The Croatian Government continues to honor its commitment to provide financial assistance to Croatians in neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Contracts on financial aid from the Croatian Government for the implementation of 89 important programs for the Croat community in neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina this year were signed on Friday in the Franciscan Monastery in Tolisa near Orašje. The projects cover all aspects of daily life, including culture, education, science and health care. Government is also co-financing the renovation of the monastery.
"In each of these past four years the Croatian government has made an effort to find even more money to fund projects. But it's not just about the money. Ask any Croat here in Bosnia and Herzegovina and they'll tell you, they need to know that they haven't been abandoned and that they're not alone," said Zvonko Milas the State Secretary at the Central State Office for Croats Living Outside of Croatia.
