Aid for Jancic family from Herceg Novi

Report: SFS Montenegro /RECEPTS/
In April, the Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS helped the multiple children Jancic family from the village of Suscepan, Herceg Novi in Montenegro. Members of the Jancic family are the single father, Ivan, his children: Nemanja (10), Milica (9), Mirjana (8), Vasilije (6) and the grandmother, Radica. Ivan works for a daily wage in the construction industry when there is work to do. The grandmother, Radica, is the only one helping him to raise his children. We helped them by buying footwear for the children, food and hygiene products in the total value of 375 euros.

The Jancic family lives in extremely tough financial conditions, especially after 2011, when the children’s mother abandoned them and terminated all contact with the family. The Jancic family members are tenants in the village of Suscepan in Herceg Novi and all of them live in one room. They pay off the rent in the way that the father, Ivan, does all kinds of physical work for the landlord and they do not have any other income, except for their father’s daily wages.

Hard living conditions of the Jancic family

Due to lack of finances, their biggest problem is making regular monthly payments to the state, i.e., paying electricity and water bills. This problem requires urgent solution, given the fact that their current water and electricity debts are more than 1,000 euros.

All members of the Jancic family are citizens of the Republic of Serbia. Three children go to primary school, and all four of them attend RE and the Divine Liturgy at St Stefan Church in Suscepan. The children are polite and well brought up. The Parish Three of Herceg Novi makes constant efforts to provide some aid for the Jancic family.
