SfS visiting family Krakic from Eastern Sarajevo

Members and friends of the Charity Organization Serbs for Serbs visited in September the eight-member family Krakic from Eastern Sarajevo. The family consists of father Dragomir, mother Mila, and children Marko (21), Nikolina (11), Kristina (10) and Lazar (8). Marko is from Mila’s first marriage, but he goes along well with the rest of the family. Due to various family problems which Mila had in her first marriage, she left her husband, moved to Eastern Sarajevo and remarried. Nobody is employed in the family and they are surviving of wages and child benefits in the amount of 140 BAM. They live in a family home together with Dragomir’s brother and his wife.

The oldest son was employed for a while, but now he does not work, because his employers did not pay him and he was eventually fired. The biggest problem of the family is joinery. They tried to change one part, so now they only have a good front door.

The lower part of the house is currently unusable because it has a lot of water. The joinery is very old, and problems occur when there is wind, rain, and especially during the winter. They are in a very bad situation, but they try as much as they can.

Family relations are good, which could be noticed on the children. We found out about this family from the Centre for Social Work. The plan is to use the funds collected from the sports–charity tournament Trojka iz bloka, which was held during the last weekend in Eastern Sarajevo, to help family Krakic.

We invite all people of good will to engage and contribute to projects of the Charity Organization Serbs for Serbs which aim at helping the socially disadvantaged multiple children Serbian families throughout Balkan.
