Romić praised the efforts of the two humanitarians, who every year raise donations for summer holidays for about 40 children from Vukovar-Srijem County in a summer camp in the small Dutch town of Ermelo. During their stay there, Croatian children have many interesting activities aimed at improving their social skills.

For many of those children it has been the first such experience to travel abroad for summer holidays, the deputy mayor said.

Summer holidays for children in Ermelo have been organised by the Stichting Vrienden Speciale Kinderhulp (SVSK) for 20 years.

The war and suffering of people in eastern Croatia in the early 1990s prompted Tineke Sta-Bol and Ton van Bree to launch this humanitarian drive. They have also helped raise funds for the construction of playgrounds in the villages of Bapska, Čakovci, and Petrovci in Vukovar-Srijem County.

The two Dutch activists have been decorated by Queen Beatrix for their humanitarian work.
