The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., in cooperation with Society for Support of Young Roma, Soc. Ent., organized collecting of waste paper for Tim Bučar.

At the Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., we have already cooperated with Tim Bučar last year in the final conference of the project Fair Employment – Youth with Less Opportunites with the Help of Youth Work to First Job. In a two-day-long event, Tim fried pancakes right out of his three-wheeled bike. Tim actively collects paper, scrap metal and empty car batteries, which help him collect resources for his therapies. He needs 2.400 Euros a year.

Thus we have decided to help him collect paper between 5th and 15th April 2019, we will be collecting waste paper, commericals, newspapers, magazines etc. at the Roma Station, at Preradovičeva 1 in Maribor. The action will take place every workday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m..

Briefly about Tim’s disease and his activities:

In Slovenia there are only 9 people with a rare genetic disease, Apert Syndrome. The most notable symptome of the given syndrome is the change in the development of the skull an facial bones. Tim has had 15 major surgeries. His life depended on the operation of the skull, where bones have grown together, as his brain otherwise couldn’t have fully developed. Another such operation was the one where they have implanted a drainage tube which drains extra liquor from his brain to the stomach area. Tim enjoys making pancakes at various events. He also likes to prepare smoothies, mow the lawn and other stuff.

How can you help Tim?

Tim is accepting donations on the transaction account ZAVOD ODPRTE KARTE, KEKČEVA 22, 1000 LJUBLJANA. TR of the zavod ZOK: SI56 6100 0001 1882 265; he also collects waste paper, scrap metal and used batteries.
