EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!
For the past ten years (or more), Lifeline has received an unsolicited envelope from a gentleman in Cleveland that contains his regular donation of between $2 and $5, in cash.  The impact of his kindness and generosity is larger than the dollars that he has given.  If you are interested in setting up a regular monthly donation of $5 (or more) per month, please contact us at office@lifelinechicago.org for details.

UPDATES ON RECENT PROJECTS UNDERTAKEN BY LIFELINE CHICAGO

Her Royal Highness, Crown Princess Katherine, conducts personal inspections of the projects undertaken in her name to ensure that there is accountability for all funding provided by Lifeline Chicago. In the above photos, HRH visited the Gavrilo Princip elementary school in Zemun, the Plavi Cuperak school in Zeleznik and the Vasa Stajic Center to observe that new children's mattresses, computer equipment, television sets and furniture were delivered as promised.  HRH also inspected the physical renovations at Gavrilo Princip school to guarantee that the quality of the work was of high standards and that the planned renovations were completed.
