New England Friends of Croatia (NEFC) is a not-for-profit organization formed by a community that shares links with Croatia. The organization is active in the Boston metropolitan area, as well as other areas of New England.

“This is a wonderful organization. Each member succeeds in creating a warm, friendly and enjoyable environment. I am learning Croatian and I always look forward to events — particularly the annual Christmas Party because it feels like an extended family celebration.”
