Croatia to provide €5.6m to Bosnia to fight COVID-19

ZAGREB, April 9 (Hina) – Croatia’s government on Thursday decided to provide financial assistance in the amount of HRK 43 million for Bosnia and Herzegovina’s healthcare system during the COVID-19 epidemic.

The State Secretary of the Central State Office for Croats Abroad, Zvonko Milas, said that the decision was good as this aid would help not only Bosnia and Herzegovina but also Croatia to fight the novel coronavirus.

“Croats live along our 1,000-kilometre-long border with Bosnia and Herzegovina, and by helping them we also help ourselves,” Milas told reporters after the government’s meeting.

Of this amount, 40 million will be provided through Croatia’s health ministry for the procurement of medicines and medical material, while three million will be sent to Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina through the Central State Office for Croats Abroad.
