Aspira College has recognized the importance of helping those who are most in need and is continuously striving to make their students socially aware and to impart fundamental human values to them in addition to the knowledge they receive during their education. This time, students of Gastronomy cooked for Association MoSt from Split and were visited by Đordana Barbarić, the president of the association.
A large number of initiatives these days are aimed for Association MoSt.
That is true and I am very happy about that, but this initiative is really special and different. Seeing young chefs in the action of preparing what is the most basic and important to us – lunch at the shelter. It’s one inspirational scene for which we thank Aspira College.
Today, all beneficiaries will enjoy a rich holiday lunch – cod.
The moment I tasted the smell as I entered Aspira College I knew it would be one delicious meal, and then I met a wonderful team of young chefs and I can only say that we were honored. But, this is not our first collaboration, Association MoSt has been collaborating with Aspira College for many years on different projects, educations and trainings – in fact, we share a lot of good things with Aspira.
Even this situation with the pandemic didn’t divert attention from helping the members of society who are most in need.
I believe that there are very few topics that did not fall into the background due to the situation with the corona crisis, but I have a feeling that all of this further encouraged us to think about how much we need each other and to realize that the behavior of each individual is the first and the most important link in a chain, whether prompted by a pandemic or, in this case, by charity work. Our phones ring every minute, we receive a very large number of requests to help in various ways, which once again proves that this city has a big heart.
The traditional charity event “A di si ti?” still had to be canceled.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel the event because of epidemiological reasons. I can’t say we’re not sorry, but I think it was the right and the most responsible decision at the moment. We are preparing something special for next year to make up for this year’s break.
In the end, I would like to thank Aspira College, its students and employees, but also the citizens of Split which all enabled our table to be full this December as well. Merry Christmas and all the best in the New 2021.
