The year 2020 was a year of great challenges and difficulties for each of us, but also for our community and the society as a whole. However, even in difficult times, many individuals in Serbia provided assistance to those in need in various ways, and proved with their heroic deeds that humane and good people live in Serbia. As a token of our gratitude, the "Benefactor" award has been granted in the Year of Solidarity and Cooperation, as proposedby the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Policy.
