„Serbs from America are helping our hospitals, safe houses, homes for children without parents, homes for elderly, children, and they do that every year! For Christmas and Easter they make special bags for each orphan with their name, toys, and clothes and shoes in their size. Only in this year they donated help to Serbia worth more than 200,000 dollars. I am very glad that we are here announcing the winning logo of Lifeline Chicago organization. I must say it is beautiful and that it was very hard to choose just one! The logo was made by the ones who are the most important to us – the children. This children are very familiar with the work of Lifeline Chicago. This organization whose patron I am, is helping Serbia, especially children, for 25 years already. I’m very proud to be a patron to this humanitarian cause and I would like to thank them for everything they did for Serbia and to emphasize how important diaspora is when it comes to humanitarian work“, said HRH Crown Princess Katherine.
