By doing this extensive action of aid delivery to numerous Serbian families from the area of Krajina, we wanted to make the holiday of Nativity in some way happier for a small number of children living far away from the world, in the remote places where the Serbian people still lives. With wholehearted logistical support of the friends of the organization and the priesthood of the Dioceses of Dalmatia and Upper Karlovac, another Christmas action was carried out successfully. We are preparing another, very extensive Easter action aimed at helping even larger number of families from the area of Krajina, so we wish to appeal to kind-hearted and patriotic people to get involved.
