Serbian Flood Relief Effort in Australia
Dear SOYA Members & Friends,
Due to the death and great suffering inflicted upon the people of Serbia and Bosnia from floods not recalled in living memory, the Serbian government has announced 3 days of mourning, that is the 21st , 22nd, and 23rd of May.
Поводом смрти и великог страдања нанесено грађанима Србије, последица не памћених поплава, Влада Србије је прогласила тродневну жалост, т.ј. 21, 22 и 23 маја.
SOYA will be changing to the Black SOYA logo for the time being as a sign of mourning & solidarity for those in our motherland. We ask our community, our friends, and all whom read this to please send through a donation for our disaster relief fund, that will be sent to the people in need.

Donation to the Decani Relief fund
The Serbian Orthodox Youth Association of Canberra donates $1000 to the Decani Relief Fund in Kosovo. Due to a tragic event in the Serbian community, the second SOYA CAFE was not held and the donation is therefore taking out of the group's current funds, acquired during the first SOYA CAFE and the picnic which was held at the Monastery.
More information about the Fund and about ways that you can donate can be found on the following web page: http://www.kosovo.net/relief_fund.html
