Victims of the 2014 floods receive the key to their new home
Belgrade, Serbia, December 15 - 2016. Three Serbian families were recently given the keys to move into their new houses in the city of Ub that were built thanks to donations from the FIVB, the CEV, and the Serbia Volleyball Federation.
In 2014 the Serbia Volleyball Federation launched a project to build houses for victims of the 2014 floods that affected the Balkans and these were the first three to be completed.
CEV President and FIVB 2nd Executive Vice-President Aleksandar Boricic, the Lord Mayor of Ub, Darko Glisic, and Mr Ivan Knezevic, Secretary General of the Serbia Volleyball Federation, officially handed over the keys to the families and unveiled plaques with the names of the respective donors.
Ms Tanja Bozovic, a single mother to four children, will move into a house that was donated by the CEV. The house was built with the funds provided by the FIVB and will be the new home to the Jovanovic family, a household consisting of four brothers and a sister.
Mr Vladimir Stojanovic, a single father, will live with his two daughters and one son into the house that was donated by the Serbia Volleyball Federation.
“When this major disaster happened in 2014 I collected photos from the affected areas and showed them to my friends in the FIVB and the CEV, and to some people from the national volleyball federation,” Mr Boricic said.
“They all promised to help, and I am happy that now, finally, we can officially donate these first three houses to people in need. I wish all the families and their children a prosperous and healthy life in these new premises.”
