    In a world engulfed in chaos, Pristaniste emerged as a refuge. In a challenging moment, it was as if providence pointed the way here. Kindness and humanity, all-encompassing support.

    A huge thank you to all of you! For shelter, food, and psychological assistance. Thanks to you, I escaped the feelings of loneliness and insignificance.

    I hope that all of us will build a good life, and someday we will meet not burdened by shared sorrow but to share our experiences and happiness.

    May God grant you all health and strength to go on with your sacred mission!

    See you in beautiful Montenegro!
