A small family business in the Australian capital Canberra which serves Croatian-style donuts has touched hearts downunder after a story made the national news.
Krofne, named after the Croatian donuts ‘krofne’, gives paid employment opportunities to teenagers and young adults with special needs.
The workers with disabilities are involved in preparing the donuts which are made from a family recipe from Croatia.
Krofne owner Danijela Vrkić says the workers are just as reliable and capable as any other employee.
“They just don’t get a fair chance, and we want to provide that opportunity for them”, she told 9 News.
