April 14th, 2021: SAMA Canada Status Update

SAMA Canada plans to start its activities with new projects hopefully in Q2 or Q3 of 2021. As you know we had to suspend our activities in 2020 due to ongoing pandemic.

Tu summarize, since we started we have invested over 13,000 CAD in 3 projects in Serbia:

  • In 2017 we helped with donation of new ultrasound system for the hospital in Pančevo
  • In 2018, we donated a new pediatric defibrillator to hospital in Loznica
  • In 2019, we donated 2 infusion pumps to the hospital in Kraljevo

The project we are currently working on is on donation to hospital in Pirot. SAMA-USA members have recently visited hospital in Pirot, and you can read more about their visit here.

You can read up to date SAMA-Canada financial reports here.

You can read up to date list of SAMA-Canada donors here.

We are looking forward to resuming our activities, and would like to thank you all for your support.

December 3rd 2017 Update

Since our first fundraising in June this year, SAMA-Canada was focusing on finishing paper work with registration, opening bank account and obtaining charitable status with Canada Revenue Agency.  Our next walk will take place on June 2 2018 and it will be advertised in Novine, a Toronto newspaper. In October our members supported Jovan Dučić organization during their annual gathering where they collect funds for purchasing the ambulance to be donated in Republika Srpska.  On our part small scale fundraising was done by our members, in the form of having a garage sale and collecting donations at the “slava’s”.  We are looking forward to continue our mission.

September 23rd, 2017: Novine about SAMA Donation
