The children's village in Ladimirevci was established many years ago and currently looks after around 80 children, who are lovingly cared for in 16 children's village families. The institution offers children a real home and allows them a child-fair development within a family environment. When the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation and Lyoness Croatia learnt that the children's village urgently needed 47 new beds, slatted frames and mattresses, as the old ones had been in use for over 20 years, they immediately decided to join forces and offer help. At the Lyconet Elite Seminar with Eric Worre, a call for donations was therefore made and many from our Community were ready and willing to help this and two other projects of the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation with extremely generous contributions.
Together with those in charge of the children's home, the exact requirements for the beds were defined, offers from Lyoness Loyalty Merchants were obtained, a date was fixed and with the help of numerous volunteers from the Lyoness and Lyconet Community in Croatia the beds were finally assembled and put together.
On the 10th of June the stage was set: Over 30 voluntary helpers as well as several Lyoness Croatia employees and the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation came together to fulfil their promise. With the children's help the beds were put up in record time. Furthermore, a barbecue was organised for all participants who were able to relax and enjoy the day after all the hard work was completed. This opportunity was used to gift the children with presents, such as three much needed School Starter Kits as well as four footballs.
The director of the children's village brought the evening to a close with the following words "This was an extraordinary day on which much was accomplished. Together we were able to create something amazing and also have fun while doing it. I wish everyone who has participated in this project all the best and would like to thank them on behalf of the children for their brilliant help."
We would like to say a special thank you to the following Loyalty Merchants, Members and voluntary helpers for their support on this project:

The aim of this project was to organize 47 new beds and 50 mattresses for the children of the children's village in Ladimirevci, in order to grant them hygienic and appropriate sleeping conditions and to help promote and improve their physical development. Furthermore, three children were presented with a new School Starter Kit to help them with the start of the next school year. Four children, who wanted nothing more than a ball, were gifted with brand new footballs.
