8th Krka's Week of Charity and Volunteering

"It makes me happy if I can help others and make them happy. Good deeds enrich my life. They make me feel good about myself, giving me extra energy and strength."This is how Betka Luštek, Krka's 2018 Volunteer of the Year describes being a volunteer. This noble thought will guide Krka employees between 8-13 April as they work together to help those in need during 8th Krka's Week of Charity and Volunteering.

Anyone can be a volunteer - you just need a big, open heart. Over the seven years of Krka's Week of Charity and Volunteering we have engaged in 7,081 acts of charity, gathered 23 tons of clothes, food, books, toys, personal items and other necessities for the Red Cross and Karitas organisations, donated 800 litres of blood and received numerous expressions of gratitude. Compassion and solidarity are still highly favoured by Krka employees. This year we will once again donate our time to a good cause, providing material and non-material goods to those in need.

Each minute of your time, or an item of clothing or a food parcel you donate will be greatly appreciated. A kind word and a grateful smile you get in return will make you realise you did the right thing by becoming a Krka volunteer.
