The community in Luxembourg immediately stepped into action and sent humanitarian aid to the Jukinac NGO that is active in the Glina area, a press release said.

“We watched the news every day and saw the tonnes of food, clothing and footwear being sent to Sisak, Petrinja and Glina from all of Croatia and abroad. We did not wish to send anything that there would be too much of and for local authorities to not to know what to do with it. That is why the information we received from the Jukinac NGO was very important because we knew what is needed the most and where and then we collected and sent that,” said Ivana Filipović Schumacher, who is one of the organisers of the voluntary humanitarian drive along with Mladen Lamza.

She added that the response was fantastic. About fifty Croatian volunteers who live and work in Luxembourg responded and donated and then sorted everything so that packages can be immediately handed over to families who are in need.  Filipović Schumacher underlined that not only Croats donated but many Luxembourg citizens did too.

Numerous companies too donated goods like ActionWear, Breger & Kevric, Streff, Asja Trevisan from Green Line Transport, Ponistralux  and the Eutherm company from Vinkovci. Filipović Schumacher expressed special gratitude to the director of the Ponistralux company, Tomislav Tomi Brkan, who made storage space and transport available during the humanitarian campaign.
