Disturbing photos come from Paracin where members of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs from Belgrade with the help of the local priesthood of the Serbian Orthodox Church made a list of the most endangered families whose houses were totally ruined in the floods which hit this town. The plan is to help approximately 50 most endangered families from Paracin by delivering the household appliances.

Unfortunately, a month after the terrible floods which hit Serbia and the Republic of Srpska the picture is the same all over flooded areas. The sanation of the houses is slow, because it depends upon the drying of the walls which is a long-term process. Most of the people in Paracin don't live in their houses, and a part of them don't have the strength to start repairing the damage. The primary reason is the lack of money. Even after more than a month after the floods about 10 families live in temporary collective lodging without the indication that their situation could be changed.

The conclusion of the representative of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs at the end of the visit is that the damage is huge and that the situation in Paracin is not presented properly in the media. The same goes for the towns south of Paracin which SFS is about to visit.

Paracin will be the first town to get the contigent of charity help – over 1.000 household appliances according to a treaty between SFS, and companies Tehnomanija and Gorenje.

We call upon all the donors, members, friends and followers of the organization Serbs for Serbs to participate in the action FIGHT AGAINST THE FLOODS which aims at providing the necesarry help for the flooded areas in Serbia and the Republic of Srpska.
