28. Jun delivers aid to Sv Petka, anounces new project with Church | 28. Јун испоручио помоћ манастиру Света Петка, и најављује нови пројекат у сарадњи са Црквом




28. Jun made a humanitarian delivery to the Sv. Petka Monastery and orphanage for the mentally disabled in Paracin this week. The facilities are home to 93 women and the staff informed 28. Jun volunteers it was "the biggest donation they ever received." The donation consisted of hygiene supplies and clothes. This is the first delivery under the new 'Heart of Hope' project to send aid to Serbian monasteries in the Balkans and the orphanages, shelters and food kitchens they oversee. 28. Jun has partnered up with the Serbian Orthodox Church to hold fundraisers in the diaspora to send aid to those in need in the home country.

28. Jun president Filip Filipi commented on the new project; "Due to our experience delivering aid both for the floods and before to Serbs all over the Balkans we have found the Church to be the most trustworthy receiver and distributor of our goods once they reach the homeland. The Serbian Church in Montenegro was responsible for distributing our aid during our previous project and they executed their part to perfection. We have also had a close relationship in the past with the Church when they gave us Blagoslovs for our work in North America, Australia and Europe. After meeting Vladika Longin in New Gracanica and attending the Sabor for the Church in North and South America in Los Angeles, we decided this project is a natural next step. 28. Jun in partnership with the Church has the logistical ability, the man power, the experience and the will to make this project happen. We will systematically hold events with all Serbian Churches and Monasteries in the Diaspora who are willing to take part. A portion of the proceeds made from the events would go directly to the local Church and a portion would go towards acquiring and transporting aid for Churches and Church-run orphanages back home. "


Aleksandra Guculj, the 28. Jun coordinator in Serbia took part in the delivery and said; "Monastery Sv Petka was an experience of a life time, it was extremely humbling to be welcomed there by the nuns and the patients. Their are 93 female patients all taken care of by the nuns a few workers from the near by town Izvor. The Monastery is all but forgotten and yet the run off of donations. Mati Gligorija informed me that the donation that 28 Jun sent was the largest donation they have ever received and yet they still need more. They are desperate for detergent and all kinds hygiene, adult diapers for women and most importantly food. The grounds are impeccably clean, everything is taken care of and no one is forgotten on the grounds even if their families have forgotten about them. They need to have regular donations in order to keep up with those standards they have set for themselves. We should all keep working together to keep helping these happy people who are in need."

28.Јун je испоручио помоћ манастиру Света Петка и сиротишту за ометене у развоју у Параћину. Ове установе су дом за 93 жене, и запослени су изјавили да је то "највећа донација коју су икада добили". Пакети су се састојали из средстава за хигијену и одеће. Ово је прва у низу испорука у оквиру нашег новог пројекта "Срце наде", који за циљ има помагањe српских манастира на Балкану, као и сиротишта, народних кухиња, и свратишта која они покривају. 28. Јун се удружио са Српском Православном Црквом како би што лакше скупили средства у дијаспори и проследили их онима којима су она потребна у домовини.

Председник организације 28. Јун, Филип Филипи, прокоментарисао је нови пројекат:
"Током слања помoћи погођенима поплавама Србима широм Балкана, Српска Православна Црква се показала као најпоштенији прималац и дистрибутер помоћи угроженима. Српска Православна Црква у Црној Гори је била задужена за дистрибуцију хуманитарне помоћи током нађих претходних пројеката, и тај посао је перфектно обавила. У прилог нашег доброг односа са Црквом иде и чињеница да смо добили благослов за наша деловања у Северној Америци, Аустралији и Европи. После састанка са Владиком Лонгином у Новој Грачаници, и присуствовања црквеном сабору Северне и Јужне Америке у Лос Анђелесу, схватили смо да је пројекат ''Срце наде'' логичан следећи корак. Заједно са Црквом, 28. Јун има логистичке способности, људство и искуство да успешно спроведе и овај пројекат. Систематично ћемо организовати скупове у црквама и манастирима у дијаспори који су заинтересовани да буду део пројекта. Један проценат средстава ће ићи директно локалној цркви, други ће бити искоришћен за припремање и транспорт помоћи цркви и институцијама под њеним патронатом.''

Александра Гуцуљ, координатор 28. Јуна у Србији, узела је учешће у испоруци помоћи манастиру Света Петка, и тим поводом изјавила:
"Ово је било незаборавно животно искуство, почаствована сам што смо тако дочекани од стране монахиња и штићеница. Тамо су 93 штићенице, о којима брину монахиње и неколико радника из оближњег места Извор. Манастир није заборављен и опстаје уз помоћ донација. Мати Глигорија ми је рекла да је донација коју је 28. Јун посало највећа коју су икада примили, али и даље су им потребна средства, као што су производи за хигијену, пелене за одрасле, и, најбитније, храна. У самом манастиру је све чисто, о свему се води рачуна, и нико није заборављен, иако су породице заборавиле многе штићенице. Манастиру су неопходне редовне донације како би испунили стандарде које су сами себи поставили. Сматрам да сви треба да се удружимо како бисмо усрећили оне којима је помоћ највише потребна.''

Saopstenje za medije - Volonteri humanitarne organizacije “28.Jun” u saradnji sa Crvenim krstom isporučili pomoć građanima Obrenovca




Saopštenje za medije


Volonteri humanitarne organizacije “28.Jun” u saradnji sa Crvenim krstom isporučili pomoć građanima Obrenovca


Beograd, 08.08.2014. - Volonteri humanitarne organizacija “28. jun” u saradnji sa Crvenim krstom isporučili su pomoć najugroženijim građanima Obrenovca. Donirana pomoć u vidu u hrane za bebe, pelena, sredstava za higijenu, vode i prve pomoći ovog puta iznosi više od 5 tona.

Inicijativa mladih ljudi koji su osnovali ovu humanitarnu organizaciju se pokazala kao uspešna, pa je tako sakupljeno više od 200 tona pomoći vredne oko 1 500 000 dolara, koja stiže u Srbiju, deo po deo. Za dve nedelje stiže i preostala pomoć od 50 tona iz Čikaga i Toronta. . “U narednom periodu ćemo pokušati da se fokusiramo na novčane donacije kako bi mogli da finansiramo prevoz ostatka pomoći, pa tako molimo sve ljude dobre volje da nam pomognu u tome” rekao je Filip Filipi, predsednik organizacije “28. Jun”.

Članovi “28. juna” u Srbiji uvek pomožu i učestvuju u isporuci kako bi osigurali da pomoć dođe do onih kojima je najpotrebnija. Naredne nedelje volonteri će odneti pomoć manastiru Sv.Petka u Paraćinu, gde monahinje brinu o devedesetak devojčica ometenih u razvoju, koje svoje detinjstvo provode u domu u okviru manastira. 

Kako bi pomoć stigla do onih kojima je najpotrebnija, potrebno je još sredstava kako bi se platio transport ostatka pomoći iz Čikaga, tako da ovim putem volonteri ove humanitarne organizacije apeluju na sve da nastave sa doniranjem. Sve informacije se mogu naći na sajtu  www.28jun.org , a uplate izvršiti putem PayPal naloga na 28jun.org@gmail.com.

Thank You Letter from 28. Jun President to Members, Donors, Volunteers and Church


Dear members, donors and supporters of 28. Jun,

As we have now done the impossible by having delivered or shipped most of the aid for the Serbian floods, I would finally like to take a moment to express my personal gratitude to all those who made this happen.

Firstly, I want to thank our volunteers and donors, without your hard work and financial backing none of this would have come to fruition. I am thankful for every donation you have entrusted our organization with and for all those who took time off their job and worked tirelessly to help our people in a time of need, you have my eternal gratitude. Truck drivers, storage facility owners, parents who allowed their children to prioritize philanthropy over their studies, you are the ones who made this happen. Relja Illic, from the UK, your mother passed away the night of the floods and that morning you were already packing canned food for flood areas. Your selflessness was my inspiration and you made your mom proud.


Secondly, I want to thank the Serbian Orthodox Church for allowing us to use their space to collect material donations. Serbian Churches and halls depend on money from renting their facilities to survive and every Church who enabled us to use their space sacrificed for their people at this time of need. I want to kiss the hand of every priest who despite their age worked along side our volunteers to load these containers and made sure they were never hungry or thirsty during grueling 14 hour days of packing boxes. Bishop Longin from the US and Bishop George from Canada, despite my sometimes childishly critical stance on some Church matters, you opened your doors to our members and helped us complete this humanitarian mission. I am humbled by your generosity and wisdom.


Lastly, I want to thank all our 28. Jun members and coordinators all across the world who came together in this time of need to help our brothers and sisters back home. We sometimes have the most thankless job but we all know our reward is seeing the help get to people who need it. You all played a big role in organizing and leading our people to finally unite in a positive way. I am infinitely thankful: Milo Dubak, Juliana Pandurevic, Aleksandra Guculj, Sasa Gulculj, Jovan Subotic, Branka Celap, Svetlana Radmanovic, Marko Racic, Marija Oluic, Dusan Matic, Jovana Magazin, Julijana Stefanovic, Janja Milutinovic, Tijana Tomic, Olgica Ravasi, Jonathan Lee, Amanda Andjelkov, Stefan Popovic, Marko Petrovic, Filip Gold, Branislav Basaric, Nikola Lazovic, Tomo Grce, Danilo Miric, Aleksandar Rakic, Sasa Jovicic, Aleksandar Ucur, Dobrila Vitosevic, Nikola Peric, Marko Karac, Dejan Eskic, Natasa Jelenic, Milesa Cirovic, Milka Randjelvic, Dusan Kuzmanovic, Marko Ivanovic, Milos Dubak, Djordje Lucic, Ivan Mihajlvic, Petar Grabez, Boban Trajcevski, Vanja Petrovic, Jovana Zelenbaba, Irena Milas, Djordje Savanovic, Kosovka Spreco, Uros Maksimovic, Dijana Loncar, Jelena Vujovic, Nenad Arcaba, Slobodan Jokic, Teodora Radisic, Julia Kovacevic, Ivana Karisik, Radovan Licina, Neven Vujinovic, Ogi Oroz, Daniela Lazarevic, Dusanka Barisic, Anica Pejanovic, Juliana Milenkovic, Nikola Gligorevic, Lazar Tomovic, Marina Kuzmanovic, Neda Milesic, Sasa Dodos, Maja Dzamba + so many more...


I also want to thank the Red Cross, both in Serbia and abroad for accepting and distributing our aid and for being accessible throughout the entire disaster and keeping us up to date on which sort of aid was needed and how urgently. This helped us determine what to send by plane and what by boat. I want to thank the Serbian embassies and consulates as well as the Serbian government back home who helped guide our youth organization in this time of distress and swiftly provided all information and clearances we needed to deliver this aid. I want to thank the Serbian and international media for covering our work and documenting this project every step of the way to ensure the aid gets to the people who need it most.


To further express my gratitude and the gratitude of our organization we will take the following steps:

- 28. Jun will hold complimentary BBQs all over the world to thank all our volunteers and I will try my very best to be at as many of these as possible to personally thank everyone who helped. I will personally write a thank you letter to every donor and include a 28. Jun bracelet as a humble sign of our appreciation.

- 28. Jun will make a donation to 8 Serbian monasteries, one each in Serbia, Republika Srpska, Kosovo i Metohija, Krajina, Montenegro, America, Canada and Australia. Additionally our members will hold youth events in every city across the world where there is a Serbian community and will give a part of the proceeds to help with the maintenance of their local Churches.

- 28. Jun will evolve from having regional coordinators to a board of directors who will vote on all major decisions. To further solidify public trust, in addition to being the only Serbian organization whose members don't have a salary, we will make our finances fully transparent to the public within 2 weeks. This is in accordance with the date our taxes are filed with the government. Due to the speed at which the organization grew it is easy to forget that 28. Jun was only incorporated as a non-profit on July 31, 2012.


Again I thank you all from the bottom of my heart,

Filip Filipi - President, 28. Jun

PS - I promise to clean up my act on social media, it's time to grow up :(

Dragi članovi, donatori i simpatizeri 28.Juna,

Nakon što smo uradili nemoguće – poslali veći deo pomoći za postradale u poplavama u Srbiji, želeo bih da konačno izrazim svoju duboku zahvalnost svima koji su ovo omogućili.

Prvenstveno bih želeo da se zahvalim svim volonterima i donatorima, bez vašeg mukotrpnog rada i finansijske podrške ništa od ovoga se ne bi ostvarilo. Zahvalan sam za svaku donaciju koju ste poverili našoj organizaciji i svima onima koji su uzeli slobodne dane na poslu kako bi pomogli našem narodu u najtežim trenucima, imate moju večnu zahvalnost.Vozači kamiona, vlasnici skladišta, roditelji koji su dozvolili deci da na prvo mesto stave humanitarni rad ispred svojih studija, vi ste oni koji su učinili da svi naši napori postanu stvarnost. Relja, iz UK, tvoja majka je preminula u noći tokom poplava,a ti si već naredno jutro pakovao konzerviranu hranu za potopljena područja. Tvoja nesebičnost i požrtvovanost su mi bila velika inspiracija i tvoja mama je sigurno ponosna na tebe.

Takođe, želeo bih da se zahvalim i Srpskoj Pravoslavnoj Crkvi koja nam je ustupila svoje prostorije kako bi prikupljali materijalne donacije. Srpske crkve i sale zavise od novca koji dobijaju izdavanjem svojih prostora, a svaka crkva koja nam je ustupila svoje prostorije žrtvovala se zarad boljitka napaćenog srpskog naroda. Želim da se zahvalim svim sveštenicima koji su uprkos svojim godinama radili na utovaru pomoći rame uz rame sa našim volonterima i osigurali da volonteri nikad ne budu gladni ni žedni tokom iscrpljujućih 14 sati rada dnevno. Biskup Longin iz USA i biskup Džordž iz Kanade su otvorili svoja vrata članovima naše organizacije i pomogli nam da sprovedemo do kraja našu humanitarnu misiju, uprkos mojim nekad detinjastim pridikama na neka crkvena pitanja. Zaista se poniznošću gledam na vašu mudrost i velikodušnost.

I na kraju želim da se zahvalim svim članovima i koordinatorima 28.Juna širom sveta, koji su se ujedinili u ovom teškom trenutku za naše sunarodnike u domovini. Naš posao je često takav da nikad ne čujemo ni od koga HVALA, ali naša nagrada stiže onog trenutka kada pomoć dospe do ljudi kojima je najpotrebnija. Svi ste odigrali veliku ulogu u organizovanju i konačnom ujedinjavanju svih naših ljudi. Moju beskrajnu zahvalnost zaslužili su: Milo Dubak, Juliana Pandurević, Marija Oluić Aleksandra Guculj, Saša Gulculj, Jovan Subotić, Branka Celap, Svetlana Radmanović, Marko Racić, , Dušan Matić, Jovana Magazin, Julijana Stefanović, Janja Milutinović, Tijana Tomić, Olgica Ravasi, Jonathan Lee, Amanda Anđelkov, Stefan Popović, Marko Petrović, Filip Gold, Branislav Basarić, Nikola Lazović, Tomo Grce, Danilo Mirić, Aleksandar Rakić, Saša Jovičić, Aleksandar Učur, Dobrila Vitošević, Nikola Perić, Marko Karac, Dejan Eskić, Nataša Jelenić, Milesa Cirović, Milka Ranđelović, Dušan Kuzmanović, Marko Ivanović, Miloš Dubak, Đorđe Lučić, Ivan Mihajlović, Petar Grabež, Boban Trajčevski, Vanja Petrović, Jovana Zelenbaba, Irena Milas, Đorđe Savanović, Kosovka Sprečo, Uroš Maksimović, Dijana Lončar, Jelena Vujović, Nenad Arcaba, Slobodan Jokić, Teodora Radišić, Julia Kovačević, Ivana Karisik, Radovan Licina, Neven Vujinović, Ogi Oroz, Danijela Lazarević, Dušanka Barišić, Anica Pejanović, Julijana Milenković, Nikola Gligorević, Lazar Tomović, Marina Kuzmanovič, Neda Milešić, Saša Dodoš, Maja Džamba i mnogi, mnogi drugi…

Takođe bih želeo da se zahvalim srpskom, ali i inostranom Crkvenom krstu na prihvatanju i distribuiranju naše pomoći kao i na tome što su bili mobilni i dostupni sve vreme tokom poplava i obaveštavali nas koja pomoć je potreban i koliko hitno. Ovo nam je pomoglo da odlučimo šta će biti poslato avionom, a šta brodom. Želeo bih da se zahvalim srpskim ambasadama i konzulatima kao i vladi Republike Srbije, koji su usmeravali organizaciju u stresnim trenucima i brzo obezbeđivali sve informacije i papirologiju potrebnu za dostavljanje pomoći. Takođe bih želeo da se zahvalim inostranim i srpskim medijima koji su pokrili svaki korak u našem radu kako bi osigurali da pomoć stigne onima kojima je potrebna.

Kako bih dodatno izrazio svoju zahvalnost i zahvalnost naše organizacije preduzećemo sledeće korake:

- 28.Jun će organizovati roštilje širom sveta u znak zahvalnosti našim volonterima, a ja ću nastojati da dođem na što više ovih dešavanja kako bih volonterima lično izrazio zahvalnost. Lično ću napisati pismo zahvalnice svakom donatoru zajedno sa narukvicom 28.Juna kao skromni znak naše zahvalnosti

- 28.Ju će uputiti donacije na adrese 8 srpskih manastira, po jednom u Srbiji, Republici Srpskoj, Kosovu i Metohiji, Krajini, Crnoj Gori, Americi, Kanadi i Australiji. U dodatak tome naši članovi će održati humanitarne događaje za mlade u svim gradovima širom sveta gde ima srpska zajednica, a deo prikupljenih sredstava donirati za održavanja njihovih lokalnih crkava.

-28.Jun će uznapredovati po pitanju strukture – umesto regionalnih koordinatora imaćemo odbor direktora koji će glasati za sve važnije odluke. Kako bi dodatno učvrstili poverenje javnosti, imajući u vidu da smo jedina srpska humanitarna organizacija čiji članovi nemaju platu, naše finansije će biti potpuno javne za najkasnije 2 nedelje, to je period kada i inače moramo da obračunamo porez. Zbog brzine kojom je organizacija rasla, lako je zaboraviti da je 28.Jun registrovan kao neprofitna organizacija 31.6.2012.

Još jednom, iz dubine duše, hvala vam, Filip Filip, predsednik 28.Juna

P.S. Obećavam da ću paziti na svoje ponašanje na društvenim mrežama. Vreme je da odrastem
