By handing over the donation to URI - Soča we pointed out the consequences of careless use of pyrotechnics

12. April 2019

We at the NLB believe that pyrotechnics are not necessary for a good party - namely, they can have severe consequences for both people and animals, which is why we have been supporting the “Firecrackers? No, thank you!” campaign for years. This April we donated funds to the department for rehabilitation after amputation in URI Soča to upgrade the message and help those who speak of the dangers of pyrotechnics from own experience.

The University Rehabilitation Institute - Soča used funds collected in our branch offices to purchase new equipment for physical and occupational therapy.

"With the NLB's donation the physical and occupational therapy section of the rehabilitation after amputation department purchased devices that will help patients improve their physical functions and strengthen their psychophysical condition. They will help patients towards successful rehabilitation and faster recovery and return to active life" said Prof. dr. Helena Burger, MD, Medical Director of URI - Soča and head of the rehabilitation after amputation department after receiving the donation.

"The NLB decided to donate funds to URI - Soča because we wish to contribute to more efficient rehabilitation treatment of injuries caused by pyrotechnics. We are pleased that the clients in our branch offices helped us raise funds and thus expressed their support to the purpose, namely to reduce the use of pyrotechnics at celebrations or to ensure that they are used in a responsible manner," said Blaž Brodnjak, President of the Management Board of NLB d.d. when handing over the donation.
