Burns Night to Raise Money for SOS Children’s Village in Croatia

burnsBurns Night 2015 in Zagreb to raise money for SOS Children’s Village charity….

The SOS Children’s Village project operates across the globe, helping those young who have – for one reason or another – found themselves without parents or parental care, with no bias given to race, nationality, or creed. First established in the aftermath of the Second World War, the project has sought to alleviate the suffering of those who are the victims of wars which they did not begin, or of social circumstances which they had no part in creating.

Today there are over 530 villages worldwide, and over 2300 supporting facilities. The SOS Children’s Village has been active in Croatia since the early days of the Homeland War, helping those who lost family and those who were displaced by the conflict.

Burns Night 2015 is a gala event being organised by members of British House, the Esplanade Hotel, and the United Kingdom Friendship Society, and with the kind media support of Croatia Week and Soundset Plavi. It will be held on the night of January 17th, 2015, and will be an evening of feasting, drinking, and dancing.
