Charity organization “Serbs for Serbs” has brought to an end another big project. The project of help for the Antic family from the village of Drenovac, near Vranje, aimed for the Antic family to get relocated from an old, unsafe and inappropriate house to nearby Golemo Selo, where we provided them with a house and an estate, together with the necessary countryside household facilities. The house and the estate are 15.000 euros worth. Members of the Antic family, parents Novica and Dusanka, children Miljana (16), Aleksandar (15), Stefana (9) and Dimitrije (7), were given a Moto cultivator with additional mechanization, electric chainsaw, firewood cooker, freezer, flour sacks, chicken food,  those from the donation collected at Easter concert (2.835 CHF), organized by the Association of the Serbian students in Switzerland.

A bit more than a year ago, the Antic family lived in a mountain village of Drenovac, near Vranje, in some of the worst and most inhumane conditions that the humanitarian organization “Serbs for Serbs” has ever seen. A house made of mud, which was on the verge of collapsing any moment, one functional room, without any tables or chairs, two old beds in which all of the six members of the Antic family slept taking turns.

Having been informed about the terrible living conditions of this family, the humanitarian organization “Serbs for Serbs” started a big project of buying the Antic family some new household, so as to provide them with the brighter future.

Charity organization “Serbs for Serbs”, together with the help of many donors worldwide, who joined this project, provided: household purchase in a nearby village, two folding beds, two quilts, basic provisions, two goats, five hens, freezer, firewood cooker, electric chainsaw, four sacks of flour, four sacks of chicken food, and a Moto cultivator with additional mechanization.

A Moto cultivator with additional mechanization will make everyday agricultural work easier

With buying a Moto cultivator with additional mechanization, as well as a chainsaw, we planned to provide the family with the starter resources for making money themselves, and for being independent, in such a way that they could live out of their own work.
