A sunny day, perfect for our 19th anniversary

Even the birds in the trees know by now that May 25 is always the happiest day in the SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci. Why? Well, that’s easy: because it’s our Village’s birthday!

 This year, the delicious birthday cake for SOS Children's Village Ladimirevci had nineteen candles. To celebrate its nineteen years, this wonderful Village rich with warmth, love and joy gathered many cheerful kids from Ladimirevci and, of course, their special guests, children from SOS Children's Village Lekenik.

Playful, sun-kissed children gathered in the amphitheatre, where a host of creative workshops was held. The workshops offered lessons in how to make popular Minions, how to do the decoupage technique, how to make pendants, paint etc. Children and young people could also try their hand at painting giant puzzles, hang gliding, playing football and practicing various skills at several testing ranges. Everyone wanted to show off their creativity and abilities. The most popular by far was the testing range set up by the Order of Knights from the medieval fort Ružica grad, who made it possible for their little friends from Ladimirevci to try their hand at archery and sword fighting.

After the exciting and exhausting workshops, everyone needed to refuel. The long-time partner of SOS Children's Village, the supermarket chain Lidl, made sure there was enough delicious, hot bean stew for everyone. We mustn’t forget our cook, who personally supervised the cooking of the vast amounts of the bean stew.

No birthday is complete without a birthday cake and this one was no exception. And just so you know, we are talking about the biggest birthday cake you ever saw! Our partner Dr. Oetker once again managed to surprise us with a gorgeous, and even more importantly, delicious cake. Tired, but happy and well-fed, we said goodbye to our friends and announced an even bigger party for next year. We are already making plans for it!
