport to Zagreb, and then further to Ukraine.

As for the County of Istria, the number of organizations joining us is constantly growing, and we would like to thank the following organizations:

  • INSTITUT – Pula
  • NK ISTRA FAN CLUB – DEMONI
  • NK JADRAN FAN CLUB – ŠAJETE BOYS
  • GRUPA KATOLIČKE MLADEŽI POREŠTINE
  • GRAĐANI ZA GRAĐANE
  • UDRUGA MLADIH RIJEKA

Five schools from the Buje region, one kindergarten, and several homes for the elderly and infirm throughout Istria joined our initiative as well.
We believe the list will continue to grow!

We ask everyone to stick to the published list of necessities when collecting donations, as we are now collecting only the most basic and most necessary items (as per instructions from the borders and Ukraine). Other donations will be collected at a later date, as needed.

Considering the organization “Istra Pomaže” is partnered with “Dobro Dobrim DoDo,” and we are collecting donations in cooperation with them, WE ASK ALL RESIDENTS OF ISTRIA to bring donations to us, instead of directly to Zagreb. We have agreed upon such an arrangement to alleviate the headquarters in Zagreb by allowing organizations from different counties to accept, sort, and prepare the donations for transportation. As we emphasized initially, such initiatives must be well organized to avoid unnecessary logistical problems.
