Story by Maja Novak
[MY MOM AND DAD NEED YOUR HELP] Ever since I can remember, my parents have been working tirelessly to provide for me and my sister. And they succeeded - put both of us through college and taught us how to be people first. Good people. Mom works as a non-medical staff in a hospital, dad is a construction worker.
Mom is hilarious and positive, strong woman who has beaten cancer; Dad is a quiet, humble, hardworking man who prides himself with never in his life asking anyone for anything. 15 years ago, they took up a loan to build a new house, something that, not unlike a car, we never had. We were overjoyed that we had finally acquired a place of our own. A home.
On Monday, March 16th, we paid the last installment of the loan. But on Sunday, March 22nd, not even a full week after the loan was repaid, two strong earthquakes, magnitude 5.5 and 5.0 degrees Richter, with the epicentre near our house, (Medvedski breg 18), destroyed our home in a matter of seconds. Everything that my parents, sister and I sacrificed for years was ruined.
According to the statistician - the house is no longer safe and no one can live there anymore. Unfortunately, it is marked for a demolition. The city of Zagreb offers a sum of mere 5% (!!) of the damage figure, we don't know what to expect from the state, but are used to expect nothing at all.
Although I know that we are far from being the only ones affected by the earthquakes, and while we are grateful for being alive and well, our hearts are broken. It is estimated that 20 000 EUR should be collected for the material and construction of a smaller, modest house. My sister and I will give everything we have within all of our financial power, but one does not need to have a degree in mathematics to know that we will not succeed on our own ... So I ask for your help. My friends and all other decent people, I know what the times are like, but if you can, please help us.
Every € will be put to a good purpose and passed on to our other impacted neighbours that are in need. Please pass this on to all good people who would like or could help. If we ever receive state aid, we will give every cent we will have left to those in need. Because we know we're not the only ones. Because that is how our heros, Tonka and Branko, raised us. To be people first. Good people.
From the bottom of our hearts - THANK YOU! Ana, Maja, Antonija and Branimir Novak

Tužna priča obitelji Novak
Bitka ovih roditelja da poštenim radom pruže svojoj djeci nešto više traje gotovo 30 godina. Odškolovali su dvije kćeri i svojim primjerom naučili ih kako da prije svega budu ljudi. Dobri ljudi.
Mama je zaposlena u bolnici na centrali, tata je građevinski radnik. Mama je, urnebesno smiješna i pozitivna, jaka žena koja je pobijedila rak; tata je tih, skroman, vrijedan i staložen čovjek koji nikada u životu nikog nije tražio pomoć.
Prije 15 godina digli su kredit za izgradnju nove kuće, nešto što, kao ni automobil, nikada nisu imali. Bili su presretni što su napokon stekli mjesto gdje su svoji na svome. Lokacija - Medvedski breg pokraj Markuševca i Čučerja.
ponedjeljak, 16. 3., roditelji Novak otplatili su zadnju ratu tog kredita. Ali u
nedjelju, 22.3., ni punih tjedan dana nakon otplate kredita, dva jaka
potresa, magnitude 5.5 te 5.0 stupnja po Richteru, s epicentrom
nedaleko kuće, na adresi Medvedski breg 18, su u par sekundi
razorili dom za kojeg su se roditelji godinama
Po riječima statičara - kuća više nije sigurna za život, kuća je za rušenje.
Grad Zagreb nudi tek 5% (!!) od cifre štete za obnovu. Procjena je da za materijal i izgradnju skromnije prizemnice treba skupiti 200.000,00 kuna.
Dobri ljudi, pomozite ako možete i koliko možete jer svaka kuna će dobro doći da pomognemo obitelji Novak u ovoj iznimno teškoj životnoj situaciji!
Hvala od srca.

Thank you all my dear friends and other good people for supporting my family through this campaign. My mom and dad are extremely grateful and all thanks to you! Together with the money that we raised offline, we can now start planning to buy a new property and are waiting. . . . .
