Cause Profile
Peace group Oasis Beli Manastir, non-governmental, non-profit and non-partisan organization from Beli Manastir, Croatia is established in 1997. Since then, it has consistently worked to improve the quality of life of people in Baranja through educational, social and environmental programs, and the development of non-profit entrepreneurship and volunteerism.
Over ten thousand people in Baranja were or are users of Oasis's activities. During the past years, Peace group Oaza carried out 104 projects and through them Oaza brought to Baranja over 6,000,000 HRK or 800,000 Euros. Thanks to that dedicated work, life is much easier for many people in impoverished Baranja. That is why Peace Group Oasis was awarded with the Charter of the Town for 2012 by the Town Council of Beli Manastir.

Help elderly and disabled people in Beli Manastir
Osječko-Baranjska County, including Beli Manastir is an area with a large number of unemployed people. The war that hit this area left a lot of consequences in material and psychological terms. That doesn't contribute to the restoration of life, even for young people, let alone for elderly. There are a lot of people living on welfare, and those who have no income and living alone.
From 2003 Oaza has continuously carried out the Program of providing social services for elderly and disabled people.

Osječko-baranjska županija, pa tako i Beli Manastir je područje s velikim brojem nezaposlenih. Na tim područjima bio je rat, koji je za sobom ostavio pustoš kako u materijalnom, tako i u psihološkom pogledu. To ne doprinosi obnovi života, ni mladih, a pogotovo starih osoba. Ima jako puno osoba koje žive na socijalnoj skrbi, a i onih koji nemaju nikakva primanja i žive sami.

"Oaza" ovaj program pružanja socijalnih usluga starim i nemoćnim osobama provodi kontinuirano od 2003. godine. Besplatna podjela toplih obroka je inovativan oblik socijalne usluge starim, nemoćnim i socijalno ugroženim osobama i počeo se primjenjivati od 2010. godine uz pomoć Ministarstva zdravstva i socijalne skrbi i Grada Belog Manastira.
Ciljevi programa:
