SAMA has three major spring fundraising events planned! Activities start in Chicago on May 11th, with a fundraising event for the Užice Hospital ultrasound system. Then, on May 21st in Washington D.C. and on June 3rd in Toronto, we will have fundraising events for the Pančevo Hospital ultrasound system.
Chicago, May 11th, 2017
The SAMA 2017 Chicago Fundraiser will be hosted by Branko Palikuća in his beautiful Amber Cafe, 13 N Cass. Ave, Westmont, IL.
We are collecting funds to purchase a new ultrasound system for Užice Hospital. This is the 4th largest hospital in Serbia and serves over 300,000 people, yet only has one functional ultrasound system. Our target is to collect $20,000 USD, which will be sufficient to procure new system. Learn more about this project by visiting our “Project Uzice” page.
Please join us for this event and support this great cause. You can make checks payable to SAMA, or contribute at www.serbianama.org through Paypal.
Washington D.C., May 21st, 2017
This year we will have our Fifth Annual SAMA Walk in Washington D.C.! This event has turned out to be a great success year after year. It is fantastic opportunity to spend morning with friends and family at the beautiful C&O Canal, and all for a great cause.
Together with our friends in Toronto, we will be collecting funds to purchase a new ultrasound system for the department of urology at Pančevo Hospital. More information about the SAMA project to help Pančevo Hospital can be found on the “Project Pančevo” page.
Please join us for this jubilee event! As usual, we will meet at Fletcher’s Boat House. All the details about the walk can be found on this page. You can contribute ahead of the walk directly on www.serbianama.org through Paypal, or you can make your checks payable to SAMA.

We are very excited about extending SAMA activities to Canada, and we that this inaugural event will be very successful! We are working on registering SAMA-Canada as a humanitarian organization and establishing bank and Paypal accounts for contributions from Canada. As we know more, we will make sure to post any updates on SAMA-Canada web site: www.serbianama.ca. We must note that until SAMA-Canada is fully recognized as humanitarian organization in Canada (expected by mid-2017), the donations are NOT tax deductible.
