BELGRADE – The Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) will donate RSD 10 million as aid for the areas worst hit by the floods and establish a special fund for donations to help repair the damage, Bishop of Backa Irinej has said.

The SPC assembly was informed on Friday about the extent of the disaster that has hit Serbia, Republika Srpska and the entire region, he stated. The SPC will also seek help from other churches that can assist the people threatened by the floods, he pointed out.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
