Humanitarian action in Perth
Humanitarian action entitled “You can as well” was held on 9 March 2013 at the Sports Center Madington in Perth. The action had a goal to collect funds for the Humanitarian organization Ana and Vlade Divac.
A special atmosphere had been felt since the first day of the notice of this humanitarian action in Perth and its peak was on 9 March with the arrival of Vlada Divac and His Grace Bishop Irinej of the Metropolitanate of Australia-New Zealand. The humanitarian action, which lasted all day, was planned and organized in a good manner. In order to make the action more successful the organizers invited all sports representatives of the Serbian organizations of Western Australia and all folklore groups who gladly accepted the invitation. Sports and cultural events lasted from 9 a.m. until late afternoon. Guests and visitors of this humanitarian event could enjoy in sport games (soccer, basketball, bocce, karate…) and in afternoon the review of folklore groups of the Western Australia and the folklore group from Geelong.
In the evening two documentary movies regarding the Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation were shown to the public. Vlade Divac and His Grace Bishop Irinej addressed the attendees. Vlade Divac talked about the essence of the existence of this Foundation pointing out his personal goal as well as the goal of the Foundation to have all refugees and internally displaced people in Serbia get their homes.
It is important to say that the Serbs from Perth obeyed their spiritual father, Bishop Irinej and in this humanitarian action they managed to collect 27.820 USD.
