Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine officially handed over a donation worth $ 57,500 today to the Center for Radiology of the Clinical Center Nis. The Princess Katherine Foundation made this important donation in cooperation with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation in New York.
“The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is our long-standing friend and partner, with whom we have, in recent years, delivered a mobile mammography to the Clinical Center Nis and other medical equipment worth over one million dollars. For my humanitarian work, the most important are individuals and organizations with a big heart. My foundation and I will continue our work to help the health of Serbia” – said HRH Princess Katherine in her speech.
