About The Croatian House Association:

The Croatian House Association was created with the purpose of providing a "home away from home" for families of the seriously ill receiving treatment in the University of Padova Hospital in Padova, Italy. Patients come from countries with underdeveloped health care systems such as Croatia and other Eastern European countries.

Championed by renowned Croatian surgeon and humanitarian, Dr. Nela Srsen, the Croatian House in Padova will provide a much needed temporary residence near the University of Padova Hospital facilities for family members of the critically ill. The residence will also house medical students and other health care professionals, from south-east Europe, for educational purposes so as to give them the skills and knowledge to care for patients back home.

The Croatian House Association has received the direct support of the President of Croatia, Stjepan Mesic as well as numerous famed international celebrities and political dignitaries.

Dr. Nela Sren
Potovani,

obraam Vam se sa zamolbom da pomognete u ostvarivanju jednog projekta, jednog sna koji ve dugo godina dijelim s mnogim teko bolesnim pacijentima iz Hrvatske koji me mole za pomo i koji dolaze na lijeenje u Sveuilinu bolnicu u Padovi, ve vie od desetljea.

"Hrvatska kua" je humanitarna udruga iji je trenutni projekt kupnja jedne kue u Padovi u Italiji koja bi bila namijenjena boravku hrvatskih graana u tekim situacijama odlaska na lijeenje u stranu zemlju, koje esto puta zna biti dugotrajno.

ZATO?

Uvijek inim sve to mogu za svoj narod i dalje inim ono to se ini nemoguim, ali bolesniku se ne smije odbiti pomo, pogotovo kad su u pitanju djeca. Mnogi moji pacijenti su siromani i uvijek nalazim neki nain da se pokriju trokovi lijeenja, meutim ostaje veliki problem smjetaja u Padovi za vrijeme boravka na lijeenju. Noenje u Padovi je skupo, a ja ne mogu sve pacijente smjestiti u svojoj ili kuama svojih prijatelja. Pacijenata iz Hrvatske je sve vie, nekada i po 15 odjednom, a neki se odlue za spavanje u autima ili ljeti na klupama kao jedino rjeenje. Nemaju se gdje niti presvui niti oprati, nemaju novca za jelo u restoranima, nemaju si gdje neto skuhati, a cijeli dan potom provode uz svoje najmilije u bolnici...

KAKO NAM MOETE POMOI?

Svaki, pa i najmanji, prilog nam je znaajan. Mnoge osobe iz javnog ivota prikljuile su se naoj akciji, pa e se uskoro odrati mnogi humanitarni dogaaji. Na web stranici, www.hrvatskakuca.hr moete dobiti uvid u sve podatke vezane za "HRVATSKU KUU". Moete se ulaniti (pristupnica na web stranici, lanarina 100 kn) i pridonijeti dobrovoljnom uplatom ili donatorskim prilogom.

Najljepe Vam se zahvaljujem,

Dr. Nela Sren
predsjednica Udruge "Hrvatska kua"
