“The occasion for my today’s visit is a great donation, in the value of 90,000 dollars, thanks to which the hospitals’ bathrooms were reconstructed and new doors and windows were purchased. The donation has been provided through the Lifeline Chicago office, whose patron I am,” said Her Royal Highness during the opening of the hospital.

Dr Aleksandra Gavrilovic, the director of the Psychiatric Hospital Kovin warmly thanked HRH Crown Princess Katherine, Lifeline Chicago and The John and Mildred Medic Wuchenich Foundation for their great help.

Last month, the Serbian Crown Prince Couple held a series of charity events throughout Canada.  So for her dedication to charitable work, the Crown Princess received the Pope Francis Award for Charity and Leadership.

The Crown Princess has always done charitable work. During her interview with Royal Central this summer, the Crown Princess said: “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. So when you pray, you have to make sure that is what you want.”
