Christmas action in the Leskovac area

Within the traditional Christmas action, members of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs from Nis have successfully conducted the action of buying the bred cow to family Stojanovic-Vucic who lives in the village of Gornja Jajina near Leskovac. We visited the family Stojanovic-Vucic at the end of 2015 and arranged to bring them a cow which we provided in the total amount of 139,000 RSD. Part of the donation for family Stojanovic-Vucic arrived from Canada, rather from the group of Serbs from Ontario.

As we have already written, this family moved from the Bosnjacka mahala in Kosovska Mitrovica where they were afraid for their lives daily for years. In 2013 the Kosovo Albanians threw a bomb into the family courtyard, so they mostly lived closed into the house having the fence around it which was two meters high. The father of the family died of heart attack about a year ago (most likely out of stress due to constant fear in which they lived), leaving to his wife Dragana three minor children: Petar (9), Nikola (7) and Nikolina (4).

After the death of the father, mother and the children decided to leave the house in Kosovska Mitrovica which wasn’t even in their ownership but was given to them for usage by the Republic of Serbia. Due to everything that had happened, and due to great trauma of the children, this move was necessary. Even today, after the move, the children are suffering certain consequences of these events, which can best be seen on the oldest son who is losing hair due to stress, so in conversation with our members from Nis we agreed to help Peter come to see a doctor in Nis and get a therapy.

The family lives out of social benefit (approximately 20,000 dinars) and since they moved in with the husband’s parents who are farming, they needed a cow in order to provide elementary living conditions for the children.

We call upon all the people of good will to get involved and donate in order to help the projects of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs with the aim of helping the socially disadvantaged multiple children Serbian families throughout Balkan.
