At the traditional 9th charity ball of the BELhospice centre, which took place on 1 December 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Belgrade Hotel, € 74,000 were collected to help cancer patients and their families. These funds will be directed to continue providing free palliative care to cancer patients and their family members through over 1,000 home visits and at the Day Centre of the first hospice in Serbia.

The ball was attended by about 300 members of the diplomatic corps, the corporate sector and individual philanthropists.

The Director of BELhospice Vera Madžgalj presented the results achieved in the previous 12 months and plans for future work. She pointed out that thanks to donor assistance in October this year, the first Hospice Centre opened in Belgrade. Besides free palliative care of cancer patients in the city, it provides the highest level of services to them and their families. She called all people of good will to continue to support the work of this unique organization in Serbia dealing with this noble and highly necessary mission.

The charity ball was supported by sponsors Harrisons, Manpower Group and Johnnie Walker, as well as a large number of donors, including Bel Medic, TeleGroup, Belupo, Generali Insurance, I&F McCann Group, BENU Pharmacy, ACB, Telekom Srbija, GSK, Banca Intesa, Despotika, Movem Fashion and Arhipro.
