Monthly Report for December
www.serbsforserbs.org 2015 The electricity debt was increasing despite the fact the electricity was cut off, and Zoran was over and over again getting subpoenas under the direct threat of going to prison because he had had similar problems with electricity debt in the past. However, Zoran was stronger than that. From day to day he is doing heavy physical work and managing to feed his family and looking into the future with hope. The hope for Milicevic was born where we all expected it the least. Charity organization Serbs for Serbs immediately saw the seriousness of the situation of family Milicevic.
Father Zoran and his wife Mirjana with Marko, Milena, Milica, Milan, Milomir and Mirko lived without any child benefit, with miserable social income, without job, without compensation for care of old and almost immovable grandma who is 90 years old, and with the electricity debts that cannot be paid, unresolved property relations, e.g. the simple question of water usage. The family was completely forgotten and the social service in charge didn’t even know that young Mirko was born.
We acted in Dreznik according to the motto of the organization – from words to works. The plans were changing, and the realization was the issue of days. The first plan was to renovate, and afterwards we came up with building the new house with all legal-property relations and documentation complications that go along with that. Having in mind the complete social exclusion of family Milicevic we perceived them as a big and urgent project. The help soon arrived from Pancevo – father Branko Bozic with the blessing of His Eminence Bishop of Banat Nikanor called the members of the organization Serbs for Serbs and proposed the very original and bold idea. Father Branko, extraordinarily high professional basketball player in his youth, is a great friend of the sport-charity project “Trojka iz bloka” and he is following the work and advancement of the noble mission. His incredible idea is the brightest example of fraternal love and true sport spirit.
Difficult living conditions of family Milicevic in Dreznik “Trojka iz bloka” brought the hope into this house that good fellow citizens can help in getting the better place in this world and that friends can help in resolving the electricity debt of several tens of thousands of dinars. Unfortunately, the opposite happened. The institutions in charge showed no sign whatsoever of the will to cooperate and urgently help the disadvantaged people.
