World Autism Awareness Day is celebrated on April 2nd, and on that occasion blue balloons from Luza were released by Dubrovnik Mayor Mato Frankovic and Deputy Mayor Jelka Tepsic. They were joined by the commander of the Dubrovnik Fire Department and the Chief of the Civil Protection Staff Stjepko Krilanovic and the County Fire Commander Stjepan Simovic.
While drawing attention to all the challenges of life with autism, City and Staff leaders once again sent a message to the public - Stay Home.
Although traditionally throughout Croatia April 2nd is marked by various events and the traditional release of blue balloons in city squares, this year, due to the special measures because of the coronavirus, there were no such manifestations.
-When the quarantine is over, remember our isolation - said the Autism Association of Croatia, among other things, on the occasion of this year's World Autism Awareness Day.
