Dear Friends of SAMA,
We are very happy to report that the SAMA Fall 2014 Fundraiser was a great success!
We reached our goal of raising $15,500 toward the purchase of an ultrasound system for the Health Center in Požega. The Fall 2014 Fundraiser began with a jazz concert, held on November 7th, which brought in almost $10,000. Donations from all over the country continued coming in and on December 5th we reached our $15,500 target. At this time, having completed all the necessary documentation for the purchase of the ultrasound system, we expect it to arrive at the Požega Health Center within four to six weeks as of the date of this letter. (Update Jan 23rd, 2015: The ultrasound system was delivered to the HC in Požega on Jan 20th 2015).
Thanks to your generosity this year, SAMA has been able to help communities in need across Serbia. In addition to the Health Center in Požega, we provided medical aid to health centers in Brus, Krupanj, Subotica, Paraćin, Mali Idjoš, Svilajnac and Ćuprija, in addition to Project Požega. The medical staff and patients at these centers are thankful for your support. It really means a lot to them, and we hope that you all feel a great sense of accomplishment!
