International Volunteer Day celebration

Happy International Volunteer Day!

On the 5th of December, we celebrated the International Volunteer Day in Hotel Park, next to Bačvice beach in Split. It was a big event organised by Udruga „MI“ – Split and many volunteers and volunteer organisations got rewarded for their great work and active participation.

The „Vinka Luković“ prize went to Udruga Caspera, an association that helps women who are/were fighting breast cancer. Udruga mladih Ahimsa, a young association from Zadar, got an award for special contribution to the development of volunteerism in 2022. The „Davor Belaić“ prize went to Martina Mršić and the award for special contribution to the development of volunteerism in educational institutions in 2022 went to Mirjana Mamić. Last but not least, the posthumous award for outstanding contribution to the promotion and development of volunteering went to Sanja Puharić from Makarska.

Every year, someone performs the Croation song „Ljubav sve pozlati“ by Petar Grašo on the International Volunteer Day. This year, it was my task. I played the guitar and sang and it was a really beautiful moment because when I started the refrain, people started to sing along. What a successful celebration of our amazing volunteers and volunteer organisations!
