Saint Steven's Serbian Orthodox Cathedral and International Orthodox Christian Charities
Humanitarian Relief Benefit

In response to the disastrous record flooding and terrible suffering of thousands of families in Serbia, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the whole Balkan region, Saint Steven's Serbian Orthodox Cathedral, in conjunction with International Orthodox Christian Charities , (IOCC) are raising funds to help the many victims of this natural disaster.

Epic floods have left dozens dead and thousands homeless and many more stranded in Serbia and Bosnia. The Nikola Tesla power plant, which provides roughly half of the country's electricity, is in the deadly path of a flood wave created by the heaviest rains to hit the region in 120 years. In Bosnia,evacuees are being placed in temporarily shelters like military barracks, but many more await help in areas that are not accessible yet.
