Results of 'Balkanflut' fundraiser

January 5th, 2015

We received 16,776 EUR on our special account for the assistance in natural disasters, predominantly from Bosch employees. Robert Bosch GmbH donated an additional 20,000 EUR. Therefore, Primavera could support three aid projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia with the total amount of 37,500 EUR. Every Bosch organization in the respective country identified one project, which received funding of 12,500 EUR.

Bosnia and Herzegovina
More than 100,000 houses, about 200 schools and many hospitals are destroyed. The Hastor Foundation aims to make approx. 200 houses habitable again and to provide a home for many people.

The town of Paracin and its 32,000 inhabitants are affected by the flood in particular. Major clean up is already done and now the recovery of the local economy is very important. Together with the "help for self-help" organization, small business owners are supported in the reconstruction effort.

In Croatia, the state of emergency was proclaimed in several regions because of the flood. The region of Gunja, in which 4,000 people live near the rivers Sava and Danube in eastern Croatia, was particularly hard hit. More than 1,600 homes were destroyed. Here we support the targeted reconstruction through our donation to the relief fund of the municipality of Gunja.

The fundraiser "Balkanflut" is now completed with the transfer of project funding.
