The only one who didn’t forget them: The Sinadinović family with Hida Muratović

On the outskirts of Zubina Potok, a Serbian municipality in the north of Kosovo, in a rented room for which, as she knows and knows how, she has to come up with 100 euros a month, Aleksandra Sinadinović (27), a single mother of Lazar (11) and Katarina ( 9), students of the fifth and third grade of elementary school.

Aleksandra suddenly found herself in a difficult and almost hopeless situation, by a play of evil fate, after her husband, Mirko Sinadinović, died in December 2019. prepared wood for the winter for the neighbors. Since then, for Alexandra and her children, every day has been a great challenge, uncertainty and struggle for bare survival.

We stayed in a rented room without anything, since I don’t work, and only later we received social assistance of 120 euros, we had to feed the children, clothe them and send them to school, buy them books and school supplies. If it weren’t for the help of the closest relatives, especially the brother-in-law and father-in-law, they would probably stay on the street, because it is not easy to provide 100 euros for rent, plus electricity, firewood, food… I would do anything, but nothing works here and it is almost impossible to find a job, and everything is very expensive – Aleksandra laments and points out that she does not know how much longer she will last and that the severe pain forced her to ask for the help of good people from our diaspora.

– Relatives managed to collect money and buy us a plot here in Zubin Potok, they couldn’t anymore, we hoped for help from the municipality, they promised us help with building a house, but everything remained on promises – she says, sighing and barely holding back tears, this young mother.

They dream of their warm home.

Modest room: Social assistance for rent

– The children and I dream of a house, at least with one room and a bathroom, which would be ours and for which we would not have to spend the entire social assistance every month, if we had our own roof over our heads, it would be much easier for us, at least we would not threatened us with the necessity of staying on the street, and we would have enough left over for food and other essentials – points out Aleksandra and humbly, shying away, begs all good people to help her improve her life and that of her children at least a little.

– We are planning to once again, in addition to the diaspora and the readers of “Vesta”, turn for help to the humanitarian Hido Muratović, one of the few benefactors who has not forgotten us, the municipality of Zubin Potok, the Office for Kosovo and Metohija, the humanitarian organization Serbs for Serbs and others who could to help us – adds Aleksandra.

Without job

The remaining Serbs in Zubin Potok and in other municipalities in the north of Kosovo live a difficult life, because due to the “border” in Jarinje and Brnjak, almost all the factories that were once built by Serbia are closed (there were ten of them in Zubin Potok alone), and all the money from the lake and Gazivode dams are harvested by Albanians in Pristina, and many people have lost their jobs and livelihoods and are forced to live on symbolic social assistance or to move.

An appeal to humane readers

We invited our readers a year ago to help Aleksandra and her children, the first aid then quickly arrived from the well-known humanitarian and our associate Hido Muratović, three of our readers also contacted and sent a total of 300 euros to the Sinadinović family, and since then, unfortunately, everything has stopped, the donations have dried up, there is no money to start the house, the life of Aleksandra, Lazar and Katarina is even more difficult and uncertain, that’s why we again appeal to all good people to help them.
