Mayor of Lukavac Edin Delić cancelled the New Year fireworks in that town. Instead, the Municipality will buy New Year gifts for all children in Lukavac.
Lukavac is the second municipality in BiH which redirected the funds intended for New Year celebration to other purposes. First, the Mayor of Kakanj Nermin Mandra redirected around 8.000 BAM intended for the New Year celebration to the treatment of an ill boy from Kakanj.
“We decided to reduce the amount of money for the traditional fireworks in Lukavac for New Year. Although there will be some rockets and pyrotechnics, we redirected the majority of the funds to those who are looking forward to the holidays the most – children,” said Delić.
At the premises of the House of Culture a theatre play for all first grade students from the territory of Lukavac will be held, and little visitors will also receive gifts.
On the same day, gifts will be given to children whose families receive social aid, as well as children in “The Little World”, an organization that cares about children with autism.
On the last day of December, a New Year carriage will drive through the city and make the atmosphere even more festive.
