For the second time, our Embassy welcomed the International Ladies' Benevolent Society's General meeting.
Wife of the Ambassador Mrs. Ivona Mrkic warmly greeted distinguished ILBS member fellows, one of which was the mother of Princess Takamado. Third Secretary Ms. Kovac invited ILBS to support the humanitarian action of "Darjasan no Kai" group, aimed to help the fundraising needed to save a life of gravely ill Serbian national Ms. Darja Kostic.
The ILBS members are also active in support of volunteer work of NGO "Actions for Children in Crisis", which assists ethnic and refugee groups in need, largely elderly and children, in Serbia and especially Kosovo province.
