Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine visited the Clinical Centre of Serbia’s (CCS) Gynaecology and Obstetrics Clinic (GOC) in Belgrade today and donated two General Electric ultra sound machines worth 64,000 Euros and one colposcopy monitor worth 7,000 Euros, to Professor Dr. Aleksandar Stefanovic the general manager of this health institution. This donation was made possible through a grant received by the Foundation of HRH Crown Princess Katherine from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation of America.
The friends of Their Royal Highnesses, the Foundation Stavros S. NIARCHOS has helped the Crown Princess Katherine Foundation through their health grants over the years. Through one such grant they supported the purchase of a mobile digital mammography unit for the Clinical Centre in Nis, which examined over 100,000 women during 7 years. They also donated an ultrasound machine and a workstation for the mobile mammography unit. The value of that donation was over $800,000.
Crown Princess Katherine has been helping the Gynaecology and Obstetrics Clinic in Visegradska Street for years, through her humanitarian foundation. This July she visited the GOC and delivered much needed air conditioners. In addition, Her Royal Highness donated two transport beds with mattresses, blankets, pillows, towels, linens, personal hygiene items, diapers and wipes. All this was ensured thanks to the dedicated work of Lifeline Chicago Humanitarian Organization, whose patron is Crown Princess Katherine.
This May, Her Royal Highness donated an ultrasound machine with three probes for breast examination, biopsy and gynaecological examination, worth 30,000 euros, to this health care institution. HRH Crown Princess Katherine will continue to help the Clinical Centre of Serbia’s Gynaecology and Obstetrics Clinic.
