Finished Reconstruction: Better Treatment Conditions in the 72-year-old Children’s Hospital
As part of our project “Future. On time.”, in the “Dr Olga Popović-Dedijer” pediatrics hospital, we reconstructed the hygienic parts of 12 children’s hospital rooms, which includes the renovation of tiles, faucets, bathtubs, sinks and toilets.
Late last year, we wanted to support healthcare institutions in their efforts to provide our youngest generations with the best possible treatment conditions. To that end, we implemented the project “Future. On time.” within which we completely renovated and equipped the rooms for learning and play in three children’s hospitals in Belgrade. One of the supported hospitals is the “Dr Olga Popović-Dedijer” pediatrics hospital, where children now have an adequate environment in the form of educational entertainment rooms in which they can feel at least just for a little bit as if they were at home.
Also, due to the hospital’s great need, our team, with the support of partners Henkel and Minotti, renovated the toilets in 12 children’s hospital rooms, as well as the hygiene corner, which includes the renovation of tiles, faucets, sinks and bathtubs. As the head nurse Dragana Palalić explained to us, now the employees of the hospital can provide patients with better conditions for care:
“Given that we are a secondary children’s hospital, we regularly have a really large number of patients. The hospital was founded in 1949, and that is why we regularly invest in its renovation, but support is always welcome. Due to other investments, so far we have not been able to renovate the hygiene corners in the hospital premises. However, with the help of the Foundation, after many years, we have achieved that as well. This novelty will significantly help parents, who are hospitalized here during the treatment of their children. “
In order for children to reach their full potential in learning, social skills, physical activity and emotional intelligence, they must first and foremost have access to quality health conditions. That is why we will continue to follow the needs of our youngest generations, in order to make sure that every child is given an equal opportunity for quality development.
