1.3 Million Serbs…
We are extremely proud to announce that on Vidovdan, the day our organization is named after, we have surpassed 1.3 Million subscribers on our mailing list. This weekend in Niagara Falls we will kick off a month of celebrations marking 7 years since our first humanitarian delivery and 7 years since 28. Jun was incorporated as a Not-for-profit organization in Canada.
We have been tirelessly building our network for nearly 8 years and our recent ‘Serbs For Good’ viral campaign brought us to this astonishing figure. In July of 2012 our organization delivered the first, of what would be over 30, large shipments of medical equipment and supplies to Serbian institutions throughout the Western Balkans. Seven years after that delivery to the Health Center Gracanica, we invite you to celebrate those achievements as we mark our final delivery with an international media press conference at the Clinical Center Nis, tentatively scheduled for the middle of July.
Since 2012 our organization has seen immense growth— we are honored that in 7 years we donated nearly $7 Mil worth of aid, successfully upgrading the medical infrastructure for our people throughout the region. Additionally, we are the first humanitarian organization from the Western Balkans to be granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations. We have delivered 184 tons of humanitarian, medical and disaster relief to the region; this included leading the global response to the 2014 Southeast Europe floods. Our 500+ members have held events in over 120 cities across 30 countries.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being one of this astronomical number! Your championship and support of our organization enables us to make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable of our population. We do not take your trust in our organization or our responsibilities lightly.
Our global network will unite Serbs in preserving cultural heritage, sharing humanitarian responsibility and supporting the region in times of crisis.
