Help for family Petrovic from Gracanica

Charity organization Serbs for Serbs helped on 1 December family Petrovic from Gracanica on Kosovo and Metohija. Pupils Strahinja (11) who is in 5th grade, Mihajlo (9) who is in 3rd grade and Nemanja (7) who is in 1st grade live with their uncle Vladimir who is their custodian. We helped the family by providing appliances and furniture in the amount of 170.922 dinars. We received great help on the spot by our friends from EHO Majka devet Jugovica.

In April 2010 the children tragically lost both of their parents. Their father killed their mother and afterwards himself also. After their death, the grandparents took care of the children, and they went to Obrenovac. Suddenly their grandfather died, and afterwards grandmother as well, so the children were left alone. Center for social care from Obrenovac contacted their uncle, who is the children’s closest relative, and asked him to take care of the children. Otherwise the center would have done that. Vladimir got custody over the children on court. His wife Zorica is helping him with the children.

When benevolent people heard their story, a lot of them wanted to help. The Red Cross was the first to help by organizing a concert and giving all income of sold tickets to the family. It also helped to take the children to the sea and provided charity packages to them. Gracanica municipality in cooperation with the Ministry for return provided warm home, because the children were living in a dilapidated house.

After the house was finished, Charity organization Serbs for Serbs helped in providing furniture and appliances, and the brothers were most happy about the worktable for their homework and the bookshelf.

We call upon all the people of good will to keep supporting the work of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs and thus help and make joy of a great number of children who need help urgently.
