 “When their mother left them, I had to work more than 12 hours a day to feed four children.”

“When their mother left them, I had to work more than 12 hours a day to feed four children.”

The unpredictability of life is something we all face. Whether negative or positive changes, these situations require us to adapt quickly. This time, we came to the village of Vrmdža near Sokobanja to hear the sad and difficult story of the Minić family.

I have health problems, I am a heart patient. I am most proud of my four children. When their mother left them, I had to work as a taxi driver for more than 12 hours a day to feed them. Now I am no longer able to drive a taxi – father Boban explains his situation.

An old house, collapsing carpentry and furniture, a leaky roof, several unfinished rooms – the home where Anica (12), Andrija (11), Strahinja (9) and Bogdan (8) spend their childhood. Grandfather Jelen and grandmother Bojka live with them.

My parents are sick. My father is disabled, and moves with great difficulty, while the situation with my mother is a little better. They help me the most with the children. At the moment, we live on social assistance and child allowance, about two months ago we bought piglets to raise, and we also have arable land – answers the father when asked how they live.

Although cheerful in spirit, the sad looks of the little Minićs best describe how difficult it is to live without a mother. However, there is no shortage of love and hope for a better tomorrow, which is why we are strongly motivated to help this family.

It would mean the most to us to have the roof changed because it is poorly constructed, it often leaks. Also, it is very cold in winter because the wind blows from all sides, so it is necessary to replace the carpentry. For the children, it would mean a lot to have  the rooms and the bathroom renovated – Boban told us.

The Charity Serbs for Serbs is launching a major campaign to help the Minić family! We invite all donors to join us so that four little children get decent living conditions.
