About Projekt Duga

Projekt Duga means: Project Rainbow where the rainbow represents the sign of a friendship alliance as we encountered with Noah after the flood. Our project is located in the "Kordun" (former Krajina), an abandoned region in the interior of Croatia, close to the border with Bosnia. The region is characterized by the presence of minorities: Serbian returnees, Croatian Muslims and Croats who fled from Bosnia after the war. It is a forgotten region. In everything a great challenge to work on reconciliation and a friendship alliance. The project has been active since May 1999 and focuses on single elderly people and children and young people.

The project has its own camping area and can accommodate 30 to 40 people, has 3 camping cabins with 5 beds each, some caravans, a simple kitchen and café in a stable ("Café Bethlehem"). The camping site is maintained by the local youth and children of "De Leeuwenend" and by the groups that come to visit us.

History

Projekt Duga started in 1999 as an initiative of Dutch and Croatian volunteers from different churches. At the moment the project is mainly supported by the Evangelical Congregation Jonah in Ede, but volunteers are participants from different (types of) churches.

Wanted support for the bus

The bus is broken ....

The bus is broken. The Opel Vivaro, which we have used a lot since 2009 (30,000 km per year, so the counter is now at 398,000 km). It is the only means of transport we have as a project and is therefore indispensable.

New engine

Fortunately, we found a way to fix it. Another motor comes in. In addition, a new timing belt and water pump and we will probably also replace the clutch set. 1500 euros is needed for this job. And then we can drive children with it for several years, do shopping with Christmas packages, drive back and forth to Croatia, lend volunteers to drive back and forth, visit the elderly and organize summer camps by the sea. It is worth it to us.

Support

But of course a car costs more. Fortunately, this is not so bad for this Croatian bus. Road tax and insurance cost us 550 Euro per year (in the Netherlands we would pay 4 times). To keep this bus on the road for another 5 years in the service of Projekt Duga, we are looking for sponsors. Do you want to join?
