Vukovic family moved into their new home before winter

In mid-December, the Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS successfully finished another big project, which aimed at helping the eight-member Vukovic family from the village of Dusanici, near Prijepolje. The family consists of the grandmother, Milka, the parents Nenad and Ivana, and their children: Nemanja (11), Martina (9), Stefan (8), Djordje (7), and Sladjan (6). With the help of people worldwide, the action was started to move the Vukovic family into their new home. The action consisted of purchasing front door and interior doors, wood-burning stove, bathroom fit-out, construction material for plastering the entire house, plaster boards for walls and ceilings, material for insulation, electrical wiring and piping, laminate and painting. The action was also supported by the “Knjaz Miloš” company with a donation of 500,000 Dinars, as well as the Charity organization “Stara Raška” with 50,000 Dinars. The total value of the project was 1,418,966 Dinars.

Members of the Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS first visited the Vukovic family at the end of August 2015. We saw then that the good people from Prijepolje had built, roofed and installed the windows on the new Vukovic family house. Talking to the head of the family, we agreed on fitting out the living room and bathroom for them, so that they could move into the house before the winter.

After publishing the report on visiting the Vukovic family in September, we received a large number of earmarked donations, so we agreed on completely fitting out one floor and thus provide normal living conditions for this family. The aid action consisted of completely fitting out three children’s rooms, a big living room and a bathroom, which made all Vukovic family members very happy.

Due to cold weather and rough terrain, we agreed on finishing the works on painting the house and installing the gutters and drainpipes in the spring, when the weather is nice.

We call upon all people of good will to get involved and through their contributions help the projects of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs, which aim at helping socially disadvantaged Serbian multiple children families throughout the Balkans.
