About Our Auction
We are raising funds for the Humanitarian Organisation Duga - Vukovar - www. duga-vukovar.hr
Duga Vukovar was founded back in 2013 and has had a long tradition of workshops, programs and projects that would engage the most vulnerable members of our society, be it through education, financial support or by providing a place to enjoy some much-needed friendly company while expressing ones' creativity. Duga Vukovar exists to remind us that there are still many who have not been able to live their full potential.
