Crown Princess Katherine provides much-needed donations to the Serbian Health Service

Even though the Serbian Crown Prince Couple is in voluntary quarantine in their castle outside Belgrade, they are continuing to work from home to improve the situation in Serbia during the coronavirus pandemic. Crown Princess Katherine has been helping to provide support through her charity-organisation in the last few weeks.

This week the Crown Princess helped getting urgently needed accommodation for doctors who are currently working at the Clinical Centre of Serbia and who are at the forefront of the fight against coronavirus. As a result, the doctors will now be accommodated just 7 minutes’ walk from the Clinical Centre of Serbia for the period of two weeks.

Her Royal Highness said in a statement: “I am very grateful to Roaming Networks and Enetel Solutions companies who responded promptly to my Foundation’s call and realizing the importance of this help provided a donation for doctors at the Clinical Centre of Serbia. It is very important to stand up united against this virus and to express our appreciation by taking care of each other. I hope that the big-hearted donors, who are helping Serbia in this time of crisis, such as Roaming Networks and Enetel Solutions companies, will serve as an example for others to step forward and provide their resources to combat the danger that is threatening us all”.

Earlier this week Crown Princess Katherine’s Foundation organized a donation for free meals to the medical staff fighting coronavirus in both KBC Zvezdara and Zemun Hospital. Her Royal Highness then said: “Over the next 30 days, 50 meals per day and beverages will be delivered to these Hospitals. Due to coronavirus and long hours, medical doctors and nurses are on duty day and night. During these difficult times, we must think as well of our heroic doctors and nurses and their wellbeing, so they can continue working and doing the great job they are doing”.

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.
