Помоћ Кола српских сестара за српске ученике на Косову

Сва деца из српског села Кузмин, код Косова Поља, добила су новчану помоћ коју је сакупило Коло српских сестара из Сан Франциска. 

Поклон за осамдесеторо деце уручио је епископ западно-амерички Максим који је посетио Основну школу "Аца Маровић" и ово изоловано место у албанском окружењу.

"Драга децо, драги учитељи, желим да вам пренесем поздраве ваших вршњака из Сан Франциска и Америке. Они вам поручују, да тамо, у далеком свету, неко мисли на вас и жели да вам помогне у вашем селу, у вашем месту", рекао је владика Максим који је разговарио са децом.

Основна школа у Кузмину ради у тешким и неодговарајућим условима, а настава се одвија од првог до четвртог разреда. Њени ђаци су владики поклонили своје цртеже уместо разгледница за своје вршњаке у Америци.

"Заиста смо почаствовани овом посетом, био је ово прави празник за децу. Нама ретко ко долази, некако смо овде одвојени од света, али има добрих људи и хвала им свима", рекла је учитељица Сузана Андрић.

Коло српских сестара из Сан Франциска и Епархија западно-америчка годинама помажу српској деци у селима Косова и Метохије. У Кузмину живи око сто српских породица, приметан је тренд исељавања, али се земља и куће не продају Албанцима.
