Israeli Organization Helps 28. Jun Realize Massive Humanitarian Project
“The Serbian and Jewish peoples have shared a long history of oppression and persecution. We’ve shared the horror of the Jasenovac concentration camp.” -Michael Dickson
28. Jun today announced the successful completion of a 4-year long initiative to deliver humanitarian and medical supplies to the Western Balkans.
The final delivery was made possible by a generous donation from the Israeli advocacy organization StandWithUs. Since 2011, 28. Jun successfully completed 5 projects which encompassed 22 deliveries of aid to Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Kosovo. The aid was transported from North America via ship and from Western and Central Europe via truck. “The Serbian and Jewish peoples have shared a long history of oppression and persecution. We’ve shared the horror of the Jasenovac concentration camp. Now, free in our homelands, Serbia and Israel have the opportunity to share a thriving future. On behalf of the Israeli people, StandWithUs is proud to contribute toward Serbian flood relief in the hopes of continuing and growing our historical friendship,” said Michael Dickson, StandWithUs Director.
