Decani and associations keep Gorazdevac

After the last armed terrorist attack which took place on December 7, 2015 on the inhabitants of the village of Gorazdevac in Metohija in the Pec municipality, when both the house of family Petrovic and monument to the victims of the NATO aggression and the children who were killed in 2003 in that village, respectively were shot at with the so-called “bulletproof bullets”, the brotherhood of the Visoki Decani monastery in cooperation with the inhabitants of Gorazdevac started an initiative to set the high-quality security video-surveillance system of all the streets and surrounding access roads.

Almost the same incident took place in Gorazdevac on July 9, 2015 when the parked vehicle of the Belgrade registration plates was shot at. During the same evening the unknown persons poured gasoline over the monument and tried to burn it. Gorazdevac was the target of numerous serious attacks and incidents in the past, of which the most serious one was in 2003 when two Serbian children were killed by a burst of automatic weapon, and four were wounded while they were swimming in the Bistrica River in the village during the summer break.

The initiative of the brotherhood of the Visoki Decani monastery was supported by numerous associations which have been helping the remaining people on Kosovo and Metohija for several years – Delije Foundation, Charity organization Serbs for Serbs, Independent Association of Students from Belgrade, Charity organization Solidarity for Kosovo from France, Serbian Association Zaduzbina from Slovenia, Charity organization My Joy from Germany, Serbian Brotherhood Help from Canada, Serbian Orthodox Youth Innsbruck from Austria, Spona from Macedonia, Serbian Convocation Bastionik from the Republic of Srpska, Young for Kosmet from Montenegro, Ensamble Kosovski Bozuri as well as great number of other associations and individuals throughout Serbia and the diaspora that have already started the actions of collecting necessary resources for buying and setting the video-surveillance system in Gorazdevac. So far approximately 3,200 EUR has been collected out of the necessary 40,000 EUR in order to put the entire system into function.

Charity organization Serbs for Serbs calls upon all the associations and people of good will worldwide to get involved into this big charity action in order to provide, deliver and set the high-quality video-surveillance system for the need of the village of Gorazdevac in Metohija. We think it is extremely important to secure the survival and safety of the numerous Serbian community, children above all, in the area of the Pec municipality on Kosovo and Metohija.
