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.

Mission trip Croatia 2019

After successful Mission Trip 2018, preparations for Mission Trip 2019 are in full swing.

Soon after coming home in 2018, it was clear that the group of young people who had been to Croatia at the time was looking forward to going on a Mission trip in 2019 as well. Time flies and summer is just around the corner. With regard to the preparations for Mission Trip 2019, we have already come a long way and we have a group of 12 to 15 young people / teenagers who want to travel together. Their plans:

  • A good and pleasant time together
  • Visiting people
  • Get to know the environment further
  • Two days to the sea together
  • Day in Zagreb
  • Visit to the Bosnian market
  • Lots of swimming together
  • DIY - refurbishing the camping area and especially "Café Bethlehem".

With regard to the latter, we want to try to replace the roof of Cafe Bethlehem with this group. Five years ago the roof collapsed because of the amount of snow. The roof has been put back but is now "up". Roof tiles are porous, roof can no longer be made leak-proof and is also crooked. As a result, the roof does not connect to the new (class) room and we cannot finish that because we now also have continuous leakage. We need materials to replace the roof, and those materials cost money. About 1800 euros. We have created a project at: https://supp.to/projekt-duga and through that link we are looking for donors. Besides making a donation, you can also share the link within your own network. Thanks in advance.
