You Helped Kristina Live Her Dream!

Hello dear friends! We wish you all a very healthy, happy and successful New Year! With all the uncertainties around us, we know that you are also aware how difficult it is for many children who depend on us. We would like you to meet Kristina. She is the second child in the family which had to leave everything they had ever had behind in 1999 and flee to Serbia. She was born in a refugee camp in Raca and lived in it until she was 10 years old. She always had only what her elder sister could not wear anymore and she always learnt from the textbooks her sister kept for her. As she also has a younger brother, she tried to keep her wishes always in line with what she thought the reality was – she would have to stay at home after the elementary school, try to help her parents and younger brother so that they could all help her elder sister go to secondary school and, if possible, university.

You have helped us support her older sister go to the telecommunications school which is only available in Belgrade, pay for the dormitory and when she graduated from the school, to enrol in the University. Kristina was happy for her sister and grateful for the help. It was only when she was in the second half of her last year at the elementary school and when we asked her what her dreams were, that she ever mentioned how she would also like to enrol into telecommunications school in Belgrade and be close to her sister, but that she knew “that this was impossible”.

You made this dream of hers become a reality! You helped us pay for her dormitory in addition to the scholarship you enabled for her elder sister at university.

Now, she is a happy teenager, learning what she loves and is interested in, but also having her elder sister near her in the same town to support her and make life in a big city easier.

This is why we need your help. Over the years, we have been able to provide hot meals, school supplies and educational scholarships to over 100 children and youth like Kristina.

Our long-term goal is for all these children and young people to complete as many levels of education as possible, and be in a position to become independent and successful members of society.

The work that we do is entirely dependent on donations from individual supporters like yourself. We want to be able to provide hot meals, school supplies and opportunities to children and youth like Kristina.

What can you do?

  • Donate! If you set up a recurring donation, GlobalGiving will match it.
  • Use your gift card to make a donation.
  • Reach out to your network of friends, peers and colleagues and start a fundraiser. For every 5 people you know, those 5 people know another 5!


Every bit helps (more than you even realize) and we'll be forever grateful :)

Don’t forget to connect with us online (facebook, instagram or our website), we’d love to hear from you!

Warm regards and a huge THANK YOU for everything you have done to help these children,

Pomoc deci team
