The money will be used to buy computer and video surveillance equipment for the Perka Vićentijević kindergarten in Obrenovac, for repairs to be done at the Milica Nožica kindergarten in Valjevo, to finish reconstruction works on the flooded basement space in the Bambi kindergarten in Požarevac, and to finish works to repair the main building of the Dečja Radost kindergarten in Svilajnac.

Those who took part in the humanitarian event earlier this month in Belgrade also donated books, textbooks and picture books. Beside Obrenovac, these will also be given to the Svilajnac kindergarten.

B92 thanks everyone who took part in the campaign.
