S obzirom na novonastalu situaciju u vezi sa pandemijom koronavirusa (COVID-19) i činjenicom da bi Konjic mogao postati novi epicentar u Bosni i Hercegovini, te s obzirom na to da u bolnici nema još uvijek osposobljen odjel za smještaj ovakvih pacijenata, kao ni adekvatnu opremu i sredstva pokrećemo ovu akciju za donaciju novčanih sredstava za nabavku opreme i/ili dr. potrebnih materijala u cilju što efikasnije borbe protiv koronavirusa. Također, Dom zdravlja Konjic, koji je trenutno “prva linija odbrane” se nalazi u veoma teškoj finansijskoj situaciji, te će prikupljena sredstva biti raspoređena prema potrebama Doma zdravlja i Opće bolnice Konjic. Upravo danas, u Konjicu je potvrđen prvi smrtni slučaj kao posljedica koronavirus. Prikupljanjem sredstava na ovaj način, svi možemo dati svoj dio i pružiti prijeko potrebnu podršku i pomoć.
Appeal for help and donations for the Health Center & Hospital in Konjic in the fight against the COVID-19 virus pandemic
In consideration of the evolving situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and the fact that the City of Konjic could become the new epicenter for COVID-19 in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and given the fact that the hospital does not yet have a ward to accommodate such patients, nor adequate equipment or funds, we have initiated this action to donate funds to purchase equipment and/or other materials needed to combat the corona virus as efficiently as possible. Also, the Konjic Health Center, which is currently the “first line of defense”, is in a very difficult financial situation, and the funds raised will be allocated between the needs of the Konjic Health Center and the Hospital. Just today, the first coronavirus death has been confirmed in Konjic. By raising funds this way, we can all give our part and provide much needed support and assistance to those in need.
My name is Jana Junuz. I was born in Konjic, at the aforementioned Konjic hospital. I currently reside in the United States, where I practice law as an immigration attorney in the State of New York. This campaign was important to me because my entire family resides in the small town of Konjic and in recent times this town has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases. Medical resources are scarce and medical personnel are not properly equipped to deal with this epidemic. All funds raised will be donated to the Health Center and Konjic hospital via their bank account, so that they can obtain the necessary equipment to deal with the COVID-19 epidemic.
