OUR STORY

In the late 1990's, following years of political and civil conflict in the region, we identified a huge need for medical resources across the Balkans. Initially, we organized small transfers of medical supplies and medications from the U.S. with help from family and friends. However, we soon realized the potential to have a greater impact. We had a large enough community, who felt equally compelled to give back! We organized SAMA in 2009 with the goals to:

Provide humanitarian assistance through targeted donations

Support medical education and improve healthcare in general

Organize Serbian-American healthcare professionals living in the U.S.​

SAMA was registered in Maryland in 2009 and was granted 501(c)(3) status in September 2010. SAMA’ s activities are supported by its membership dues, donations, and grants. Education and Humanitarian programs will enable SAMA to achieve its planned exempt purpose.  These activities will be supported by volunteers, fundraising activities, donations, and grants.

WHY SAMA

Transparent

We are 100% transparent. From the selection of projects, to the collection of funds and implementation of projects, we document and share all of our progress with you. 

Grassroots

Our model is simple: people helping people. We have no hierarchy, no "middle-men", and no political , religious or other agenda. We simply want to help. With this model, we minimize overhead costs, form strong relationships, and remain inclusive.

Focused

We stay close to our mission at all times. All projects are carefully assessed for feasibility and impact, to ensure that your donations are maximized.
