The emigrant gathering in Dubrovnik draws many ethnic Croatians from around the world
For over ten years now the Dubrovnik branch office of the Croatian Heritage Foundation has staged a gathering of Croatian emigrants – this year the event was hosted by the Orsan restaurant.
The project has been a channel for emigrants in New York with roots in Dubrovnik to offer assistance to their native region, providing monetary aid to the sick and to the destitute and participating in the renovation of churches in Dubrovnik and nearby Ston.
The gathering of emigrants brings together ethnic Croatians from around the world. Besides the humanitarian aspect of the event, it is also an opportunity to socialise, meet, exchange experiences, build collaborative efforts and for Croatian emigrants to meet with the representatives of municipal and county institutions.
