In 2016 we started a PR campaign. We involved Sandra Paović who was a former Croatian table tennis champion representing Croatia at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, had an almost fatal car accident in Paris in 2009 which left her without the use of her legs. She made amazing recovery which culminated in her returning to her beloved sport and being crowned the new World Para Table Tennis champion in China in 2014. Through PR campaign we will increase the visibility of project “Free loan of medical and orthopaedic aids” and the number of existing donations. Also, we will try to change negative attitudes towards persons with disability.
