The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović met today with the representatives of the Union of Associations for help to mentally disabled persons of the Republic of Srpska (MeNeRaLi) who presented her with the results of last year’s humanitarian campaign “To Brave Hearts with Love”.

The President of the Republic of Srpska said that 13 vehicles, which were purchased with funds from the humanitarian campaign “To Brave Hearts with Love”, are the crown of the joint work of institutions, the Union of Associations for help to mentally disabled persons of the Republic of Srpska (MeNeRaLi) and the citizens.

The President of the Republic stated that the procurement of vehicles was the success of the humanitarian campaign, within which BAM 619,057 was collected, and that the citizens once again showed their big hearts.

“We are satisfied with the results achieved, but we are determined to continue with these activities, so that vehicles will be provided for other members of the Alliance in the coming period, through individual interventions or again collectively”, said the President Cvijanović.

The President of Srpska stated that at the meeting they also discussed what can still be done in this area, and how the system of inclusive education can be improved in order to include all children in the teaching process, regardless of what problems they face.

The President of the Republic expressed her gratitude to the MeNeRaLi association, but also to all other similar associations, for their cooperation with the institutions of Srpska and their advice, initiatives, suggestions and proposals on how to improve the legislation and provide conditions for a better life for the citizens.

“Institutions cannot work alone if they do not have proper and good information based on experience, from those who are representatives of certain associations”, said the President of Srpska.

The President Cvijanović emphasized the importance of citizens’ participation in this, as well as all previous humanitarian campaigns, in order to provide better conditions for the work of associations and their beneficiaries.

“This does not imply support only for individuals, but for entire families so that they can organise their lives in the best and highest quality possible way”, said the President of the Republic.
