ZAGREB, Dec 1 (Hina) – The Croatian Football Federation (HNS) on Monday donated HRK 200,000 (approx. €26,600) to the Varazdin Hospital to help it buy equipment necessary for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
Hospital director Nenad Kudelic said that the hospital continued to register an increase in the number of hospitalisations and that more and more relatively young people with increasingly severe symptoms were being admitted.
“This is just a continuation of our initiative in the service of solidarity, which has the ultimate goal of procuring the necessary equipment and medical supplies in Croatian hospitals during the coronavirus pandemic. We are extremely pleased to be able to help our healthcare professionals and patients to get through these difficult times as painlessly as possible. Health must be our first priority,” said HNS president Davor Šuker.
Former Croatia captain, Darijo Srna, and the ENNA Fruit company on Tuesday donated 15 tonnes of mandarin oranges to hospitals in Zagreb, Split and Osijek as well as two disinfection systems to be used at the provisional in-patient clinic set up at the Arena Zagreb sports hall.
The donations are intended for the KBC Sisters of Charity Hospital, Dubrava, Rebro, Clinic for Children’s Diseases in Zagreb and KBC Split and Osijek.
