Donations for Mizia

Following a large-scale catastrophic flooding of the town of Mizia, WiN-Bulgaria was among the first to join the collecting of donations to assist the affected population. The town of Mizia is situated close to Kozloduy NPP, within about 20-km distance. The initiative started on the 4th of August and our Kozloduy members were the first to respond. The cash they collected was donated to the Mizia municipality. The Sofia and the Belene sections of the organisation followed suit. Further aid contributed consisted of foods, clothing, etc. materials and products.

WiN-Bulgaria initiated and held an enlarged meeting of representatives of the two associations: Women in Nuclear - Bulgaria, and Veterans in Nuclear - Bulgaria, and the Bulgarian Nuclear Society to consider further distress recovery actions. The current situation in Mizia was discussed as well as the organising of participation in activities to mitigate the disastrous consequences.

A decision was taken to initiate a long-term campaign:

"FOR MIZIA - OUR JOINED EFFORTS WILL HELP MORE”

Places were identified where cash collection boxes can be allocated. By 28 August the sum of BGN1542 was collected, which has been spent specifically for the needs of the distressed.

WiN-Bulgaria extends its sincere thanks to all who have made donations for Mizia!
