As a company, we wanted to express solidarity and responsibility towards the community and that is why, in line with the needs and recommendations of the Red Cross, we have allocated the type of assistance that is most needed at this moment”, announced Jugopetrol AD.

“The Red Cross Montenegro is very grateful to Jugopetrol AD for the overall cooperation and response to this unfortunate situation, which was a challenge to the whole society and us. Such partners facilitate our action and response to greater humanitarian needs that our citizens had in this period. Many families throughout Montenegro still need our support and donations from Jugopetrol AD will help us to provide them with better humanitarian aid”, announced the Red Cross.
