Thanks to the donation of the FC Shakhtar Donetsk and the pharmaceutical company PLIVA CROATIA amounting to two hundred and ten thousand kuna, Children’s Hospital Zagreb will purchase an HD endoscopy column for diagnostic and minimally invasive procedures.
Darijo Srna, the captain of the Croatian national team and the captain of the Ukrainian team Shakhtar Donetsk, presented this donation on behalf of his football club.
"I am happy that my teammates supported this initiative and selflessly participated in fund raising. It is our great pleasure to be able to help others”, said Darijo Srna, a famous member of our national team.
Marko Đerek, Commercial and Hospital Director, and Jelena Čabo Aras, Operating Manager Rx Drugs, presented this donation on behalf of PLIVA CROATIA Ltd.
"We try to help physicians and other healthcare providers in our common effort – patient care. We are glad that the Children’s Hospital will use these funds to purchase the HD endoscopy column, which will greatly improve the quality of treatment and speed up the recovery of little patients”, emphasized Marko Đerek, Commercial and Hospital Director.
The HD endoscopy column for diagnostic and minimally invasive procedures is used in the diagnosis and treatment of urogenital diseases in children. It is most often used in children’s urology, but also in ORL, gastroenterology and pulmonology.
"This valuable donation will result in an improved quality of treatment and better healthcare for more than 500 children annually, and it will shorten their hospitalization, mean less pain and speed up recovery”, said Zoran Bahtijarević, M.D., thanking Shakhtar Donetsk and PLIVA for their donation on behalf of the Children’s Hospital Zagreb.
