As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 28th of October, 2020, with a donation in the amount of 301,387.50 kuna, the PBZ Group contributed to the adaptation of the Karlovac Children and Youth Home with the aim of improving working conditions and the quality of social care of its users.

“The latest donation that we realised as part of our long-term humanitarian project ‘I do good every day/Cinim dobro svaki dan’ is intended for the Karlovac Children and Youth Home. We hope that the adaptation of the residential building to provide accommodation services to its users will contribute to improving the quality of their daily lives and social care, and also enable them to remain as comfortable as possible. More than fifty donations within the aforementioned project, which included donations to numerous homes for children and youth, pediatric wards and children’s hospitals throughout our country, confirm our continued commitment to helping the community in which we operate,” said Mislav Blazic, President of the Management Board of PBZ Card.

The aforementioned Karlovac home provides social care services to children and young people with behavioural problems and mental health issues, offering accommodation, both half-day and full-day stays, organised housing, counseling and assistance to primary and foster families and individuals after leaving care, service inpatient and outpatient team assessments and more for about a hundred users.

“Thanks to the social sensitivity of the donors, the PBZ Group, with the support of the Ministry of Labour, Family and Social Policy and the City of Karlovac, created the foundations for us to be able to expand the range of services we can provide as an institution with this donation. The social welfare system has begun an extensive process of transformation, ie the deinstitutionalisation of care so that as few children as possible spend as little time as possible in institutional care. Our effort to provide organised housing to some of our users with comprehensive support is being done precisely with this in mind. This PBZ Group donation greatly contributed to the adaptation of the residential building, specifically enabling the installation of a new roof on the said building, which we received on concession from the City of Karlovac, and will be used for organised housing. On behalf of the Karlovac home, I’d like to thank the PBZ Group for their long-term support to all those who in any way invest their professional and personal time in caring for others,” said Martina Brajdic Manojlovic, the director of the Karlovac home.

The donation to the Karlovac home is part of the PBZ Group’s socially responsible business project, which is part of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group, and which has been implemented for more than twelve years under the name ‘I do good every day’. With the funds raised for this project, PBZ Group supports national, long-term projects for the benefit of children and youth.
