SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci celebrates its 16th anniversary

SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci celebrated its 16th anniversary with the children from both SOS Children's Villages and numerous other guests, friends, colleagues, partners and friends.

SOS Children's Village celebrated its anniversary on May 25. Every year on this day, the children, SOS mothers and other co-workers open the doors of the SOS Village and their SOS houses to welcome the visitors and share their world with them. As always, this year’s celebration was attended by the children from both SOS Children's Villages and the local community, as well as young people and other numerous guests, friends and sponsors.
At the celebration, our children performed the Red Riding Hood. In their version, the grandmother, wolf, hunter and Red Riding Hood are friends who delight in each other’s company. In addition to various performances and athletic competitions, the entertainment program also included a number of creative workshops. The participants spent a pleasant, happy day outdoors. Also coming to the party were knights and bikers from the region, and we made a huge batch of goulash in our brand new giant pot. No birthday party is complete without the birthday cake, and this year, our colorful cake was provided by Dr. Oetker.
An eventful entertainment program, sunny day, white clouds in the blue skies, children singing and laughing, recitals and sketches performed all reminded us of how wonderful it is to be a child. The folk ensemble Ladimirevci invited us all to join the big circle dance called kolo.
“This celebration was designed to show, in our humble way, how grateful we are to everyone who supported us throughout the years. Hopefully, they will continue to do so in the future, while sharing the happiness and love we feel in this SOS Village. Through our work, we want to ensure the best possible conditions for the children who live in our Village as well as promote healthy development for everyone, not just the residents of the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci”, said Zoran Relić, the director of SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci.
In its 16 SOS houses, SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci provides home for 82 children ranging in age from infants to fourteen-year-olds. You can contribute to their happy development and become their friend by dialing 060 840 840.
