  1. Kada bi svaki Srbin koji zivi u Americi uplatio samo 1$ za borbu protiv Ebole, mi Srbi koji radimo sa obolelima od ove opake bolesti, bi bili presrecni, svakome ko moze da pomogne se zahvaljujem unapred.

      “If every Serb living in America paid only $1 for the fight against Ebola, we Serbs who work with patients suffering from this disease would be overjoyed. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.”
