The Order of St. Sava, the highest decoration of the Serbian Orthodox Church, has been solemnly awarded to the representatives of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs on Vidovdan in the Gracanica monastery for the long-standing charity work and help to the Serbian nation throughout Serbia and the Balkan by His Holiness Serbian Patriarch Irinej. The solemn ceremony of awarding the Order of St. Sava of second degree was carried out after the Holy Liturgy, and it was received by the president of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs Mr. Igor Rasula together with other members of the organization who attended this solemn act.

Charity organization Serbs for Serbs has been collecting and providing valuable charity help for the socially disadvantaged multiple children Serbian families throughout Serbia and the region for ten years. Thanks to its registered branches in Serbia, the Republic of Srpska, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and USA, as well as numerous donors worldwide, the organization Serbs for Serbs has so far collected more than 1.2 million EUR and helped over 1.400 disadvantaged and poor families which together have more than 10.000 children.

We should particularly emphasize valuable charity and economic help which the organization Serbs for Serbs in the last ten years provided for the disadvantaged families on Kosovo and Metohija and in Krajina. Thanks to the highly dedicated work of the members of the organization, there is a possibility for a great number of families to come back to their hearth from which they were forcefully banished in the latest war developments.

- The Order of St. Sava is the highest recognition which we received from the Serbian Orthodox Church in our previous work and existence of our organization. This decoration doesn’t belong to the members of the organization alone, but to each donor, both in Serbia and worldwide, each individual who helped us to persist in our charity work, and of course, this decoration belongs also to all the heroes of our time, who far away from the public eyes raise their multiple children families and try to persist in the hard time in which we live – points out Mr. Igor Rasula, the president of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs.

Charity organization Serbs for Serbs started at the beginning of March great charity campaign “Send SMS on 7763” charged at 100 RSD for a single message, through which it raises means for helping socially disadvantaged families throughout Serbia. Also, through its official website www.srbizasrbe.org the organization is gathering hundreds of donors worldwide each month, who through regularly monthly payments provide the means for the realization of new projects of help to families and children throughout Balkan.
