SfS visited Popovic family from Celinac

At the beginning of April, the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs visited the six-member Popovic family from the village Branesci, Celinac municipality, in the Republic of Srpska. The family consists of the parents, Milanko and Slavka, and their four children: Ilijana (20), Milijana (17), Gojko (17), and Bojana (15). The Popovics were helped last year by purchasing seeding material to the amount of 485 BAM. The family lives on the minimum wage Milanko earns, working as a seasonal worker at a sawmill. They own a big piece of land, so they seed corn, which they later sell to sustain the family and provide education for their children.

Milanko took out a loan to buy a tractor, but he still needs a farm trailer and other tractor attachments, which he borrows or hires from others in the village. Since a farm trailer and a plow is what the Popovics need the most, our plan is to provide this aid, so they could use their own machinery to earn more money for the family.

We call upon all people of good will to get involved and through their contributions help the projects of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs, which aim at helping socially disadvantaged Serbian families throughout the Balkans.
