Under the auspices of the President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović, a donator evening “To Brave Hearts With Love” was held tonight in Banja Luka.
Due to the epidemiological situation, this year’s donator evening was organised with an appropriate television programme.
The President of the Republic of Srpska said within the traditional manifestation “To Brave Hearts With Love” that the society takes care of the local families in solidarity by raising funds intended for the establishment of the first Human Milk Bank in Srpska.
The President Cvijanović said that this was a great humanitarian evening with a noble goal, and she thanked the participants and the association “Mrvice”, which launched the initiative for this campaign to protect vulnerable social categories.
“In this association, there are wonderful mothers, wives and parents who pointed out the importance of establishing a breast milk bank. The fact that only a few such banks exist in the area shows that this is an important thing that will be a big step forward for us in the future. I am glad since the people from our University Clinical Centre were ready to welcome this idea and showed that they are up to the task of establishing that bank”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of the Republic added that she is always happy when goodwill in society is mobilised during the pre-holiday period, with the aim of stepping towards the needs of people and children who are endangered.
“When it comes to young children and babies, a new beginning and life, why would not we make it easier, make it better, more certain, safer? In that direction, I have insisted many times that it is no longer a matter of money, but of good will and what brings us together”, said the President Cvijanović, adding that Srpska has many times expressed humanity in these actions, that the response is great this year as well when it comes to businessmen and citizens.
“Of course, there are also institutions of Srpska and Serbia, and I am proud since we are again organising such a good and noble action, which shows the importance of making families happy and that there must be a strong and solid connection between family and society. That is exactly what we are doing tonight and we are showing that our society and the Republic take care of their families”, said the President Cvijanović.
The President of Srpska added that this year was challenging and difficult for everyone due to the Coronavirus, that this humanitarian campaign was not interrupted but adjusted to epidemiological conditions.
“The goal was for our small, talented artists from all over Srpska and beyond to take part in the action again. With this action we are showing solidarity for the establishment of the first Human Milk Bank, which in itself is a great thing. We will have that bank in the Republic of Srpska”, it was concluded by the President Cvijanović.
Tonight, the President of the Republic of Srpska pointed out the importance of Serbia participating in the action “To Brave Hearts With Love” in order to provide funds for the first Human Milk Bank in Srpska and thanked it for that.
The President of Srpska pointed out that the Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia Ana Brnabić is a great friend of this campaign, which she showed several years ago.
The President Cvijanović also believes that this is an opportunity to promote talented children who are ready to express their talent, to fit it all into a good deed and to get a breast milk bank this year.
“We have included children to participate in something that is noble, important, good, human, to teach them that it is important to help others. The idea was that by doing good deeds, helping others, teaching children to be available to others, we finally show their talents. Our children are great, they achieve notable results, they win international competitions. Each of them reacted in a positive way when you call them and say: We want you to be a part of the campaign”, explained the President Cvijanović.
More than one million BAM have been collected so far through donations within the humanitarian campaign “To Brave Hearts With Love” for launching the first Human Milk Bank in the Republic of Srpska, while the humanitarian number 1411 has been called 67,660 times.
