DPD supported humanitarian race Mliječna staza 2023.

Zagreb | September 2023 | DPD supported humanitarian race Mliječna staza 2023.

Aware that the mental health of children and young people must not remain in the silence of stigma and prejudice, DPD Croatia has decided to provide logistical support to UNICEF's humanitarian race Mliječna staza 2023.

The mental health of children and young people is crucial for their development, success in school, building relationships and quality of life. In Croatia, as many as 44,000 children and young people aged 10 to 19 have mental health problems.

To encourage positive changes, UNICEF is launching a campaign to support the mental health of children and young people, as part of which the humanitarian race Mliječna staza 2023 will be held.

This year’s race takes place from September 15 to 24, 2023, and the funds collected at the humanitarian event are intended for:

  • the education of more than 450 teachers and other educational experts to recognize mental health problems more successfully and to be the first psychological help and support for students,
  • direct work with disadvantaged students through workshops led by teachers to create a supportive school environment.
  • a program that will include more than 13,000 primary and secondary school students.

The race is being held virtually again this year, and DPD is happy to have supported UNICEF through the free delivery of start parcels for associations, schools and group participants who responded to this year’s race.

There are thousand paths, but one goal.
