ZAGREB, November 8, 2020 – Red Cross Croatia (HCK) has launched the “Let’s take care of them” campaign to provide 23,000 low-income elderly people with protective masks and disinfectants.
The HCK hopes that this action will provide additional protection against coronavirus for senior citizens.
HCK’s national logistical centre has begun distributing personal protective equipment to its regional centres, and during November and December the supplies will be delivered to beneficiaries above the age of 65 who are registered with HCK.
The association will contact its beneficiaries and inform them of where they can obtain packages with protective equipment, HCK said in a press release on Friday.
HCK executive director Robert Markt underlined that the current situation, marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, was difficult for everyone and particularly for the elderly.
“We have been assisting for months now. We are visiting them at home aware that we all have to take care of them and enable them to have good protection,” he said.
