SfS received certificate “Tesla's people”

During the Vidovdan weekend in Philadelphia a great celebration took place, “200 years since the arrival of the first Serb in America”. The celebration was organized by the Tesla Science Foundation and its president Mr. Nikola Loncar, with the help of great number of prominent Serbs volunteers. The organization Serbs for Serbs received a special certificate “Tesla's people” for its previous charity work. The certificate represents great recognition for our organization and an obligation to continue with better and more dedicated charity work in the future.


A three day celebration was commenced in Raynham, New Jersey where the Tesla Science Foundation donated the Nikola Tesla bust to the town. The bust will stand on the main railway station and remind the passers of the great Serbian scientist.

On friday, June 27 in the Frenklin Institute in Philadelphia, Zeljka Cvijanovic, prime minister of the Republic of Srpska, revealed the bust of Nikola Tesla – a work of the Banja Luka artist Bojan Mikulica. After that, a formal reception and the auction of the valuable items was organized by Zvezdana Stojanovic on behalf of the charity organization Ras International. Representatives of the Republic of Serbia attended the reception, and we must point out the presence of the General Consul of the Republic of Serbia in New York Mirjana Zivkovic, who has always supported the work of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs.

In the conversation with the prime minister of the Republic of Srpska, Mrs. Cvijanovic, representative of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs Aleksandar Krsmanovic presented the results of the organization in the Republic of Srpska, and the planned actions in the future. The prime minister Cvijanovic expressed gratitude for our previous work and asked us to participate in the projects of helping the endangered families to a greater extent in the future.


Dusan Bastasic, president of the Association of Descendants and Supporters of Victims of Complex of Death Camps NDH Gospic-Jadovno-Pag 1941, delivered the lecture “Moje Jadovno”. We have heard and learned a lot from Mr. Bastasic on the subject of history of camp Jadovno, the subject which is little known and much unspoken. And if we forget the past, there is no future...

We were especially satisfied that most of the visitors had already heard of the organization Serbs for Serbs, and the details of our work and action.

We sincerely thank the organizors of the celebration for the certificate “Tesla's People”.


The floods are gone, but the havoc remained. Let us not forget the people hit by the disaster like many times before. Our little is everything to someone. Children are our future!

With faith in God
