28. Jun campaign picking up steam

Student organization 28. Jun, renowned for sending $1.5 million worth of medical aid to Kosovo, is gaining media momentum with increased support from international press and Serbian athletes and celebrities. In his interview with Serbian national TV station RTS, Filip Filipi, president of 28.Jun stated “we plan to strengthen our organization by gathering supporters on a global scale and sending out two more containers of aid, one for Serbia and one for Republika Srpska.  In the meantime, our priority lies in securing financial resources to make all of this happen”. The story also made the cover of Vesti, the most widely-read publication in the Serbian diaspora.

28.Jun also received support via social media, most notably from tennis world champ Novak Djokovic, NBA legend Vlade Divac, Oscar-nominated director Emir Kusturica and rap super group Beogradski Sindikat. 28.Jun is a student-driven Serbian organization engaged in political, social and philanthropic functions pertaining to Serbian interests as well as a supporter of refugees, internally displaced and abandoned people.
