Cooperation with the Bulgarian Red Cross
The Foundation funded a summer camp in the training facility of the Bulgarian Red Cross in the village of Lozen with the participation of 67 children from the Nadezhda boarding school and the home for parentless children “Sveti Ivan Rilski” in Sofia. In the middle of the summer of 2001 on the initiative of the Bulgarian Red Cross and with the support of the Foundation, a summer camp was organized in the resort Tuzlata near Balchik for 100 disabled children. The Foundation also supported the organization of blood donor campaign by the National Center for Transfusion Haematology, the Bulgarian Red Cross and various students’ organizations. With the support of the Center for the Study of Democracy we provided more than 1000 textbooks (donated by the USA) for the students who gave blood. Our cooperation is still ongoing, and the Bulgarian Red Cross is a strategic partner of ours.
