Imagine wandering along the streets of Strasnik, now covered in rubble and filled with a sense of post-earthquake tension, and stumbling upon an envelope with 5000 kuna stuffed inside it as you check your mail? Not a bad surprise in a sea of truly terrible luck. What if multiple such envelopes were being found at addresses throughout Strasnik? That’s precisely what’s been happening.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, an anonymous donor sent four men to the affected area of Strasnik in central Croatia, and they left envelopes containing 5000 kuna inside them at many addresses, and the children living there also received toys.

According to a report from Jutarnji list, four men in a mysterious SUV with a shipment from an anonymous donor arrived in the village of Strasnik, the epicentre of the devastating earthquake that hit the Petrinja area on December the 29th last year.

”Good afternoon, this is for you. There’s an envelope with five thousand kuna in it, do you have any children? You have? Great, we also brought sweets for them too, to cheer them up a bit. We don’t have much time to talk, we have to move on,” they said to Strasnik’s bewildered residents, as reported by Jutarnji list.

Jutarnji unofficially learned that the anonymous donor is apparently Giuseppe Nardi, the president of the board of the German pharmaceutical company Dr. Theiss and the owner of its Croatian subsidiary NaturProdukt. They will also visit other villages and intend to distribute 45 or 46 such donations, which is equal to about 230 thousand kuna.
