- Chairs and a table should arrive from the people from Krusevac, I have everything else. I have electricity, warm water, bathroom, everything that I need. I am not sitting in the dark like before, I am watching TV. My sister started visiting me in the last few months, so I am not always alone - said Jovan.
Right after the media published the story about the "Serbian Huckleberry Finn", help started arriving in Vrmdza from all sides, from the people from our country and from the people from abroad. The unknown donator paid for the electricity debt of Jovan's father in the amount of 200.000 dinars.
