Aid for Mijatovic family from Banja Luka

Report: SZS Republic of Srpska /DONATE/ /SEND SMS TO 7763 (IN SERBIA)/
At the beginning of summer, the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs helped the six-member Mijatovic family from the village of Borkovici, 15 kilometers away from Banja Luka. The family consists of the parents, Nenad and Milijana, and their four children, Nebojsa (19), Miroslav (17), Darko (16), and Zorica (14). The aid consisted of doors and windows, floor insulation, water pipes installation and plastering, to total value of 4,813 BAM.

The oldest son, Nebojsa, suffers from a developmental disorder, with epileptic seizures. No one in the family is employed. Nenad is a war invalid, who works for daily wages when there is work to do.

The Mijatovic family home only has the ground floor and it has a mono-pitched roof. The interior walls are not plastered, and there is no floor. They put carpets and rugs over the bare concrete. Their furniture consists of one couch, three beds and a wood-burning stove, which they use to heat the house. They keep their clothes in cardboard boxes.

After our visit, a decision was made to help the Mijatovic family by doing some work on their house: the screed was laid (floor insulation), the walls were plastered, the windows were installed, interior doors and also a front were bought and installed. A nearby spring was used to supply water to the house and the pipes were installed in the kitchen and bathroom. This action created normal living conditions for the Mijatovic family.

The Mijatovic family would like to thank our donors who made all this possible. We hope that in the future we will be able to buy the Mijatovic family some furniture and install floor and tiles.
