"No one has ever become poor by giving"
Acting upon the initiative of Asst. Prof. Dr. Altijana Hromić-Jahjaefendić, International University of Sarajevo staff and students took part in a charity event titled „Idemo na babine.“ This charity baby-shower was intended to collect essential items for babies, children and families in need throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina. During the 10 days of the drive, our staff and students donated clothes, diapers, food, baby food, toys, hygiene products as well as money contributions.
IUS staff handed over all the donations on Tuesday, September 20 to the humanitarian organization „Obraduj nekoga“ at their seat in Sarajevo. The NGO staff expressed their gratitude and underlined that the donations will be distributed all over BiH through aid packages or daily donations to families and children in need. They also pointed out to their „soup kitchen“ for children located in Bratunac and stressed that a charity phone number is available for donations at 17057 where all who want to help can donate 2 KM.
As a socially responsible institution, IUS has once again demonstrated its readiness to take part in events that foster welfare to the society because we only have what we give!
