Talent and Determination of Stanomir and Filip Against Poverty

It takes so little to bring smiles on their faces
It takes so little to bring smiles on their faces

Violeta A. was just a girl when her family fled from Kosovo in 1999. They were put in the Refugee camp in Raca and she grew up in a 9 square metre cubicle sharing it with her parents and a sister, sharing a bathroom with other 23 families. The first chance to get independent and move out from the camp she took and after eight years in the camp she was finally living in a rented, but separate small apartment. In this apartment her three children – Stanomir, Filip and Kristina are growing up. Stanomir completed the elementary school and enrolled into secondary vocational school for auto mechanics. Filip, a two-year younger brother was going to the sixth grade and little Kristina was a toddler when Violeta lost her job and had only social benefit as a regular income.

She knocked on every door, asked for any job in fear of becoming once again dependent and homeless, only this time with three children. She asked us to help in any way. With your help, we provided textbooks for Stanomir and Filip. When Kristina started her education, we provided her with textbooks and free school snack.

Today, Stanomir is in his last year of secondary school and can’t wait to start earning money and supporting his family. Filip is in his last year of the elementary school and has big plans. He has a great talent for singing and has already won many children’s competitions. Last year he was a semi-finalist in the national singing competition for children up to 15 years of age. They need our support this year so that Stanomir can graduate and be ready for the job, and Filip to complete the elementary school and continue his education. Kristina is starting the fifth grade when many new subjects are introduced, more textbooks are needed and, as she has grown a lot during the Summer, new clothes and shoes are a must for her to go to school.

Please, help us continue supporting these children, so that they never learn what it looks like losing a home and being homeless.
