Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, May 11, 2020 – A shipment of protective equipment arrived in Bosnia and Herzegovina on Monday as a donation from Croatia and was received by Bosnia’s Foreign Minister Bisera Turković and Croatia’s Ambassador in Sarajevo Ivan Sabolić.

The shipment consists of protective masks and glasses, visors, tents, sleeping bags, blankets and medicinal alcohol.

Speaking to Hina, Ambassador Sabolić said that the shipment was confirmation of Croatia’s readiness to help its neighbour in the current crisis too.

He recalled that Croatia had previously helped health institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Mostar University Hospital, for example.

Croatia is continually earmarking budget funds for the hospitals in Nova Bila, Jajce and Orašje as well as eight health clinics.

In early April the Croatian government approved HRK 43 million as aid for health institutions throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina, primarily in those areas where Croats live, and in an effort to curb the COVID-19 epidemic and to settle dues to suppliers of medicines and other medicinal products.

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Assistant Foreign Minister Almir Sahović said that his country is grateful to Croatia for the aid it sent and that it is welcome because it is obvious that the fight against the epidemic is not over yet.
