Bathroom for the Dimitrijevic family

Another family that is receiving a bathroom thanks to the successful “Trojka iz bloka” fundraiser is the Dimitrijevic family. Charity organization Serbs for Serbs hopes to have construction of this bathroom completed by the end of the month. A total of 212,283 dinars has been allocated towards this project. 

Mladjen and JovankaDimitrijevic have ten children: Predrag (26), Jovanka (25), Bozidar (23), Darko (20), Vesna (19..married), Bojana (18), Snezana (17), Slavica (14), Borivoje (13) and Novica (6). The very little income this family receives comes from the seasonal work Predrag does at the local mill. The child assistance benefits they have relied on have been significantly reduced as only children under the age of 18 qualify. Money now only comes in for Snezana, Slavica, Borivoje and Novica.

Installing a bathroom in the Dimitrijevic home was a challenge as they had no running water. We took care of this by installing a water pump. Another area where this family needs help is with the restoration of a stable that collapsed in 2003. With no money available, the oldest son, Predrag, cannot rebuild it.

Charity organization Serbs for Serbs reaches out to large Serbian families who are in dire need of help. Children are our future. We must take care of them before it is too late.
