Crown Princess Katherine makes donation to Serbian children in need

Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia

Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia has donated to Serbian children in need through the Zvecanska Home for Children in Belgrade, Shelter for Children of Belgrade, and the Special Psychiatric Hospital Kovin.

A donation of two pyrographs, two wireless speakers, bedding, blankets, clothes, and diapers were made. These things were donated as the second part of an activity that began in March with aid sent to the Gerontology Centre in Belgrade. All donations were made through the Crown Princess Katherine Foundation.

Crown Princess Katherine issued a statement saying that she is very grateful to all supporters of her organisation for their help.

The Crown Princess said: “I am very happy that this action which the Lifeline Canada traditionally organises, was successfully completed this year as well. Many thanks to all the generous donors and to our dear friends from Serbian diaspora, who recognised the needs of institutions in Serbia and thus enabled a better life for many children and people who live in them and use the services of these institutions.”

Her Royal Highness continued: “Your selfless support has enabled many lives in Serbia and the Republic of Srpska to be changed for the better, you have brought them joy and smiles on their faces, and the feeling that they have not been forgotten. People of Serbia are always happy to know they have true and honest friends who, although living far from Serbia, do not forget those that are in need in our country.”
