Eurobank provided RSD1.2 million for procuring oxygen flow metres for healthcare institutions in Serbia. The donation was executed via the B92 Foundation and the Serbian Philanthropic Forum, which initiated a humanitarian campaign aimed at improving the treatment of patients and working conditions for healthcare professionals in medical institutions in Serbia during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Our country is in the midst of an adverse health situation and we believe that it is an obligation of the whole society, especially of socially responsible companies, to express their solidarity and provide assistance to the healthcare system. By donating funds for procuring oxygen flow metres, the equipment necessary for oxygen therapy for virtually all hospitalised patients, we wish to contribute to an even better quality of conditions for treating our citizens infected with coronavirus,” said Slavica Pavlović, president of Eurobank’s Executive Board.
Eurobank regularly monitors and timely reacts to the society’s needs in responding to challenges and it has already participated in initiatives aimed at assisting the healthcare system of Serbia, as well as vulnerable social groups. Namely, at the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic, Eurobank was among the first to respond to UNICEF’s appeal and donated funds in the amount of RSD6 million for procuring medical and safety equipment for treating coronavirus-infected patients. The bank also provided necessary assistance to families of children with autism from the ‘Autism Valjevo’ Association and helped LICEULICE magazine vendors, who were in a particularly difficult situation during the state of emergency by purchasing part of the magazine circulation.
