8th BELhospice Ball

The eighth BELhospice charity ball, under the slogan “Let’s bond for the ones in need”, organised in partnership with hotel Hyatt Regency Belgrade, saw a total of €134,000 collected for help in the care of oncological patients in the advanced stages of the disease and for the construction of the first hospice in Serbia.

The charity ball, inspired by themes from films about the world’s most famous secret agent, James Bond, brought together more than 350 representatives of the diplomatic corps, the corporate sector and public figures, who donated funds by buying tickets and participating in auctions.

BELhospice Director Vera Madžgalj announced the completion of works on the reconstruction of the Hospice Day Centre in 2018, creating innovative services of the day centre and the acquiring of permits, adding that over 800 oncological patients were cared for during this year through 1,767 free home visits.

BELhospice is the only specialised charitable organisation in Serbia that has been providing palliative care completely free of charge to oncological patients and their families on the territory of Belgrade for the past 13 years.
