Once again the citizens of Dubrovnik have gathered together as one in support of a good cause. Yesterday on the Stradun hundreds of people collected as they responded to a humanitarian action to raise funds for children with disabilities. The action was aimed at raising awareness of the problems that people with disabilities face in today’s world and was organised by the Dubrovnik society “Dva Skalina.”
Sports clubs, war veterans, associations, firefighters, police, artists, musicians, tour guides, in fact people from every walk of life came together in the centre of the Old City of Dubrovnik yesterday.
