Crown Princess Katherine delivered 500,000 euros worth of medical equipment and supplies to the Clinical Hospital Center Zemun with the help of Dr. Douglas Jackson, the President and CEO of Project C.U.R.E.
The United States Ambassador to Serbia, Mr Kyle Scott, was also present at the hospital where various medical equipment and supplies are necessary for the functioning of the Zemun hospital.
The equipment and supplies were delivered by a special container thanks to Dr. Douglas Jackson and the Project C.U.R.E (Commission on Urgent Relief and Equipment). The Project works in cooperation with Crown Princess Katherine’s Foundation.
Crown Princess Katherine said: “I am very grateful to Dr. Douglas Jackson and the Project C.U.R.E. for the cooperation we have built, and to Ambassador Scott for being present with us today. I am certain that the medical equipment and supplies will be valuable for doctors and nurses in Zemun hospital and that it will make their work easier.”
This is not the first time Project C.U.R.E has helped Crown Princess Katherine. Together, they brought four new modern sterilizers worth 1,400,000 euros to hospitals in Novi Sad, Belgrade, Kraljevo and Leskovac.
Crown Princess Katherine added: “I believe this is just the beginning of a great cooperation with Project C.U.R.E. and that we will make progress together in the mission of improving the conditions of treatment for our citizens and equipping hospitals throughout Serbia.”
Professor Dr. Dragos Stojanovic, Director of Clinical Hospital Center Zemun, thanked Crown Princess Katherine and Dr. Douglas Jackson for the medical equipment and supplies they delivered. He explained how they have made it possible for easier functioning of all departments of the hospital.
