The representatives of NBG Leasing paid a visit to the children from the Drop-in Center at Narodnih heroja Street in New Belgrade and donated much-needed clothes, school supplies and sweets.
NBG leasing wished to demonstrate its socially responsible behavior by donating clothes to homeless children without parental care. “With this initiative, we wanted to support and help the children from “Drop-in” Center, so they could have clean, necessary and appropriate clothes to wear during their common daily activities, as well as necessary school supplies.
We want to send a message that through our joint efforts we can achieve a lot for all children”, remarked NBG employees – the originators of the idea.
Over 90% of the children, staying at the “Drop-in” Center, are of Romany nationality. When it is cold, about 50 kids come to the Center on daily basis. All of them (age 4-18), need warm clothes and footwear. Over the past two years the Youth Integration Center in Belgrade have registered more than 180 children living in the streets, parks, abandoned houses and shafts.
Last year, NBG Leasing also gave personal contribution to helping and supporting the children from the Drop-in Center. The donation included clothes, school supplies and sweets.
