ProCredit donated EUR 550,000 for the flood-affected region May 22, 2014

Today, the ProCredit banks in Bulgaria, Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania as well as the banks in B&H and Serbia decided to establish a special fund and to donate a total amount of EUR 550,000 to provide aid to the affected regions. This money will be channeled through the “neighbor to neighbor” initiative set up by all six banks. The ProCredit banks in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Serbia will distribute the donated funds – in the form of the humanitarian aid, such as medical and hygienic support, water and food, supportive equipment and other necessities – to the affected areas.

“It is important that the help will arrive as quickly as possible and in a supportive and practical way. This is why we have started a range of initiatives. Financial support to the flood-affected regions is only one part of it”, says Svetlana Tolmaceva, Chairperson of the Executive Board of ProCredit Bank Serbia.

“We hope that the necessary aid will quickly reach those in need. We thank the other ProCredit banks for understanding the needs of the affected people. We intend to focus first on shortages in medical supplies” said Edin Hrnjica, member of the management board of ProCredit Bank Bosnia and Herzegovina.

 

“ProCredit Bank Macedonia is involved in the initiative ,,Neighbour to neighbour”, not only as an institution, but with the employees too. Solidarity and reaction on time is the most important in this moment.” – stated Jovanka Joleska Popovska, General Manager of ProCredit Bank, Macedonia.
