Volunteers of NGO Our action visited the Retirement home in Bijelo polje on Saturday, March 23rd and spend the day with the senior citizens of the home. This is our yearly traditional visit to the home and it is a true pleasure for the residence as well as our volunteers to spend time together talking, laughing and reminising. NGO Our action signed a agreement of cooperation with the home already in 2017 and this way we are also getting people from Kotor and Bijelo Polje together. The agreement focuses on a better environment and living conditions for retirees which is something in prevous years we work on together by cleaning and planting the area around the home.
