Matea, 34, Croatian, currently in Opatija (Croatia) – Live: From The Pandemic

How did the COVID-19 pandemic affect you the most?

The pandemic has got me questioning if I’m gonna close my family business that has been running for 20 years now. We had war here in my country and it was never this hard… My country (Croatia) is devastated, the only income that we have is from tourism, we don’t have any industry, what we earn in summer we have for the whole year.

What is your wish for the future? 

I wish that my one year old baby girl will have a safe future.

What would you like to be doing right now?  

I would like to buy a ticket for my whole family and get out of this country, I want something safer for my family.
