Players and the national team headquarters have decided, being aware of the situation in Croatia, but also the entire world, caused by the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the strongest earthquake in Zagreb in the last 140 years, to gather funds together for the fight against the coronavirus and to repair damages to the Petrova hospital.
On Thursday the official website of the Croatian Basketball Federation announced that they have paid more than two million kuna to the cause.
“It is our desire to provide support to the currently most sensitive part of the healthcare sector, so that patients and medical staff who in this crisis are on the front lines of defence will be cared for. We started this drive with hope that we can aid in the fight against the coronavirus, but also in reconstruction and repair to the Petrova hospital building. We also want to aid in the purchase of needed devices, medicines and everything expert personnel consider to be a priority. Although we are currently not together physically, our hearts are in the same place with Croatia and Zagreb,” said the national team players and staff.
Numerous national team players took part in the drive, some former players as well as members of the staff. No one wanted to be mentioned individually by name so that the drive itself and desire to assist those most in need remains in the forefront.
