For free accommodation for children with cancer and their families

The associations “Always with Children” and the Association of Good People “Ognjište” are organizing a humanitarian action called “Three Million Steps – for free accommodation for children with cancer and their families.” The action will start on May 12, 2022, in Omoljica near Pančevo and will end on May 22, 2022, at the Ostrog Monastery.

For parents of children coming from all parts of Serbia for treatment in Belgrade, the association “Always with The Children” has provided accommodation in an apartment in Smiljanićeva Street. This apartment is equipped to be a temporary home for children and their parents, and in the past four years, 49 children with their parents have stayed there. In addition to accommodation, the Parent’s Corner represents an oasis of support provided by association members, who, as parents themselves, have gone through this unfortunate experience with their own children. For parents of children with cancer, association members help them accept the diagnosis, alleviate fears, and maintain their spirits. This place represents the home of an already large family.

Five determined members of the “Ognjište” association: Slavko Radojčić, Aleksandar Prešern, Aleksandar Šekularac, Stanko Balaban, and Jovan Crnjin, have decided to help cover the accommodation costs in the Parent’s Corner. The five of them will walk from Omoljica near Pančevo to Ostrog for ten days, covering three million steps for the little fighters and their families, aiming to raise funds that will provide 365 days of free accommodation for children with their families in the Parent’s Corner.

One step at the cost of 0.436 dinars times 3,000,000 equals the amount of 1,308,000 dinars needed to be collected.

You can purchase steps by transferring funds to the “Ognjište” association’s account 340-11024157-94 with the reference “step for children”; by sending an SMS to 7175; or via PayPal:
