Croatia coffee movement brews up good will

In pay-it-forward-style scheme, people purchase coffees for fellow citizens who are struggling to get by.

    Nearly one-quarter of the population of Croatia has said they struggle to get by each month on their wages.

    For many, scraping by means having to cut down on food and drink purchases.

    To help soothe the situation, a new idea has found its way into some Croatian cafes known as "The suspended coffee movement".

    In this interesting scheme, people pay for drinks for those less fortunate.

    Al Jazeera’s Catherine Stancl reports.
