These women from Cuprija have great hearts, Serbia is proud of them: They did the most beautiful thing for people in hospital (PHOTO)
To cheer up the young ones is beautiful, to cheer up the elderly and sick is humane
Everybody give presents to the youngest for New Year, but the members of the association "Golden Age" from Cuprija decided to do something entirely different!
They bought wool and they knitted scarves, hats, socks and slippers at their homes.
They brought the entire assortment of handicrafts for the winter to the hospital and gifted it to the patients on the Thoracic ward department.
- Everybody was thrilled because there are mostly elderly on that department and they are always cold in there. They heat the rooms in the hospital, but after 10 PM, when the radiators cool down, it becomes chilly, so the patients use extra blankets, put scarves on, hats or what ever they have - said Leposava Mijuskovic, one of the gift givers.
She shows how the patients feel like because she used to work as a Head Nurse for many years in the same hospital.
But, her younger colleagues did not forget about her and they call her the woman of great soul and heart.
No matter the name - "Golden age" - which associates to elderly ladies, this association gathers all women that want to creatively use their free time.
And the humanitarian action they organized in the hospital is not the only one they did.
In September, they prepared gifts for all first grade pupils, each of 245 student received hand made pen stand or something similar.
Mijuskovic said that the first graders were very happy because that was their first experience in school.
