Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia has, through her Foundation, delivered a brand new Toyota to Cacak General Hospital, worth 10,000 Euros for the transport of patients from Cacak and the surrounding area for chemotherapy and dialysis to the hospital as well as other needs of the hospital.

During the handover, Her Royal Highness said: “My last visit to this hospital was only a month ago when I delivered medical equipment to this hospital worth 40,000 Euros. Then I found out about the urgent need for this vehicle. Thanks to Mr Lukic, CEO of Toyota Srbija, who was willing to help my Foundation, we reacted very quickly and I am pleased to be able to deliver this valuable donation that will be used for transport of patients from Cacak and the surrounding area for dialysis to the hospital. This is a good example of how joint efforts can have a big impact”.

Crown Princess Katherine has been helping and providing necessary medical equipment to Serbia for more than two decades. Last year, the Serbian Crown Prince Couple held a series of charity events throughout Canada.  For her dedication to charitable work, the Crown Princess received the Pope Francis Award for Charity and Leadership.

Crown Princess Katherine’s Foundation has donated valuable medical equipment worth several hundreds of thousands of Euros to Serbian general hospitals this year, and the Crown Princess assured that her Foundation will continue supporting hospitals in the future, as well. The Serbian royal couple has, for many years, been working to improve the situation of people experiencing difficulties.

In 1993, Crown Princess Katherine founded the Lifeline Humanitarian Organisation which currently has offices in Chicago, New York, Toronto, London and Athens. This organisation, together with the HRH Crown Princess Katherine Foundation, works to collect money for medical equipment that has been delivered to numerous hospitals in Serbia.
