“The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is our long-standing friend and partner, with which we have delivered medical equipment worth more than one million dollars to several health centers in Serbia over the past years. Only this week, besides the donation in Novi Sad, we will also provide donations for the Clinical Center in Nis and the Institute for Oncology and Radiology in Belgrade, totaling over $100,000. For my humanitarian work, most important are individuals and organizations with a big heart.
