VISIT OF THE REPRESENTATIVES OF IHH NETHERLANDS AND DISTRIBUTION OF AID TO THE BENEFICIARIES OF IFS-EMMAUS

In the past three days, we hosted the representatives of our long-time partner IHH from the Netherlands, Veli Bilge and Ahmet Başaran. The organization sent a truck of humanitarian aid for the needs of IFS-EMMAUS beneficiaries a month ago. This is a donation of medical beds, wheelchairs with and without electric drive, mattresses, crutches, etc.

Their visit was used to hand over the donation in one convenient way, and to get to know with the beneficiaries of their help. During the visit, our guests were introduced with the work and needs of the Reception Center Duje and were, above all, positively surprised by the organization and the situation within our center. We are especially pleased that the medical beds that they sent will find their place in the new capacities of the Reception Center Duje. Namely, several months ago, IFS-EMMAUS started upgrading one floor to existing facilities in order to increase the level of the current provision of services, but also created the capacities for receiving new future beneficiaries.

Given that a large number of people with disabilities are staying in the center, donated wheelchairs with and without electric drive will be of great help in everyday life of our beneficiaries.On this occasion, we would like to thank our partners and all donors from the Netherlands who supported this action, and we hope that our cooperation will expand and strengthen in the coming period.
