The Charity organization Serbs for Serbs successfully finished another big project – building a house for the eight-member Vulic family from Ostruznica! The Vulic family consists of the parents, Nebojsa and Suzana, their children Danilo (15), Dejan (12), Ksenija (9), Sava (7), and Marija, the youngest (3). Nebojsa’s parents also live with them in the same household. The project of the house construction was started in mid-2012, and was successfully finished on Christmas Day 2015. The total value of the purchased material and labor costs was 13.620 €.

Nebojsa Vulic started building the family house in his yard back in 2003 and with the help of his friends managed to pour the concrete foundation and build walls up to the slab. He couldn’t continue further than that, due to the lack of finances and because his family was getting bigger.

In May 2012, representatives of the Serbs for Serbs Charity organization visit the Vulić family for the first time and they realize the hard conditions in which this big family lives. Due to bad roofing sheets, the water found the way of getting into the house, gradually causing the walls to move slightly and the electric wiring to malfunction. Having delivered the aid in the form of double-deck beds and PVC windows for the children’s room, the organization makes plans with the family to help them purchase the material for the continued construction of the new family house.

The works on the house construction started in November 2012


The first works on the continued construction of the family house started in the fall of 2012. The organization provided the necessary material, while the father, Nebojša, together with his friends worked on the house construction.

The first bathroom was built in April 2014, as part of the “Trojka iz bloka” project

During 2013 and 2014, the electrical and plumbing wiring and pipes were installed throughout house, mortar was applied to the walls, windows and doors were installed, the first floor was built, the roof, insulation, PVC flooring, tiles and sanitary ware for two bathrooms were installed, central heating system was installed and other necessary works on the house were done.






Also, we would like to point out that the Vulic family received a lot of help from their neighbors, friends and relatives, in the form of the construction material but also in doing the construction works.

The Vulić family will get another family member in spring, and after the baby is born, they will officially move into their new home. Until then, there is a lot of work to do on moving things, children’s rooms, beds, closets and other necessary furniture into the new house.


With great joy, we can declare another big project of the Serbs for Serbs organization successfully finished, above all, thanks to constant support of numerous donors from Serbia, region but also worldwide. On behalf of the Vulic family, we would like to give everybody a big THANKS.
