sajam-knjigaA promotion of the book "Letters to Jasmina" by Zivko Markovic was held in the premises of the Consulate General, on 22 June 2013. The book is a collection of letters written by orphaned children of SOS Decije selo from Sremska Kamenica to Jasmina Heglin Jugovic, who helped children from this orphanage in 1991-2001. Some 50 diaspora members, many of whom themselves took part in the charity activities during the 90s in Switzerland, were present. After the welcome words by Consul General V. Vukicevic, the author Z. Markovic spoke about the humanitarian work of J.H. Jugovic who helped children from this orphanage over a whole decade with an unusual persistence and solidarity. J.H. Jugovic received many acknowledgements and awards for her unselfish humanitarian efforts like Vojvodina Red Cross Diploma, being just one of them. She also received the key to SOS Decije selo in Sremska Kamenica. J.H. Jugovic was the first elected diaspora delegate from Switzerland to the Diaspora Assembly.
