Donation

The Montenegro Ambassador gave a TV to the children SOS – Children Village

The Montenegro Ambassador, Dusko Lalicevic made the children at the SOS – Children Village happier by donating them a TV. Besides the TV, he gave the children 45 430 denars – money raised at the New Year’s reception organized by the Embassy of Montenegro. Accompanied by embassy representatives, the ambassador visited the SOS-Children Village in Skopje, where he watched the show that the children had prepared.  Then, they visited the SOS – Family House “Buba Mara”, where in a friendly, domestic atmosphere they discussed the children’s everyday activities, the way the family model of care functions and the possibilities for further work and socializing with the children without parents and the parental care from Montenegro.

At the Children Village they remind that they function only by means of sponsorships and donations. “All donated goods are carefully registered and are used for the needs of our SOS-families. Each donation contributes to the family budget and is of great importance for us and the people we care for since they are one of the most vulnerable groups in the society”, they say at the SOS Children Village.

The SOS – Children Village started working in 2002 when the first child was received. With 12 family houses and five additional facilities, the village can take 84 children without parents or parental care, seven in each family. “All 12 houses are functioning at the moment. 12 SOS families with 78 children (most of whom are primary school pupils) live there. 12 professional SOS mothers look after the children. The SOS mum is a leader of each SOS family and is responsible for the individual development of the children that she looks after”, they explain at the village. They add that each mum lives with maximum seven children in her SOS family in one of the SOS houses, and in the heart of the SOS family model lies the permanent and solid link between the SOS mother and the children. SOS aunts and SOS family assistants help the SOS mothers, as well as the village director, the housekeeper and the administrative-pedagogical team. The pedagogical team consists of a social worker, a pedagogue and two psychologists who provide professional help to the SOS mothers for more effective dealing with the children’s growth and development. The family approach at the SOS – Village bases on four principles: “Every child needs a mother, it grows normally with brothers and sisters in their own home and in a healthy and pleasant environment of the village”.
