We are very happy say that we’ve donated a washing machine for the Apostolović family. The donation has come as a great surprise to all of us, especially for the family, who has had to do without a washing machine for over a year.
We’d like to thank the donor who has made this possible, as well as everybody else who shared the story of this family and allowed it to reach someone who could help.
We’ve met the Apostolović family of six from Slavujevac in Serbia, back in May of 2019. The family consists of four children, one of which, Nemanja, suffers from a severe form of Cerebral Paralysis. Despite being 18 years old, Nemanja has to rely on his family for care and everything else in his life. Other children are happy and healthy, and regular students in their respective schools.
The parents aren’t employed and spend their days working on the family’s property. Nemanja also has to take a great amount of prescription medication, as he suffers from epilepsy, allergies, and spasms. Besides that, Nemanja can’t walk, speak, or even eat solid foods, so the family needs a lot of “baby” supplies, such as diapers, wet wipes, and baby food monthly.
Thankfully, with the help of our non-profit, the family now lives in better conditions and doesn’t have to worry about providing for Nemanja all the time. However, they’re still very much in need of help for Nemanja’s daily needs.
