“Novak Djokovic” foundation launches campaign Let’s keep all children warm
The “Novak Djokovic” Foundation is organising collection of winter clothing and shoes for children and youth in Belgrade drop-in centers. The campaign slogan is “Let’s keep all children warm”.
The collection of clothing will be organized on the second floor of the Delta City Shopping Mall in New Belgrade, on Saturday, December 14, from 10am to 10pm, and in the premises of the local community Dunavski Kej in New Belgrade, 64 Bulevar Zorana Djindjica Street.
“I would like to thank our friends from the “C&A” company, who have decided to contribute to the action and donate clothing and shoes from their range. A significant donation came from the company “Ivancic i sinovi” who provided the necessary supplements and medicines to help the faster cure from common cold in children. This is just the beginning, I would like to invite citizens of Belgrade to join our campaign and help us keep homeless children warm“
said Jelena Ristic, the Novak Djokovic Foundation director.
These children lack scarves, caps, jackets, shoes, boots, and everything that could keep them warm. We invite all citizens who are in position to help, to join us and be a part of the team that helps kids in Serbia. We kindly ask everyone to bring clean and neat clothes, in order to facilitate the sorting of goods before the delivery. The DHL company is providing help by distributing all the goods to drop-in centers.
The Foundation director Jelena Ristic will hand the collected clothing to the Day Care Center for children in New Belgrade, on Monday, December 16, 2013, at 12.00 noon.
There are more than 2,000 street involved children and youth in the streets of Belgrade, having no one who would take care of them, and in need for warm clothing during winter months. Last winter, more than 70 children came to the shelter every day, to get warm, rest, have a hot meal and change clothes. This year we are expecting even more children in Krfska Street and in the drop-in centre in New Belgrade.
Let’s help these children and keep them all warm!
