Udruga MOST (The BRIDGE Association) and the Solidarity Supermarket

Split, Croatia
MOST Association is a non-governmental organization based in Split which promotes the values of volunteer work, humanity, solidarity, respect for diversity and human rights, and provides concrete help to those in need with a view to increasing the quality of life for vulnerable people, and fighting against poverty and social exclusion. It works through four programs:

Support Centre for Children and Youth with Behavioural Problems
Research Centre for Social Inclusion and Poverty Alleviation
Program for the Promotion and Development of Youth Volunteer Work
Care Centre for the Homeless

MOST (Croatian for bridge) believes in the values of solidarity and respect for diversity and human rights, and in providing concrete and immediate help to those in need in the community, thus bridging between the world of ideals and the current state of living conditions in Split. For example, in addition to undertaking research and advocacy work on behalf of the homeless, MOST runs a homeless shelter in collaboration with the City of Split, with programs, activities and workshops designed to help integrate homeless people into society. MOST also coordinates the network of Croatian homeless and a website where they can access important information, both practical and policy-related, and share their stories and experiences with each other and the world.

In 2015, MOST opened the doors to its “social solidarity supermarket” aptly named Solidarity which provides free food to the hungry citizens of Split. The motto of the supermarket is “Nobody hungry in Split”.
