We very much appreciate the private sector’s response to UNICEF’s call to combat COVID-19 and their contribution to the procurement of medical equipment necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic. Such mobilization of funds for UNICEF is crucial both for the regular programmes for children and in emergencies,” Regina De Dominicis, UNICEF Representative in Serbia, pointed out in March this year when all this has started.

The number of companies that responded to the UNICEF call indicates that there is a strong awareness in the business community that being together is a force that can help us.
One of the key elements of UNICEF’s global mandate is to respond to emergencies using its expertise and operational experience. In this way, and thanks to its rapid reaction, UNICEF Serbia contributes to mitigating the effects of the coronavirus on the normal functioning of the lives of children, young people and their families. Solidarity in difficult times is crucial to tackle the challenges we face together.
UNICEF is supportive of national efforts to protect the population through the procurement of critically needed equipment for the health care system, as well as providing hygiene products for the most vulnerable families and children.
“We greatly appreciate the contribution of the private sector to our work – both for regular programs for children and emergencies like the one, we are all now facing. The business community has shown true solidarity, and in a time of economic uncertainty, has committed part of its revenues to help society. I thank all the companies that donated to UNICEF to help us get rid of the coronavirus and save lives in Serbia” said Regina De Dominicis, UNICEF Representative in Serbia.
