Fund for Supporting Victims of Disasters
In everyday life we are solving our problems, and everyday we face new ones. So it seems that we have forgotten that some events are beyond our control. At night, looking at the TV, we see floods, crashes, fires ... Then once again we say: Thanks God that this does not happen to us." We do not know what tomorrow will bring, but it is certain that if something happens there will be no time for thinking. In the event of a natural disaster seems that we should react immediately. The Earth and climate are changing every day. Thousands of years we have been ungrateful to nature and now she began to rebel.

The BRC created Fund in order to raise money to victims of disasters, accidents and catastrophes. We are not able to predict the occurrence of natural disasters, but we can help immediately. Let's do it now!

Each donated BGN can change someones destiny!
