Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia visited a home for people with disabilities in the Serbian city of Stamnica earlier this week. The main objective for the visit was to deliver a van for transporting disabled people, a vehicle given as a donation from the Crown Princess`s foundation.

The donation, worth 13.500 Euros, was provided with the help of the Lifeline Chicago Humanitarian Organization, whose patron is HRH Crown Princess Katherine, and in memory of Milica Malesevic. Mrs. Malesevic was a lifelong supporter of the Serbian Royal Family’s work to improve Serbian living standards.

For the last several years Crown Princess Kathrine and her organization has been making donations to the Stamnica home. Just recently, the royals visited the centre to deliver funds for 10 hospital beds with anti-decubitus mattresses for adults, 5 children’s hospital beds with mattresses and other medical equipment worth over 10.000 Euros.

Additionally, a donation worth 5,000 Euros was presented for rearranging the Home’s yard with plans to construct a summer classroom and place garden tables and benches. This is also provided by the Lifeline Chicago Humanitarian Organization.

Lifeline works directly with the HRH Crown Princess Katherine Foundation in Belgrade to provide critically needed humanitarian aid to the people of Serbia regardless of religion or ethnic origin, with a focus on aiding disabled children, orphans and working with medical institutions to improve health care throughout the country.

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.
