Under the high patronage of the President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović, the Donors’ Evening “To Brave Hearts With Love” was held tonight in Banja Luka.
The Republic of Srpska President Željka Cvijanović expressed her satisfaction with the fact that young artists responded to her invitation to help her organise a humanitarian campaign “To Brave Hearts With Love”, putting their talent in the function of solidarity and love for their fellows who need help.
The President Cvijanović emphasized that she was proud of the partnership she achieved together with young artists who took part at the donors’ evening tonight and who came from different parts of the Republic of Srpska and from Drvar as well.
The President of the Republic said that they are great children who, with their artistic performance, want to help other children and emphasized that without them this event would not be so successful.
“Today, it is a holiday of Djetinjci, one of the most beautiful family holidays ahead of Christmas. It symbolizes the power of family ties, harmony and mutual help on all occasions. It is in this spirit that we organised this year’s humanitarian event “To Brave Hearts With Love”, where the whole Republic of Srpska took part for the ninth year, initiated by the then President of the Republic Milorad Dodik and therefore I thank him on behalf of all those to whom the aid was intended”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of Srpska reminded that the funds collected this year will be used for procurement of devices for robotic assisted rehabilitation of children with movement disorders.
“The importance of this device is sufficiently explained by the fact that 150 to 200 children in the Republic of Srpska annually need intensive physical treatment using robotics. Such treatment is not common in the countries in the region, and where it exists there is a huge cost for our users.
With the acquisition of robotics, we will introduce a completely new, modern service into our healthcare system. This is a device which will facilitate not only the process of rehabilitation, but also lives to Teodora and Matej, as well as all other brave hearts, who are not here with us tonight, but are in our hearts”, it was emphasized by the President of the Republic of Srpska.
The President of the Republic emphasized that everyone wants to help, and that this is why the whole Republic of Srpska has gathered around this event.
“Money can be provided in different ways, institutions will definitely do it. But what makes this event special is that it mobilizes good will and solidarity throughout the Republic of Srpska. It is the same tonight, since every move or movement any child does will be the success of all of us and it will be our movement as well”, said the President of the Republic of Srpska.
The President of the Republic expressed her special gratitude to the Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic of Serbia, Ana Brnabić, for participating this year on this important and beautiful event as well as for the generous donation provided by the Government of Serbia this year.
“I also welcome our public figures, cultural workers, athletes, singers, artists from the Republic of Srpska and Serbia, as well as the media that are with us tonight and which participated in the promotional campaign of this action in the past weeks.
I would particularly like to thank the medical staff at the Institute for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Dr Miroslav Zotović, where this ‘magical robot’ will be located as a friend of children who need its help, said the President Cvijanović.
With gratitude to great donors, such as the Government of the Republic of Serbia, and all others who provided support, such as the Government of the Republic of Srpska, public companies, businessmen, media, public figures, the President of the Republic expressed special gratitude to the citizens of Srpska who, by single calling the humanitarian number 1411 donated one BAM, and those who made individual payments, as she said, are precisely the proof that humanity and attention for those in need are in our hearts.
“And once again, I would particularly like to thank our great talents who, as eager to help their peers – courageous hearts, have accepted to be my partners in organising this warm and humane event! Thank you all for the kindness you show”, it was stressed by the President of the Republic of Srpska.
