The Ljiljak family on their way to a better life

http://www.srbizasrbe.net/images/Srbija/2016/Ljiljak/lj8.jpg
At the end of 2016, members of a Charity organization Serbs for Serbs have visited the Ljiljak family from Grocka to check progress of works on the construction of bathrooms and expanding their home. As we have reported earlier, the family is consisted by ten members: grandfather Mirko and grandmother Milica, their daughter Duška, a single mother of a seven children: Andrej (5), Slobodanka (8), Tamara (10), Bobana and Mirko (11), Zorka (12) and Božana (13).

During the nineties, the Ljiljak family had to move their native Western Slavonia and escape to Serbia due to well-known reasons. With the aid of the Commissariat for Refugees, they’ve bought themselves a small house of only 33 square meters, without a bathroom, at Smederevo road in the place of Dubočaj in Grocka, in order to finally get a place to live, they tried everything to forget bad things from the past and have tried to start a new life.

The financial situation of the family has not improved since our last visit by the end of 2015. They still live exclusively on social aid and occasional wage that grandfather Mirko earns, but, because of his age, the question is how long can the Ljiljak family count on that type of income. The Ljiljak family couldn’t go further unaided and that is why there appeared Serbs for Serbs, and then our sister organization “Smile as a gift”, other organizations, many individuals and donors, to, with joined forces, as well as in hundred other cases, help a vulnerable family with many children to move forward to a better life.

In the house of the Ljiljak family, after numerous problems with documentation and land that we were able to solve, work is now in progress at full steam and one extra room will soon be completed, so that children can have more space to learn, play and sleep, and a bathroom, so that the whole family can have living conditions decent fot tha 21st century!

The Ljiljak family is just one of many families that have been helped by our organization to stand on its feet and move forward. That wouldn’t be possible without your donations, which are more numerous every day, thank God, as well as appeals for help, unfortunately. Help us to continue changing lives of many disadvantaged families with many children throughout Serbia and the Balkans, because CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE!
