Help for family Zeljkovic from Zemun

The sport-charity project “Trojka iz bloka” was held in Zemun on September, 11 for the first time in its four-year long mission of help to the socially disadvantaged families with four and more children throughout Serbia and the Republic of Srpska. We helped the eight-member family Zeljkovic from Zemun in which three generations live – grandfather Bosko, father Milan, mother Sladjana and children Marija (15), Milana (13), Milos (11), Sima (10) and Sara (8). Family Zeljkovic received a donation of electric stove and two double-decker beds with mattresses and drawers to great joy of the youngest, which was a result of a helping hand of their neighbors who participated on the tournament in Zemun. The amount of help was 82.990 dinars.

Zemun showed to Zeljkovic family they are not alone and that not everyone forgot them. The residents of Zemun made a spectacle for the basketball fans and people of good heart in one of the most beautiful elementary schools in Serbia, at the heart of the sport-educational center of Zemun, in the elementary school “Svetozar Miletic” courtyard. Lovely socializing on the tournament was enriched by the legends of the Zemun sport and art, and the mission of the tournament “Trojka iz bloka” was successfully finished in these days.

The sport-charity project “Trojka iz bloka” is the biggest project of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs, within which we help the families by building or renovating the bathroom but also helping the disadvantaged families in any other form.

New double-decker beds

Together with our friends from Zemun we found out about the difficulties of family Zeljkovic which is trying to survive with the grandfather’s retirement and mother’s disability retirement in Zemun in the total amount of 34.000 per month! The father is unemployed, the mother has chronic leukemia, but despite everything, the children are cheerful and smiled and all of them – excellent pupils!

The help surely reached the right hands, and we hope to find a way to help these people in the future as well. Children are our future and Zemun is taking care of its children!

Five of the youngest members of the Zeljkovic family received what they needed the most in this moment and that would enable them slightly more comfortable life. They will keep fighting for their successes in life with smile because they know their neighbors are their true friends!

The best season of “Trojka iz bloka” so far was crowned with many successful finished projects. Let us rejoice and wait for more good news from entire Serbia and the Republic of Srpska which encourage us and wake hope for even more successes the following year. Join as well!

Become the part of “Trojka iz bloka”!
