Members of the Charity organization Serbs for Сerbs from Serbia and Republic of Srpska have visited at the end of december 2016, Cekic family of nine,  from the village Donja Kola, that is located approximately 20km from Banja Luka, on the slopes of mountain Manjaca. Members of the family are father Djuro and mother Mirela, and their seven children,  Milutin (18), Bogoje (14), Genadije (9), twin sisters Milica and Marija (4), Maja (3) and their youngest Vasilije (1). Our organization has provided building materials and beds for the children, in total value of 12.649 BAM. This donation was provided by Gracanica – Serbian eastern ortodox church congregation of Windsor, Canada, purposely for finishing building this family’s house.

Building was finished in december 2016 – We installed 16 new pvc windows, as well as front doors, we plastered 250sqm of walls, we built complete water supply network, and bought much needed sanitary equipment for bathroom

We found out about Cekic family from our friends from Serbian organization „Bastionik“ from Banja Luka, who contacted us with a plead to help this family. „Bastionik“ has helped them as well, on Christmas eve, when they brought them packages of personal hygene items and food. In this family, nobody has a permanent employement, and the only certain source of income is 240 BAM of social aid. Besides that, father and the oldest sons, try to make some additional income by working seasonal jobs, so that they could live at least a bit better. Furthermore, they raise sheeps and pigs, which were also given to them as a help from all the good people, and they grow some vegetables on the land that they own besides the house.

During our visit, we had a chance to see how impecably this mother takes care of her children, because the kids are so well behaved, beautifully dressed, and all of them have good grades. Their parish priest Goran Kovacevic, who was our host, and who took us to visit them, said that the family lives obeying God’s laws, that they come regularly to church, that they are fasting, and that they receive holy communion regularly. The biggest problem for this family is their practicaly uninhabitable house. With a help of the friends, first floor of the house was finished, but withouth a roof, unplastered, uninsulated, withouth floors, with carpentry that was installated poorly. All of this was huge problem during the winter and autumn, because it was too cold, and water was leaking everywhere.

Cekic family would like to thank immensely to all the donators from Widsor, Canada, and to members of the charity organization Serbs for Serbs on the help that was necessary for them. By providing construction material, their children will have more decent life conditions.  
We invite all the people who are interested to join and help the projects of the Charity Organization Serbs for Serbs, whose aim is to help socially disadvantaged Serbian multi-children families across the Balkan.
