Monthly Report No. 15 December, 2011


Monthly Report Dear friends and donors, Charity organization Serbs for Serbs registered in the state of Illinois in United States in Jun 2010 by the group of the Serbian youth. Charity organization Serbs for Serbs are a 501(c)(3) notfor-profit charitable organization. Donation is tax-deductible to thee extent followed by the law. On 30th September, 2011 we finally got the letter from department of the treasury (IRS) with tax exempt 501(c)3 approval. All donations to our organization donated from June 16, 2010 are tax deductible under section 170 of the Code. We are also qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers of gifts under section 2055, 2106 or 2522 of the Code.

About Us The mission of Charity organization Serbs for Serbs is to affect on consciousness of Americans, Serbs and their friends through planned projects, social and humanitarian activities in order to develop and foster better society for future generations and provide aid for underprivileged families in need. Although there are many humanitarian organizations ons and associations, help often doesn't reach the most jeopardized. Due to unnecessary administration, missing information and slow decision making, the delivery of aid arrives too late to the final consumers, or not at all. It is a sad and embarrassing, but true fact that more than 18.000 children daily die around the world because of starvation and malnutrition. ion. There, among us, the blind and deaf. We are witnesses of the bad demographic situation of our nation, ion, decreasing natality, increasing number of singles, abortions, accelerated aging of

www.serbsforserbs.org 2011 the population and generally bad economic condition of the households in Serbia, Republic of Srpska and other countries in the Balkan. An average couple has "fallen" on one child. Analysts warn that Serbs will become a minority in its own country in the following century if the nation, individuals and government don't wake up from the nescient in which they've fallen! On the other hand, nobody is talking about the families with many children which grieve by living in bitter poverty. Occupied by their everyday struggle for survival, they are being humbly in their desire for implementing rights which belong to them. Their life stories, fears and problems are identical, but almost invisible and unheard in order to gain the attention of the public, media and even state. That's why the idea of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs arose. The organization rganization was formed by a group gr of young and trustful people, who are united by the common vision of helping families blessed by many children and who are aware of the fact that even a small help means a lot for those who don't live in a material excess. We are united by the humane idea to help the poorest part of the Serbian nation. Charity organization Serbs for Serbs try to revive the spiritless energy of the Serbian Diaspora which would be able to reinforce people of Serbian heritage as well as all good people throughout the world ld with minimal, but bu constant monthly donations. We hope and believe that there is also a grain of doing good and that you will join us in the endless e struggle against poverty. God bless and save all Serbian families with many children and our honored donors who participate in the noble effort to return smile on children faces.

Monthly Report

www.serbsforserbs.org 2011 • our donors are satisfied with the activities and they are ready to help other families; • our organization is satisfied with the results; • family is ready in the future to become our donor and if necessary help other families that are in need of help.

Ambitions

Our mission The mission of Charity organization Serbs for Serbs is to affect on consciousness of Serbian people through our projects and humanitarian activities, in order to develop better society for future generations. Why Serbs for Serbs? We wanted to alleviate impaired spirit of Serbian people in togetherness and brotherhood help through humanitarian work and social aid.

Who do we need in organization? We need members and donors that will secure financial stability through supporting our programs and activities in the future. Donors may join our daily activities within the organization in order to coordinate our work better. We also need volunteers ready to donate several hours per week for actual work within the organization. Activities of volunteers and their specific tasks would be determined by the required projects and their personal interest. From that group of volunteers we would look for future leaders of organization.

Who do we help? We help Serbian families who live in the Balkans, have five or more children and live in terrible poverty. How do we define “terrible poverty”? Under terrible poverty we define absence of one or more basic factors required for living: food, clothes, shoes, and safe space for living. Why do we help? We believe that there is a basic need for one human (or a group) to help others in distress. A help is not only human virtue but also a Christian responsibility. By focusing our help on families with many children, we directly affect on their stirring toward becoming independent from socialdependable government programs. Indirectly, we want to affect on birth rate of Serbian people that has been in great decline in last 20 years. What are our long term goals? • family is ready to support itself daily and manage to pay all required expenses and bills; • their children are encouraged to continue with school and raising their own family;

The Humanitarian organization Serbs for Serbs, thanks to donors and people of good will who answered our call for help, have delivered help to the Filic family from Kosovo and Metohija in the value of 250,000 dinars (aprox. $3,300 USD) as part of the existing Christmas charity action. The aid, most of all, was in the form of furniture and appliances for the home to be delivered when the remodeling of the home is complete. The renovation of the home is being financed by the organization Majka Devet Jugovica (Mother of Nine Jugoviches) from Gracanica. Also, our organization was able to order help in the form of medicine and emergency materials for paramedics in Ocojanu near Pec.

The required money for these purchases were collected at the Humanitarian Dinner in Canada, for which we would like to take this opportunity to thank our generous friends in Canada. Charity organization Serbs for Serbs will deliver medicines and the medical supplies to the infirmary in Osojane for the second time in the forthcoming Christmas action. We decided to do that after the request from the local health center and the Serbian people from this village in Metohija. Unfortunately, the Ministry of health of the Republic of Serbia is no longer in position to continue the regular delivery of the necessary medicines to Kosmet, so our organization used most part of the donation of the Serbs from Canada to provide the necessary material. The medicines will be delivered in January. We communicate the thank of the people from Osojane to all the donors worldwide!

Monthly Report SFS IS HELPING FAMILIES FROM BELGRADE

www.serbsforserbs.org 2011 The oldest son is a winner of many medals from boxing, and he is also performing for the representation of Serbia. Unfortunately, he is forced to work in a car wash for 500 dinars per day, in order to help his family. We found out that the parents haven't payed the bills for electricity and rental, and they are managing to buy food. The only stabile income is 8,000 dinars of child benefit. Dragan is unemployed for 5 years. He owns a passenger van with 7 seats, and he would be happy to drive the passengers and get the money for his family. We decided to get some elementary groceries for them in the amount of 10,000 dinars, and agree for a future help. Our next stop was Mali Mokri Lug.

During the previous weekend, a three-member team of SfS from Belgrade visited and helped three families in our capital city. We bought some elementary groceries for the Kostić family with seven children on Bežanija, and we only visited and agreed future help for the families Vranić from Mali Mokri Lug with ten children and family Stamenković from Petlovo brdo with seven children.

Family Vranić welcomed us in their home with a family team. The parents Dragoslav and Olga live with the children Sandra (19), Anñela (16), Jelena (14), Radomir (12), Veljko (11), Mihajlo (9), Jovana (6), Teodora (4), Katarina (2) and Filip (1).

After attending the holy liturgy in the church of Saint Simeon Mirotočivi on New Belgrade, a three-member team of SfS from Belgrade visited the first family. The Kostić family lives on Bežanija in a rented house. It consists of the unemployed parents Dragan and Milica and children Nemanja (21), Kosta (17), Milana (16), Vuk (11), Vukica (9), Angelina (5) and Vukašin who is eight months old.

Father Dragoslav is working in the public transport as a night driver, and they are also receiving 6,000 dinars of the child benefit. All the children are excellent pupils. We agreed to get them the groceries in the future. After that, we visited a nine-member family Stamenković, who is living in an apartment of 40m2 on Petlovo brdo. The members of the Stamenković family are the unemployed parents Vitomir and Nedeljka, and children Anñela (13), Jovan (12), Marija (10), Dušan (9), twins Zorica and Zoran (6) and Ana (3). They are receiving a child benefit in the amount of 10,000 dinars, and father Vitomir is expecting to get a monthly amount of 13,000 dinars from the National Employment Service, since he lost his job recently. The oldest son Jovan is helping at the altar and choir in the church of Nativity of St. John the Baptist, and every Sunday entire family

Monthly Report goes to the holy liturgy together by bus, and are fasting on a regular basis.

They managed to buy the apartment, but it is in bad condition: the parquet is ruined, the walls are dirty, there are bugs all over the place, the closets are falling apart, the refrigerator is barely working (and the food is spoiling), they don't even have a freezer, TV is not working, they are sleeping in an old bed, old couch and pillows. The bathroom has been equiped by new water heater, washing machine and a sink. They need: a new refrigerator with freezer, elementary groceries, painting of the apartment... We will try to solve their everyday problems. A father and the oldest son thanked us for visiting them.

As they are leaving to the vespers, we go back to our lives and “worries”. We hope that this moving story of the Serbian families will touch the hearts all over the world, and thus we ask you to be more generous during the forthcoming holidays, because your little means so much to them! …………………………………………………………...

www.serbsforserbs.org 2011 SFS HELPED THE STAMENKOVIĆ FAMILY

A three member Serbs for Serbs team from Belgrade visited and helped the Stamenković family from Belgrade, specifically Petlovo Brdo. The help provided was in the form of the purchase of basic necessities for living, groceries, hygiene products and similar in the value of 19,672 dinars (aprox. $260 USD).

Even though that day the traffic was herendous, and a dense fog came in, we still managed to get through to Petlovo Brdo. In front of the building, waiting for us were the father Vitomir, and the oldest son Jovan, so they can help us bring in all of the aid we were delivering that day. As we climber the stairs to the fourth floor, we could see the youngest Stamenković peeking through the door excitedly waiting for us with amazement and a smile.

Charity organization Serbs for Serbs www.serbsforserbs.org PO Box 34206, Chicago, IL 60634 Phone: +1-312-85-SERBS


Monthly Report Along with the groceries and hygiene products, we prepared seven packets filled with sweets for all of the little children. The children, of course, loved the packets the most and started into them immediately with great joy.

www.serbsforserbs.org 2011 While we are playing and taking pictures with the little ones, we made plans to further help the family in the form of a new refrigerator with a freezer, because as they said, that is what they need the most.

The father Vitomir spoke to us about his plan to sell the apartment so that they can purchase a home with a yard in the suburbs. But, unfortunately, because of the current economic conditions, that plan will have to wait for better times.

Even though we would gladly stay longer to take pictures, talk and laugh with the children, time doesn’t allow us. So, we must part ways with the Stamenković family until our next visit.

The happy, younger Stamenković shows us his school notebooks we can see that as a good student he is regularly getting A’s and compliments.

Monthly Report HELP FOR THE JEŠIĆ FAMILY FROM PRIJEPOLJE

www.serbsforserbs.org 2011 At the beginning of December they were placed in the rented house in Zalug, where they have decent living conditions. The municipal council decided to pay them the rental of the house until July 2012, and the competent authorities will try to build them a house and resolve their residence permanently.

Charity organization Serbs for Serbs helped during the month an eight-member family Ješić from Prijepolje. The help consisted of: • wooden stove – 21,977.50 dinars • double decker bed (including jogi mattresses) – 32,315.50 dinars • sheet – 8,700 dinars. We should remeber that the representatives of the organization visited the Ješić family during the action in the Raška area, conducted on 19th and 20th of November. The family consists of the parents Nenad and Danijela and their six children: Milovan (13), Miljan (11), Srñan (7), Aleksandar (4), Danka (2) and Darko (one month old). Unfortunately, this family lost its home twice. In 2006 their house was turned down due to the landslide in Zvjezd, and then they were temporarily accomodated in the youth home of Boško Buha in Jabuka, where the electricity was turned off.

We hope that this story will have a happy end, and that our organization will have the possibility to help this family again to stand on their feet and start living a normal life. Charity organization Serbs for Serbs www.serbsforserbs.org PO Box 34206, Chicago, IL 60634 Phone: +1-312-85-SERBS

EXTENSION OF THE HOUSE FOR THE ĆETKOVIĆ FAMILY

We are happy to announce that the project of extension of the house for the Ćetković family from the village Peljave, Lopare municipality (Republic of Srpska) is in progress, and that the charity organization NemanjićiTićino joined the action by donating 794 CHF. A six-member family Ćetković lives in an unfinished house, in two rooms, which are very cold due to the bad isolation and concrete floor, and they don't even have a bathroom nor the water in the house.

We use this opportunity to call all the people of good will, socially responsible companies, other NGO and institutions to join us in this action, and thus help the humble and hardworking family Ćetković to get its home and the conditions to live with dignity.

HELP FOR THE FAMILIES KESAR AND ZDJELAR

On Friday and Saturday, 2nd and 3rd of December 2011, we have visited two families near Prijedor, family Kesar from the JutrogoĹĄte village, whom we have helped twice before, and family Zdjelar from the village Petrovo, in our first visit to them. We visited the Kesar family first. They welcomed us as always. The washing machine we provided in our second donation is working well. We found out that the oldest daughter Dragica was married, and that she went to another village.

The following day we went to the village Petrovo. It is the village where the Marjanović family lives. Although we have visited them frequently, we didn't notice a shed on the meadow. We thought it was a meadow, until our friends told us it was actually the home of the Zdjelar family.

Given the fact that it was our third visit to this family, we decided to get them only elementary groceries, to help them get through the winter, and to have less worries during the New Year and Christmas holidays. We spent 199,45 KM in the action. We use this opportunity to thank the brotherhood of the Klisina monastery, who joined the action by donating icons, calendars, and the books of the Orthodox thematic.

Monthly Report

www.serbsforserbs.org 2011

The family consists of the parents Mićo and Milena and five children. Milena has three children from her previous marriage – sons Željko (17), Dragan (9) and a daughter Dragana (5), and she has two more children with Mićo – a daughter Željka (1,5), and a son Miroslav who was born recently.

Like the previous times, the action was supported by the „Butchery Bojić“ and the store „Tadić“ from Prijedor, who have donated large amount of meat and fruit, and we use this opportunity to thank them again. We must mention that the television team of the Radio Television of Republic of Srpska joined us in the action for the first time. They have recorded the action, and we expect a reportage soon. The only income the family has is from Mićo's wage. He is working in the forest, but it is not a permanent solution. He is not having problems working, but there is not enough jobs. The biggest problem of the family is related to the accommodation, because a seven-member family lives in about 10m2. This is a family in the most difficult condition we visited so far. They sleep in two beds. The house is made of wood, and covered with nylon, which makes an isolation. They have electricity in the house, but they must go to the well to get water. The hygiene of the family is on a low level, which worried us most. We bought great amount of groceries and the hygiene in the amount of 530 KM, and we hope it will be enough for most part of the winter.

Monthly Report TAMBUR PROJECT SUCESSFULY FINISHED

www.serbsforserbs.org 2011 Vitomir thus became our member, and in the case a family from his municipality needs his services, he will be happy to help.

Another year of our work marked the end of another project in the Republic of Srpska thanks to our donors. The family of Vitomir Tambur received the motocultivator with appliances! Unfortunately, since the beginning of our action when we receive the offer, until we raised the money, the price of the products were raised, but it wasn't a problem for Vitomir, who found the best solution to get a motocultivator, and a plow, tiller and a trailer. Vitomir plans to cultivate his land, but also to cultivate the land of his neighbors, and earn enough money for his family.

Branka Zubić, the director of the Center for social work of the municipality Eastern New Sarajevo and the Radio television Eastern Sarajevo. We called the representative of the Assembly of the Eastern Sarajevo, which participated in the action with 1,500 KM, but they didn't manage to come. We thank all the donors and the institutions which helped us in this action.

Small but with Big heart Tunic Mary, lives with her family in Calgary, Canada, she just turned her twelfth birthday. Since her family is part of an organized group of Serbs from Calgary that separates its regular contribution for years to the organization Serbs for Serbs, she decided to make a contribution.

Instead of receiving gifts for his birthday, Evan wished his friends and family to make a donation to Serbs for Serbs to help Serbian children in dire need of help.

How? She decided to give up gifts for her twelfth birthday, and instead of the gifts from her friends she requested money this year, which will be send by her parents to Charity organization Serbs for Serbs. At her Birthday party she managed to raise $270 which was forwarded to the account of SZS.

Evan's guests at his birthday party were able to gather a total of $710 all together. Some gifts were donated online prior to his birthday party and the rest were donated at the party the day of the event. Evan's generosity will bring joy to many children in Serbia this winter.

Thus, thanks to small-big Mary Tunic, some good, poor, and many Serbian families in Kosovo, the Serbian Republic or Serbia, will be happy for New Year and Christmas, because their parents will be able to buy food and other necessary things and all this from the voluntary contributions of little Mary and her friends.

$710

Mary, thank you from my heart for the good work and know that your example will help other children and adults to realize the joy of giving to those who who are poor.
