The headstone with the name of the deceased Hadžić was unveiled by the members of his family, his wife Selveta and daughters Anesa and Nejla, and Eldin Kunto, Chairman of the Board of Directors, on behalf of the Foundation.

“On behalf of the Hadžić family, I wish to thank the dear friends of the Foundation “Source of Hope” who made a decision to rename this student dormitory as a sign of remembrance, love and respect towards our father and husband”, said Nejla Hadžić, daughter of the deceased Hadžić.

We are immensely grateful to God to have had the chance to meet and work with Prof. Hadžić on numerous projects we realized through the Foundation “Source of Hope”. We are happy that the student dormitory is named after Prof. Hadžić”, said Tarik Agetović, director of the Foundation “Source of Hope”.
