- Further steps
The SOLIDARNA Foundation and Index promocija d.o.o. are in contact with the legal guardians of Gabrijela K. who are currently in the process of opening a giro account in Gabrijela’s name in a bank in the Republic of Croatia, after which a donation contract will be signed and a part of the funds will be transferred to Garijela’s account.
Index promocija d.o.o. have been looking into the possibility of investing a section of the gathered means into an investment fund, the proceeds of which would become available to Gabrijela upon her coming of legal age. Any decision on investing into the fund will be made in agreement with the legal guardians.
