Work in progress at Djordjevics in Strpce

Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS commenced at the end of 2014 big charity action of help to the socially disadvantaged family Djordjevic from the village Sevce in the Strpce municipality on Kosovo and Metohija. Before our first visit and first help, the family somehow managed to “keep up“, but after the death of grandfather Bozidar and father Milorad in short notice, the five children, mother Radmila and grandmother Bozidarka were faced with uncertain future. Total value of the construction material and artisans was 850.000 dinars.

The youngest Djordjevics Milenko (21), Milica (18), Danijela (13), Kristina (9) and Ivana (8) didn’t want to talk about their material situation, needs and desires. Within the Christmas action of our organization we delivered to family Djordjevic two beds, wood burning stove, closet, and kitchen table as the first part of the urgent help to this big Serbian household.

Thanks to big charity action for the reconstruction of the Djordjevics home, members of the organization SERBS FOR SERBS from Canada organized big Christmas campaign IN TIME FOR BOZIC through which they raised part of the necessary means (approximately $2,500), and the other part came from the donations from Germany, USA, Serbia, the Republic of Srpska and numerous other countries worldwide. Great number of individual donors decided to support the project of reconstruction of the Djordjevic’s house to provide decent home and help in the great family tragedy and difficult situation.

Thanks to the cooperation of the organization SERBS FOR SERBS and its friends from the Eparchy charity organization “Majka devet Jugovica” which provided artisans and necessary construction material, in the beginning of June the works on the reconstruction of the Djordjevic’s house commenced. We also owe special thank to the Office for Kosovo and Metohija of the Government of the Republic of Serbia which helped to temporarily move the family until the works on the house were finished.




The ongoing works are as follows: setting PVC joinery on the ground and first floors, concreting of all rooms, setting laminate, garbage disposal and removing of the old furniture from the house with the help of the local utility services in Strpce municipality, and the reconstruction of the bathroom in the future.






After all inner works which should be finished at the beginning of July, the family will move into their house, and after this the works on the outer part of the house will begin – setting the isolation, facades and gutters.




Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS continues with this big project of helping the Djordjevic family from Strpce. We plan to finish the works on the reconstruction of the house at the beginning of July so that the family could move into its almost new and reconstructed warm home. We call upon donors and friends of the organization worldwide to DONATE and thus support the completion of this and other big projects of help to socially endangered Serbian families with multiple children throughout Kosovo and Metohija and other areas where Serbian families who need fraternal help, support and attention live.
