Bravo to Istraturist who admitted people with Down syndrome to practice

first_imgThese days, four protégés of the Vinkovci association Bubamara have arrived at Umag’s Istraturist – for autumn work.In order to show that as people with Down syndrome, they are equal members of society, the Buba bar was launched in Vinkovci, which is planned to be officially opened in the spring of 2018, and this summer they received an invitation from Umag to try professional catering and achieve your right to work. The four of them will work until the end of September at the Hotel Sol Garden Istra, which the guests enthusiastically welcomed.Namely, deeply aware of the fact that most people with disabilities are unemployed or employed in lower paid occupations, and that many people with disabilities live in poverty, and those living in rural areas are particularly excluded from the labor market, Bubamara decided to do so. to change. The Buba Bar project has been established in Vinkovci, the City has provided the space, and funds still need to be raised in order for it to be arranged and fully operational. The association has 1495 members, while it is estimated that there are about 500 people with disabilities living in Croatia who want to work. “Projects like this show that this is possible and we invite other companies to get involved in providing internships and subsequent employment of people with disabilities.”, Emphasizes the director of Istraturist Ronald Korotaj.Bubamara, the Association of Persons with Disabilities, was founded in 1984 to promote equal opportunities for people with disabilities through an efficient and high-quality service system. With his initiative, he is trying to influence the change of the law on employment of persons with disabilities. By the way, the Bubamara Association delighted Croatia, but also the whole world, with a social entrepreneurship project which aims to open the first cafe in Croatia that will employ people with Down syndrome. The project called Buba bar was presented through the successfully completed Indiegogo campaign, which was declared the second most successful crowdfunding campaign in Croatia in 2016.”We want Buba Bar, the first cafe in Croatia to employ people with Down syndrome, to become a place where people with disabilities will exercise their basic right – the right to work and will have the opportunity to contribute to the community.” emphasize from the Association Bubamara, which has 1.495 members and has implemented over 150 different projects for the needs of people with disabilities in Vukovar-Srijem County.It is one of the largest civil society organizations in Croatia with more than 1400 members and more than 200 employees, including psychologists, social workers, special educators, speech therapists and is unique given the fact that it covers all types of disabilities.Bravo to Istraturist, which with its positive example shows its responsibility towards society, ie socially responsible business. How much this experience and opportunity means to people with Down syndrome cannot be described in words, but it can be seen in their eyes. I sincerely hope that other hoteliers will follow this positive example.Related news:THANK YOU VALUABLE MOVE OF THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM – HIRE PERSONS WITH DOWN SYNDROME AND THEIR BUBA BAR PROJECT FOR CATERING SERVICES  BUBA BAR, SECOND MOST SUCCESSFUL CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN IN 2016last_img read more

David Seymour introduces End of Life Choice Bill

first_img3News 14 October 2015A Bill legalising assisted dying will be introduced into the Member’s ballot by ACT leader David Seymour today.Mr Seymour says the End of Life Choice Bill is a response to the growing call for euthanasia which has gained prominence since the high-profile case of lawyer Lecretia Seales who spent her dying moments fighting for the right.It also coincides with a petition with 8975 signatures which will be presented to the Health select committee this morning.But Family First believes the Bill is premature and should wait until the inquiry he supported was completed.“Rather than a flawed euthanasia Bill which will contain the same pitfalls as Maryan Street’s earlier proposed Bill, it makes absolute sense to debate euthanasia within the wider context of the premature ending of one’s life,” national director Bob McCoskrie says.“Voluntary euthanasia has the allure of being an enlightened and compassionate response to the plight of the suffering, but its practical operation is fraught with risks and there are slippery slopes that are indeed very slippery.”A person eligible for assisted dying would:Be aged 18 or over;Suffer from a terminal illness likely to end their life within six months or have a grievous and irremediable medical condition;Be in an advanced state of irreversible decline in capability;Experience intolerable suffering;Be able to understand the nature and consequences of assisted dying.The legal process:Two medical practitioners need to be satisfied that the person meets the criteria;The person will also have to be assessed by a mental health specialist;A Support and Consultation for End of Life New Zealand Group (SCENZ) will be set up – it will maintain a list of doctors, specialists and pharmacists willing to participate in assisted dying;Medical practitioners who conscientiously object to assisted dying must refer people to SCENZ.http://www.3news.co.nz/nznews/david-seymour-introduces-end-of-life-choice-bill-2015101409#axzz3oTzKN7Lglast_img read more

The Latest: Horse racing set to resume in France on Monday Édouard de Rothschild tweeted that “the resumption of races is accepted” and thanked the French government for allowing it to go ahead.France is coming out of lockdown on Monday amid the coronavirus epidemic, with the nation confined since March 17.Races will be held at the famed Longchamp Racecourse in western Paris, which hosts the prestigious Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in the first weekend of October, and at Compiègne in northern France.___Watford chairman Scott Duxbury says at least six of the 20 English Premier League clubs are concerned about the plan to use neutral stadiums to finish the season. Associated Press Duxbury says “there is no altruism in the Premier League” and that “there are 20 different vested interests, which sometimes align but more often than not work purely to protect each individual club.”Ahead of Monday’s crunch meeting of topflight clubs, the Hornets have joined Brighton and Aston Villa in making clear their opposition to the current “Project Restart” plans.With nine rounds left, Watford is 17th in the league and looking to fight off relegation amid a challenging backdrop brought on by the coronavirus outbreak.Duxbury says “some clubs are happy to sign up to ‘Project Restart’ because arguably there is only an upside in participating in this compromised format. It means Liverpool can win the title, other clubs can book their place in Europe next season or potentially fight their way up the table from a position of safety.” But he adds “when at least six clubs – and I suspect more – are concerned about the clear downside and the devastating effects of playing in this kind of distorted nine-game mini-league, then I believe the Premier League has a duty of care to address those concerns.”last_img read more
