Niš City Mayor Dragana Sotirovski presented gifts to the mothers of the first-born girl and the first-born boy in 2021 in the amount of 100,000 dinars each, and expressed hope that more babies would be born in the city. “We have a great start in New 2021. The girl’s name is Vera (Faith), symbolically, she will give us faith in a better 2021 “, said the Mayor after visiting the maternity hospital with Assistant Mayor Sanja Stajić and the management of the Niš Clinical Center. “What saddened me a little was the fact that now about 200 fewer babies are born every year in Niš, and that is why we have to provide better conditions for mothers,” stated Dragana Sotirovski. The first boy was born to Danica Mihajlović, and the mother of the first girl in 2021 is Jelena Stanković.
