This was based on the practise of the humanitarian organizations in the West who have been doing the same for many years. There were many parents with children on the ceremony, and this activity was supported by Nada Grahovac, the Ombudsman for children of the Republic of Srpska. Dijana Mijatović, Aleksandra Stevandić Rakas, Maja Ulićević and Slobodanka Plavljanin, Ponos activists, thanked the Ombudsman for 140 gift-boxes for children up till the age of 10, which she donated to the Association to make those children happy. They also thanked Arie Livne, the Jewish cultural centre, for hosting the kids and their parents again this year. “We have decided to take part in the Box of Happiness project and to donate one part of the gift-boxes to the Association of single parents. I am glad to be a part of tonight’s ceremony. zahvalnice We are aware of single parents’ problems. It is necessary to have legislative amendments which would make single parents’ situation much easier, and we hope it will happen in 2017. I would like to thank the Arie Livne cultural centre for hosting this ceremony and I look forward to the future cooperation,” said Nada Grahovac, the Ombudsman for children of the RS. For supporting the work of the Ponos Association 20 certificates were awarded to individuals, organizations, institutions, sports clubs, as well as to JCC Arie Livne and its director Djordje Mikeš. “I am glad to have you here tonight. As a matter of fact, my mother was a single parent who raised two sons and I remember very well how hard it was to live through it. That’s why I want you to have grit and courage.”
