MEDIA COVERAGE OF THE KOSOVO THANKS CANADA PROJECT

30 September 2012

The Kosovo Thanks Canada art project was highly publicized and covered by media in both Canada and Kosovo. In Halifax, Tony Bislimi appeared on CTV Atlantic Morning Show to talk about the project, while in Kosovo several daily papers covered the activity (Bota Sot, Gazeta Express and a few local news portals such as Rajonipress.com and 2lonline.com)

Other media outlets in Canada covered the Kosovo Thanks Canada project too, as indicated by the following links / news clippings:

The Bislimi Group Foundation once again acknowledges the financial support of the Municipality of Gjilan without which this project could not have taken place.
