On Sunday, September 29th, the Project HOPE team in Bosnia partnered with the Federal Institute of Public Health, Center for Healthy Aging New Sarajevo, Municipality Novo Sarajevo, Partnership for Public Health Association and Youth organization MOBA to celebrate World Heart Day. This year’s theme focused on a life-course approach to the prevention and control of cardiovascular disease with a focus on women and children. In the Center for Healthy Aging a workshop was organized for mothers and their children with demonstrations on preparing healthy food and opportunities to try some new exercises that are suitable and healthy for kids.
The main message spread to the media and public on World Heart Day was healthy children lead to healthy adults and healthy adults lead to healthy families and healthy families lead to healthy communities. Let’s organize together for a healthy environment for our children!!!!
