The traditional humanitarian aid “Ornaments of Good Wishes” began in Rijeka. Citizens donate HRK 30 by purchasing one of 500 baubles in which they put their Christmas message or wish and place it on the big Christmas tree on Korzo, reports hrt.hr.
The decoration of the Christmas tree on Rijeka’s Korzo attracts a large number of citizens.
Everyone writes their wish. The piece of paper was too small for Robert to write everything he wanted, but he managed. For years, he says, he has been trying to participate in this humanitarian aid.
“I know that the aid is of a humanitarian nature and I like it very much. I’ve been participating for several years.” – Robert said.
Biotechnology students of the University of Rijeka are responsible for the organization.
“This is our seventh year. This year, we are collecting aid for the Lighthouse Association, which deals with children with developmental disabilities.” – emphasized Marta Bučić, a biotechnology student.
Traditionally, the first ornament is bought by the mayor of Rijeka. It was the same this morning. He hopes for the development of the city in the new year, and wishes the citizens a lot of health and happiness.
