Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia will, in the next month, donate sterilisation medical equipment to the value of more than 1.4 million US dollars to hospitals all over Serbia. This is so far the largest donations ever made by the Serbian Royal Family to the Serbian people.
Thursday, Her Royal Highness, donated two patient monitors worth 21,000 US dollars to another child hospital in Serbia. This equipment was donated through the Lifeline New York Humanitarian Organisation, whose patron is Her Royal Highness.
“The reason of my visit to the Clinic of Neurosurgery at the Clinical Centre of Serbia today is a donation of two patient monitors and one television for the children’s department. This valuable donation is worth 21,000 dollars. This donation is a result of fundraising at the charity dinner in Boston. I thank very much for this donation to our people who live in Boston, as well as to Lifeline Humanitarian Organisation whose patron I am,” said Crown Princess Katherine.
As always, when the Crown Princess visits a hospital, she also brought toys, and she handed them out to the sick children.
In an exclusive interview with Royal Central earlier this summer, the Crown Princess said, “I am very happy that I have this opportunity. I had parents that taught me the joy of giving, not the joy of taking. And they didn’t just tell me; they lived their life by giving. They prepared me for my role without knowing what my future would be. I was very young, and when you learn the joy of giving when you are young, you never forget it. I prayed to God for an opportunity to give of myself since that is happiness, and God gave me Alexander and a whole country.”
In 1993, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine founded the Lifeline Humanitarian Organisation which currently has offices in Chicago, New York, Toronto, London and Athens. This organisation, together with “HRH Crown Princess Katherine Foundation,” works to collect money for medical equipment to be delivered to numerous hospitals in Serbia.
