"With the campaign "Show That We Care" together with our partners, we decided to reach out to all the Safe Houses in BiH that provide individual support to victims of domestic violence. Our goal is to raise awareness of Safe Houses and the role of women in modern society, and to encourage and delight the beneficiaries on this day. Our customers have felt the need to work together with us and our partners to participate in this campaign, with which we celebrate women, "said Amna Džambić, from the marketing service of Bingo.
“On behalf of the beneficiaries of the Safe House, victims of domestic violence, I express gratitude to Bingo and partners for this humane gesture, for making this a beautiful day. Bingo has once again proven corporate social responsibility and the act of their donations to the Safe Houses will draw the attention of society to the very significant problem of domestic violence in our country. Violence against women is not only a women's issue. Through joint actions and the work of all of us, we can influence the raising of the level of citizen's awareness through advocating zero tolerance to this violence of BECAUSE WE CARE,“ said Mubera Hodžić-Lemeš, Manager of Safe House in Sarajevo.
