Supporting Hospitals in the Fight against COVID-19 in Cooperation with Unilever and Mercata VT
The donation of 16,400 liters of Domestos products was distributed to hospitals throughout Serbia according to their priorities and needs.
In order to help health institutions in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, our team, in cooperation with Unilever and distributor Mercata VT, donated Domestos products worth over EUR 30,000. Twenty hospitals in Serbia received support: Bor, Ćuprija, Šabac, Valjevo, Subotica, Pancevo, Čačak, Kruševac, Kraljevo, Kragujevac, Niš, Novi Sad and Belgrade.
Our fundraising manager, Emina Potric and representatives of Unilever and Mercata VT, today symbolically handed over a part of the donation to the University Clinical Center of Serbia.
“At the beginning of our support in the fight against the pandemic, we focused on providing the necessary high-quality medical equipment for treating Covid patients as soon as possible. As the situation changed over time, so did the needs of health institutions. They also required other things that would help them function during the pandemic. Hygiene products are something health institutions always need, so we are delighted to partner with Unilever and Mercata VT and that we were able to provide a large amount of Domestos that will significantly help hospitals throughout Serbia.” said Emina Potric.
Support in the form of Domestos products will help hospitals provide the best possible hygienic conditions for the stay of their patients and medical staff, which is especially important during the pandemic.
“The pandemic does not subside and we, as a company, continue with material assistance to hospitals throughout Serbia in the form of Domestos products, which is necessary for them in order to maintain adequate hygienic conditions. From the very beginning, we reacted and sent help where we could, which is the responsibility and duty of all of us. We will monitor the further situation and we are ready to react in a timely manner throughout the year and provide products to all priority institutions. We are glad and proud to be partners in this positive story, which in a way helps in the faster recovery of our healthcare system,” said Ana Durkovic, marketing manager of Unilever in Serbia.
At the end of 2020, Mercat VT and Unilever also supported our New Year’s project “Future. On time”. We reconstructed and equipped rooms for education and entertainment of children in children’s hospitals in Belgrade: Institute for Maternal and Child Health Serbia “Dr Vukan Cupic”, Hospital for Pediatrics “Dr Olga Popovic-Dedijer” and University Children’s Clinic Tirsova.
