Easter is a time when we need to think about each other, and most of all about the children. In order to brighten up this different Easter, exactly three months after the devastating earthquake in Petrinja, the Lumini center prepared numerous surprises for them.
Three months have passed since a strong earthquake measuring 6.2 with the epicenter hit Petrinja and its surroundings. Then the whole of Croatia joined forces and each of us gave what he could: from goods, blankets, helping hands, cleaning, raising funds for caravans or providing accommodation to our fellow citizens who lost so much in so little time .
As Easter is approaching, in the Lumini Shopping Center we decided to cheer up the youngest people from Petrinja and make their holidays a little better. There is nothing more beautiful than a sincere smile on a child’s face and that is why we have prepared many surprises for them.
Therefore, on behalf of the Lumini Shopping Center, Ana Morpurgo, center manager, and Jelena Varga, marketing coordinator, on Monday, March 29 at 10 am in the yard of the Petrinjčica Kindergarten, in compliance with all epidemiological measures, handed over a donation worth HRK 46,215, which was fully purchased in the stores of the Lumini Shopping Center.
“We were all shaken up on December 29 last year, and it’s hard to imagine what it was like in Petrinja. We were looking for a way to make life at least a little easier for the earthquake-stricken population. We have concluded that at this moment, there is no better way than to bring smiles to the faces of small, brave people”, said Ana Morpurgo.
While we believe that donated electronics, toys, bedding and hygiene items will enhance their stay in their kindergarten, we know that they need love, attention and a safe home the most. In the hope of a better future, we want to wish all the people of Petrinja a happy Easter and say that it will always be in our thoughts.
