Serbia’s Crown Prince Couple donate new ambulance

Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia visited last week the Serbian city of Krusevac to deliver a new ambulance to the Emergency Department of the Health Center in the city.

“This is a gift from our heart to this Health Center and for all the doctors, nurses and technicians who are heroes that work here”, said Crown Princess Katherine when she visited the city of Krusevac. The director and the staff of the Hospital thanked Crown Princess Katherine for her valuable help.

The donation of the new ambulance happened only a month since the royals delivered ten electric beds to intensive care in the same hospital. Upon that visit, Crown Princess Kathrine saw a lack of a proper ambulance and then promised that she will fulfil their need of an ambulance. The Crown Princess kept her word.
