In holiday spirits, the United Macedonian Diaspora (UMD) is pleased to announce a $11,500 donation of proceeds collected from the 2016 Ajvar 5K races.
This year’s Ajvar 5K’s beneficiary was Emanuil Plus, a Bitola, Macedonia-based organization providing help and services to 16-children with cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
On December 28, 2016, UMD’s New Jersey Regional Representative and Ajvar 5K Project Coordinator Ana Dukoska, who is in Macedonia for the holidays, visited Bitola, and presented the $11,500 check to Emanuil Plus President Beti Bulakovska.
Over the course of two days, Dukoska met with all children of the organization and delivered aid packages to each family, including Christmas gift bags for each child. The packages included winter blanket, pillow and bedding, pajamas, tracksuits, set of 3 T-shirts, underwear, towels, socks, toiletries, vouchers for food products and a voucher for diapers.
