My foundation works hard on bringing aid to health institutions and on education of physicians in Serbia. I would like to announce that at the end of September we expect the donation of four hospital sterilizers, in the total value of 1.5 million American Dollars. These sterilizers will be donated to hospitals in Belgrade, Novi Sad, Zrenjanin and Kraljevo, and they were provided thanks to the great assistance of the C.U.R.E. project foundation from United States of America. Recently we also have donated the mamography worth 300,000 US Dollars to the Clinical center Nis. My husband HRH Crown Prince Alexander and I will continue to support our health institutions as much as we can”, said HRH Crown Princess Katherine.
