“Steer fattening” farm opened in Kosmet
On September 22, in the village of Slatina in Kosmet, the Charity organization of the Raska-Prizren Diocese, “Majka devet Jugovica”, solemnly opened new facilities – “Steer Fattening” farm and stable for raising cows. This project was realized jointly by the French Charity organization “Solidarity for Kosovo” (Solidarité Kosovo), Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS and Zoran Ciric with a group of friends of Kosmet. The SERBS FOR SERBS donated the sum of 739,000 Dinars for this project. (RECEIPTS)

The newly built steer and cow farm is a project which is the extension of the existing goat and sheep farm, opened two years ago in the village of Slatina, and also the nearby dairy farm in the village of Prekovce, Novo Brdo Municipality. Additional farm expansion will provide a secure job for six workers, and the income made from selling milk and dairy products will be used for ensuring the unobstructed work of soup kitchens in Kosmet, which daily provide meal for over 2,000 people.

The day before the farm opening, the NGO “Majka devet Jugovica” had celebrated its Slava, Nativity of the Virgin, known as Mala Gospojina at the Gracanica Monastery. The president of the organization, presbytera Svetlana Stevic, addressed the people present at the farm opening in Novo Brdo, saying: “Thank you, brothers and sisters, for your wholehearted support. You are our backbone through difficult times, which are inevitably part of every work. Thank you for joining us in feeding, clothing and putting roofs over the heads of the suffering Serbian people, who appreciates it very much. And, we pray to the Lord, who sees it, to reward your good deeds.”
