28. Jun is an international humanitarian organization in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC).
Founded in 2012, to date the Not-For-Profit has delivered 184 tons of humanitarian, medical and disaster relief aid worth over $6.1 mil to the Western Balkans.
We appraise the effectiveness of our work by the number of people we help and how their needs are met over a prolonged period.
Our first step is to identify neglected regions and establish contact with reputable local institutions to facilitate the distribution of aid. Once the partnerships are cemented we ask the community to identify their needs by making a 'wish list'. Our global network then begins the process of acquiring the supplies and the funds needed for transport.
Minimizing the politicization of our work in regions where clientelism is rampant proved to be challenging.
We counter this reality with a culture of transparency and accountability through partnership building, unprecedented documentation and most importantly tangible results. Aid is first independently appraised to justify transportation costs before being photographed, labeled, documented and finally shipped.
Regional coordinating mechanisms like the Red Cross and creditable religious institutions are designated as consignees while 28. Jun recruits members from the affected communities to enhance local capacity.
Once the donation reaches its destination our partners and volunteers check inventory lists to confirm the entirety of the aid has arrived before distributing it to the population.
The media is invited to cover the entire process which further demonstrates our commitment to transparency to our members, supporters and beneficiaries.
Additionally, an even more detailed record of the procedure is broadcast over our extensive social media platform which is updated daily. A follow up report is conducted 6 months after each delivery to assess how the aid is being utilized and how we can improve in the future.
What’s in a Name?
June 28th in the Gregorian Calendar is the feast day of St. Vitus, the patron saint of protection against storms.
Being an organization which exists to assist the needy through stormy times, we found it appropriate to name ourselves 28. Jun, a stylized spelling of June 28th.
