Monthly Report for September 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 is a 501(c)(3) notfor-profit profit charitable organization. Donation is tax-deductible deductible to the extent followed by the law. On 30th September, 2011 we finally nally got the letter from department of the treasury (IRS) S) 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, 21 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 and associations, help often doesn't reach the most jeopardized. Due to unnecessary administration, missing informationn 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, amo among us, the blind and deaf. We are witnesses of the bad demographic situation of our nation, decreasing natality, increasing number of singles, abortions, accelerated aging of

www.serbsforserbs.org 2014 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 thee 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 ng 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 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 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.

CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE!

Monthly Report for September 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 help? We help Serbian families who live in the Balkans, have five or more children and live in 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.

www.serbsforserbs.org 2014 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.

How to donate? 1. PayPal donation: szsamerika@gmail.com 2. Direct Deposit to Wells Fargo Bank account Please email us at: szsamerika@gmail.com 3. You can mail personal or business check to: Serbs for Serbs PO Box 34206, Chicago, IL 60634 4. Donation boxes: BEOGRAD CAFÉ 2937 West Irving Park Road Chicago, Illinois Owner: Dule Pavlovic

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.

Monthly Report for September FAMILY GLUHOVIC RECEIVED TRACTOR FROM SFS

www.serbsforserbs.org 2014 Several years ago the Association of mothers with four and more children included Maja into the program of the Ministry for sport and youth of the Republic of Srpska, and they built them a house next to the old one. The house looks nice, but they only sleep in it, because there is no water in the village. During the day they are still staying at grandmother’s house and use rainwater or water from the well.

Charity organization Serbs for Serbs from the Republic of Srpska donated at the end of August an used tractor (8.000 KM) to family Gluhovic. Nenad and Maja Gluhovic have nine children: Bogdan (16), Nevena (14), Suzana (12), Gorica (10), Dragoljub and Dusan (8 – twins), Dusica (5), Snezana (3) and Jovana (4 months old). The family lives in the village Bozine, about 10 km away from Rogatica. They own 3 cows and 30 sheep, and 4 ha of land. They are cultivating it on their own, without machines, and they are also working for a wage at their neighbors’.

The youngest Gluhovic enjoy their tractor which will help them in agriculture business Family Gluhovic contacted us because their son Bogdan is finishing his schooling (for a welder), and he decided to stay on their land. He is accompanying his father in working for a wage. In most of the cases they don’t receive money, but the neighbors help them with their tractors.

Family Gluhovic in front of their house Nenad’s mother is living with them. She has managed to cultivate 200 kg of beans on her own.

www.serbsforserbs.org 2014 The children are overjoyed with the tractor, and whenever they have the opportunity or Bogdan is not using it, the younger children are pretending to drive it. Bogdan and his family thank all the people of good will who fulfilled their dreams and enabled Bogdan to provide a job for himself.

During our first visit we agreed to buy a tractor for Bogdan because he could work without anyone’s help for the family, and he could also work on other peoples’ land and thus earn money. That could help Bogdan to stay on his land and later sustain his family. Charity organization Serbs for Serbs bought a tractor for Bogdan for 8.000 KM. The family found a tractor in the next village. In order to get it as cheap as possible, they didn’t ask for a trailer or any other appliance, because they want to earn for that. However, the tires on the tractor were bad, so they asked us to buy a new ones, which we did and paid 730 KM for them. Charity organization Serbs for Serbs continues with great projects across the Republic of Srpska and in Herzegovina. We call upon all the donors worldwide to SUPPORT all future actions of our organization.

New tires for tractor During our second visit we were able to see the donation we provided thanks to our donors. On this occasion we helped a child who had to grow up very quickly.

Family Plecas consists of parents Nikola and Milena and their four daughters: Jovana (8), Milica (6), Jelena (4) and Nikolina (1). We will provide construction material for upgrading the house.

A wood stove for the family Drobac

We already managed to provide urgent help for family of Zoran and Nedeljka Drobac, due to the difficult condition of their daughter Sara (10), who is having a cerebral paralysis. The family received a wood-burning stove which will mean a lot to them during the winter.

Unfortunately, almost all the families we visited face similar difficulties. People cannot find permanent employment, so they survive through animal husbandry and agriculture or by working for a wage. We plan to help more actively the returnee families to provide normal living conditions or enable the help to improve their current animal husbandry or agriculture. As well as across Krajina, Serbian people on Banija, apart from the socio-economic problems, have to deal with the pressures of other kind. Therefore, we call upon all of those who have forgot that there is still the Serbian people in Krajina, to help our activities in that area. We also call upon those who have supported us so far, to bring the hope to Serbian children of the better future. Let us not allow that the Serbian people in Krajina easily forget their root due to the lack of concern in Serbia. We use this opportunity to thank the wholeheartedly help of the priesthood of the Diocese of Gornji Karlovac, without whom we wouldn’t be able to plan and deliver the agreed help.

Monthly Report for September WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS OF POVERTY!

www.serbsforserbs.org 2014 place. For the trust we earned in Diaspora, the most credit go to our registered branches in the Republic of Srpska, United States of America, Switzerland, Austria and recently Germany. When did you join the organization? This way of working drew me to join as a volunteer five years ago when I was almost 18, and to help primarily the endangered families in Southeast Serbia, because there are a lot of large families who live in very difficult conditions. What is the situation in Serbia regarding poverty?

Having the poverty rate of 24.6 percent, Serbia takes the first place in Europe with 700.000 people living below the poverty line. The organization Serbs for Serbs has helped more than 400 families in nine years. We are witnesses of moral collapse, lost of security and perspective, devastation of traditional values and the attempt to establish new ones based on the pure materialist worldview, nihilistic and hedonistic life. We are witnesses that young people are brought to the state of apathy, and they are not interested of the life going around them. In that distorted value system a group of mindful and young people from homeland and abroad emerged, to which Igor V. Stevanovic joined in 2009 as a volunteer. Today he is a coordinator of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs for the Southeast Serbia, and a student of the final year of Faculty of Law in Nis. What distinguishes Serbs for Serbs from other similar organizations? Besides the fact that the organization is primarily consisted of young people, the most specific about this charity organization is that it has from its establishment functioned completely transparently, because all the donations the donors sent could be seen on the website of the charity organization (www.srbizasrbe.org), and every help to the families was documented by photos and bills. The organization gained great trust in Serbia and abroad? Transparency attracted great number of donors especially from abroad, who have had very bad experience with many charity organizations during the last 20 years, because the help didn’t arrive to the right

As official data of the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia show, having the poverty rate of 24.6 percent, Serbia takes the first place among the poor countries of Europe. In Serbia alone there are over 700.000 people below the poverty rate, so we have tried since the beginning to help where it was most needed and where there are most endangered. Is there a data of how many families you helped so far? During nine years, we helped over 400 families with over 1.500 children. JURIST AND HUMANITARIAN Igor V. Stevanovic was born in Nis in 1992. He finished elementary school Cele kula and Gymnasium 9th May in Nis, after which he enrolled in the Faculty of Law in Nis and is currently attending fourth year. Organization Serbs for Serbs was founded in 2005. The aim of the organization was to animate our people in Serbia and abroad to jointly help those who need help the most, and those are large families in Serbia and in other countries where the Serbian families live. Igor V. Stevanovic is a coordinator for Southeast Serbia, the editor-in-chief of the Austrian-German youth magazine SPOJI and the president and co-founder of the student-pupil association ORNAS in the University of Nis. Which families have you also helped? In the area of Vranje we helped the seven-member family Stojiljkovic from Golemo Selo by providing cement, sand and other material to arrange the rooms in which they live, because the house is not plastered and there are a lot of holes, so there was a danger for five young children to meet the winter in inhumane

www.serbsforserbs.org 2014 included about a dozen of volunteers who managed to help fifteen families from the Southeast Serbia in four years.

You also had an action during the spring floods? Due to great May floods we commenced an action which is still in progress, Fight against the floods, and we collected so far nearly 600.000 EUR of help which would be used for the repair of the flooded objects and other help to the families from Serbia and the Republic of Srpska which were hit. How much money did the organization collect so far? According to our report, by the end of August 2014 we collected over 1.000.000 EUR. Members of the humanitarian organization Serbs for Serbs

What is your organization’s motto? In short, the philosophy of our organization is reflected in the old Chinese proverb: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. We are primarily focused in providing the families with enduring help, which comes to the fore mostly with the families living in countryside. What does the help consist of? The help usually consists of buying hens, goats, pigs, cows, cultivating machines and other things necessary for the family to stand on its own feet. We also had several big actions in which we bought or renovated the households. You also had a successful sport project? Since 2012 in cooperation with the Basketball Alliance of Serbia we commenced a charity-sport project Trojka iz bloka, which was held in over 15 towns so far, and whose aim is to provide bathrooms to endangered families which didn’t have a bathroom, and thanks to the tournament we built over 10 bathrooms. Due to the May floods we decided that help gathered in the scope of this project would be directed to the flooded ones. You are very active in the Pcinja area? Regarding the Pcinja area, I must say I am particularly attached to that area because I am from Vranje by origin, so the situation in that area affected me greatly. We managed to organize a branch of the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs in Nis in whose work are

Our newspaper has a good cooperation with you? We owe special thank in our work in the Pcinja area to the Charity bridge and Vesti from Frankfurt who published the texts about the unfortunate destinies of families from Vranje and surrounding villages and enabled us to find out about those families and help them according to our possibilities. We helped several families so far. I would like to greet your readers and thank them for the help they are sending, because I was personally convinced how much that help meant to those poor families. After the text in Vesti about the Antic family from Drenovac near Vranje you helped this extremely poor family. The state in which father Novica and mother Dusanka with their children Miljana, Aleksandar, Stefana and Dimitrije lived was unworthy of life in the 21st century. The condition was made more difficult by the facts that the father had an alcohol issue, which he was trying to cure, and that the mother had psychic problems, difficulties in communication and inability to take care of herself. All the burden of running the household was placed on the oldest son Aleksandar and oldest daughter Miljana. We provided for the Antic family: a new household, two folding beds, two comforters, elementary groceries, two goats, five laying hens, freezer, woodburning stove, chainsaw, four sacks of flour, and four sacks of food for the hens.
