Humanitarian organization 28. Jun marks International Women’s Day with donation to maternity wards
Donation of love to maternity wards
To mark International Women’s Day, humanitarian organization 28. Jun made a sizable donation to maternity wards in Kraljevo and Leskovac which included thousands of specialized medical-grade baby outfits, sleeping gowns for new mothers, complete linen sets for maternity beds and cloth diapers. With this delivery 28. Jun returned to Serbia’s impoverished south and completed a $900,000 project to upgrade Serbia’s hospitals which began with the delivery of an 8-ton container to Clinical Center Nis at the start of the pandemic.
28. Jun Women Director Jelena Obrenovic stated: “To mark our 10th anniversary year, we carefully planned a project which is extremely important to everyone, not just women — the ‘Donacija Ljubavi’ project. With this initiative, we want to draw attention to one of life’s most beautiful moments: when a baby is born and when a woman becomes a mother. Aware of the difficult conditions in maternity wards throughout Serbia, we aim to improve the quality of service during the stay of mothers and newborns in the most neglected hospitals.”
28. Jun’s program manager Milana Vasic added: “We believe this project to be just the beginning of a larger, awareness-raising movement, which will lead to more security and respect for mothers and their babies. During the month of March, which overlaps International Women’s Day, we seek both public and corporate donations to realize our shared goal of improving Serbia’s maternity wards.

Jun is the first humanitarian organization from the region to be granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations in 2018. Founded in 2012, to date the charity has delivered 235 tons of humanitarian, medical and disaster relief aid worth over $9.7 million to the Western Balkans.
