Daniela Rogulj

Given that this year’s wildfire season has already exhausted huge resources and funds earmarked for firefighting in Croatia, humanitarian organization Cro Unum has found a way to help.

Croatian humanitarian organization Cro Unum has organized a football tournament with veterans Hajduk and Dinamo, members of Cro Unum, and stars of the humanitarian scene, in an effort to raise money for the Firefighters Association of Split-Dalmatia County. The tournament will be held on Sunday, July 23, from 18:30 at the FESB sports field, reports Dalmatinski Portal on July 20, 2017. 

“Over the last few days, while we have witnessed the devastating fires that seriously jeopardized Dalmatia and the city of Split, we have also witnessed the heroic efforts of our firefighters who have fought tirelessly to stop them from spreading, preventing catastrophic consequences of a larger scale. Given that this year’s fire-fighting season has started dreadfully, huge resources have been exhausted to extinguish the fires, and every last bit of help is needed for our firefighters,” explained Cro Unum’s motive for the event. 

There will be many Split socialities, as well as many celebrated athletes participating in the event on Sunday, including Ivan Buljan, Ivica Šurjak, Vilson Džoni, Ivan Gudelj, Nenad Pralija, Nikica Cukrov, Željko Mijač, Dragutin Ćelić, Vlatko Đolonga, Darko Miladin, Hrvoje Vejić, Ivica Mornar, Dragan Primorac, Željko Pavlović, Igor Cvitanović, Fabijan Komljenović, Branko Strupar, Hrvoje Štrok, Drago Vabec, Dalibor Poldrugač, Davor Braun, Alen Peternac, Danijel Štefulj, Roy Ferenčina, Joško Jeličić, Tomislav Madžar, Damir Primorac, Franjo Arapović, Zoran Primorac, Dubravko Šimenc, Igor Štimac and many more.

Cro Unum is one of the largest humanitarian associations in Croatia that brings together celebrities, musicians and Croatian public figures. The members of the association have so far participated in organizing a series of major humanitarian actions such as ‘From the Heart’ at Poljud in 2007 in honor of fallen firefighters, the humanitarian sports and music spectacle ‘Heart of Knowledge’ in Varazdin  in 2008, and the humanitarian action ‘Our Little World’ for the children of KBC Split, where distinguished Italians and Croatians from the social, political, sport and cultural scene held a concert, and more, for over 15,000 visitors to Poljud. 

The association is led by prof.dr. Dragan Primorac, and included in the presidency of the association are prof.dr. Igor Jukić, prof.dr. Iva Dekaris, Franjo Arapović, Zoran Primorac, Mate Bulić, Jako Andabak, Silvija Londero, Sanja Mlačak, Vedran Mlikota and Dario Šimić. The Secretary General of the Association is doc.dr.
