Cow for Lazarevic family from Ozren

The Charity organization Serbs for Serbs helped the nine-member Lazarevic family from the village of Okoliste near Doboj. The parents, Sladjan and Ruzica, have five children: Zeljko (10), Bojana (9), Zeljana(7), Slavica (5), and Darko (3). Sladjan’s mother, Milenka, and his sister Vedrana, who is eight years old, also live with them in the same household. Our last visit to the Lazarevic family was in April, when we agreed on providing them a cow, which we purchased for 2,250 BAM.

The Lazarevic family is on a very tight budget. Sladjan earns a small income, working as a seasonal worker in the “Sume Republike Srpske” company (SRS), and that is how he is trying to provide for his family. Wishing to increase their income, they addressed us with an appeal to provide them a cow. To show how much this means to them, they built a stable and prepared baled hay while waiting.

With the financial help of donors, the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs bought the cow, which the Lazarevic family had found in the nearby village.

This way, we provided regular supply of dairy products for the children, and if there is a surplus, mother Ruzica can sell it and thus contribute to the family budget. The children were very happy to get the cow, and the whole family is very grateful to generous donors for the big aid.

The Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS calls upon all friends and donors of the organization to join our fundraising action to help this family and other socially disadvantaged Serbian families with multiple children.
