Eighth Prize award for the best volunteer in Zagreb was held at the Old City Hall and the winner is a long-time volunteer of Brave Phone Matej Ilic Buljan. This decision was made by citizens who had the opportunity to vote from 30 January to 19 February 2017 electronically on the website of the Volunteer Center Zagreb, in the office of Volunteer Centre or sending their votes by mail.
"I really do not have enough words to thank you for everything you did today. One of the most common questions I got is why I volunteer. I volunteer to be there for others and to leave the mark in the world. I do not need awards, I do not need recognition, the only acknowledgment I needed was from my dear coordinators of the Brave Phone. I'm glad my parents were here and that this is maintained in the room where they were married" said Matej Ilic Buljan when receiving the award.
