Philanthropy in the region: Introducing Republic of Kosovo

Kosovars have a well-grounded history philanthropic work. Over the years the work has changed in shapes and sizes but the essence of improving the lives of others has remained intact. The solidarity and warmness that the Kosovar community has for its fellow men has been a part of its past and continues to be a part of its future. This generosity was clearly demonstrated during the recent extremely cold winter days in Europe. During these snowy days, we experienced how individuals and companies mobilized themselves to plow snow, open up the roads and help those in need. After all, that’s the municipalities’ job but individuals acted as an extended arm to local authorities.
