Dear friends of Ana Rukavina Foundation, We wish you a sincere and warm welcome to our WEB page www.zaklada-ana-rukavina-hr.!
During the past few months we have traveled throughout Croatia and kept you company. We have visited over 40 towns and held more than 60 actions of public information and blood sample collections for tissue-typisation. We have come to know a great deal of beautiful places; They all have in common thousands of wonderful inhabitants. Owing to generosity and voluntary work of numerous local organizers as well as special contribution of each donor, we can all say that we have achieved a great miracle in this small country of ours. The number of voluntary donors has increased from 150 to over 20.000. During this time we have had regular inflow of money – payments from individuals and companies who have decided to support our work. From the first 50 kuna paid on Ana’s account in Vukovar in November to payments received today, we have continuously collected money; we try to have minimum operational costs in order to use the money you have donated for collected sample typisation, as well as purchase of necessary medical appliances for the Croatian register of voluntary bone marrow donors and Umbilical Cord Bank ‘Ana Rukavina’. Each contribution, and we mean each kuna is equally valid to us, so we sincerely thank all of you; we take a vow to work honorably, conscientiously and diligently for the benefit of all Croatian citizens. It is what we, Ana’s family and friends, have promised Ana and are promising you.
We cordially thank all those who have been by our side during the past seven months, helping us unselfishly and donating their time, work or money to make this Foundation live. Our success is your success.
Each person has a face and a name for Ana Rukavina Foundation.
We cordially wish you all the best in your private and business life and invite you to continue with us in this project which will save a lot of those who desire life, as initiated by Ana and guided by human solidarity.
With special respect and gratitude,
Marija Rukavina and Ana’s friends
