Support to floods affected communities

During May 2014 floods befell Serbia and many local communities were in danger. Trag Foundation reacted promptly and supported civil society organizations that actively helped in recovery of flood affects. Also, Trag has redirected the purpose of its account for "general support" and donations collected through this account were used to support local organizations involved in cleaning and recovery of endangered communities.
Thanks to Trag's commitment, 66 individuals and civil society organizations (Civic Initiatives, Heartefact Foundation, Pontis Foundation), companies (Smokvica mb, and institutional donors (Balkan Trust for Democracy, the Rockefeller Northers Fund, and Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic) have donated funds for support to affected communities in the amount of  4.812.898,36 RSD.
