WORLD DAY OF THE SICK MARKED IN HVAR BY THE SECONDARY SCHOOL HVAR, PARISH OFFICE AND THE RED CROSS

As every year the Day of the Sick is marked with a meaningful event.This year it was marked by presenting a hospital bed to the representative of the Hvar Red Cross, director Marija Budrović. The bed was purchased by funds donated by the Hvar Secondary school gathered through charity selling exhibitions of youth, organized several times in the previous year. Since most of the inhabitants of the island is elderly, hospital beds are in highest demand in the Red Cross. Furthermore, this noble gesture was praised by don Mili Plenković, parish priest who was actively involved in organizing the events. Motto of the day was to thank all those taking care of the sick: health, religious and social workers, and volunteers and activists of the Red Cross.

After presenting the bed, which is immediately going to be utilized to help our gravely ill fellow citizen, a new selling exhibition has been opened in order to buy a new aid for our citizens in need.

It has also been noted that Feb. 2nd on the square of St. Stephen, from 10 am, there will be a drive I WANT TO LIVE – selling merchandize with the logo of the ''Ana Rukavina'' foundation, to collect funds for the tissue typing process.
