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.


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.

Written by  Sunday, 19 December 2021 22:49

Also this year we would very much like to distribute 20 Christmas packages to the single elderly and the families we know in Croatia and Bosnia. Every year I forget to ask for donations in advance because of the hustle and bustle of work and life in the Netherlands, but every year it eventually works out. Here's the info:

  • Wanted: donations for 20 Christmas packages
  • Cost: 25 euros per package
  • In Croatia we do the shopping for the packages
  • We make it 20 beautiful packages
  • We have a list of well-known elderly people and families that we would like to give a package
  • If you are interested, please contact Meindert Jorna via WhatsApp (06 41286716) or via Facebook (Messenger, see bottom right) or via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - Then we know for how many packages we can ultimately go shopping.
