28. Jun concludes project to help vulnerable children with big delivery



28. Jun in partnership with the Red Cross and the Ministry of Youth and Sport delivered 10 pallets of diapers, blankets, clothes, hygiene products and laptops with software for the blind to the Dom 'Veternik' center disabled children and youth in Novi Sad. The delivery was made as part of the 'Njihova buducnost, nasa duznost' ('Their Future, Our Responsibility) project to aid vulnerable children in Serbia which we had to pause to focus on emergency flood relief.

To complete the project 28. Jun also donated all proceeds from our humanitarian art show in Toronto to our partners at the Vlade Divac foundation to help renovate the Elementary school “Milija Rakić” in Cerovac, near Smederevska Palanka. The school has been flooded by May rains and needed to be reconstructed. The school is attended by 16 pupils from 1st to 4th grade.

The Minister of Youth and Sports Vanja Udovicic expressed his satisfaction with the work and successes of 28. Jun, both in Serbia and in the Diaspora. "The Ministry of Youth and Sports is supporting the project 'Their Future, Our Responsibility' as being implemented by 28. Jun. The Ministry supports legitimate initiatives and concrete actions which contribute to ending the emigration of Serbs by empowering and motivating young people to stay in our country. 28. Jun is very active in the philanthropic sphere, with a special focus on the most vulnerable members of the population: children and young people."- said Udovicic.
