SFS visited Gocic family from Nis

During April, members of the Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS visited the Gocic family from Nis. As part of the “Trojka iz bloka” project in Nis, the plan this year is to help the seven-member Gocic family, living in the village of Gornji Matejevac, Pantelej Municipality. The family consists of the parents, Milan and Milena, and the children, Iva (7), Ugljesa (5), Vera (4), Nada (4), and Dimitrije (3).

The Gocic family is a hardworking family, and their financial situation was fine until a few years ago. When the father, Milan, opened his own construction company, he was able to earn enough money to make his biggest wish come true, and that is to have a large family. Unfortunately, in the last few years, his company, just like hundreds of others, could not survive in the conditions of the global financial crisis, and the demand for their services declined significantly. So, today, the family’s monthly income is about 25,000 RSD, and even that, as they have told us, since a few months ago, when the mother, Milena, despite having five children, started to work in a factory in Nis, because they were in a difficult financial situation.

Since they live in the same house with Milan’s parents, Milan’s wish was to build a bathroom on the first floor. That way, the children, who live together with their parents, would have enough space for their rooms, because all of them currently sleep in one room. Unfortunately, after buying the sink, the Gocic family had to give up on the idea, because they could not afford to build the bathroom.


Through the sports-charity “Trojka iz bloka” project, which aims at building and furnishing bathrooms for socially disadvantaged families, we have decided to build and furnish the bathroom for the Gocic family.

The Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS calls upon all friends and donors of the organization to join our fundraising action to help this family and other socially disadvantaged Serbian families with multiple children.
