Supporting the “Battle for the Babies“ Initiative in Bosnia and Herzegovina

October 10, 2013

As part of the B92 Fund initiative “Battle for the Babies“, the GAZPROM retail network for Bosnia and Herzegovina has donated medical equipment for the care of newborns to a great health institution – the Cantonal Hospital “Dr. Irfan Ljubijankić“ in Bihać. The cantonal hospital “Dr. Irfan Ljubijankić“ has received a transcutaneous bilirubinometer and a patient monitor. In addition, this donation includes a medical aspirator and two syringe pumps, while the staff of the hospital in Prijedor also have at their disposal two bronchial aspirators and two infusion pumps. “After the disastrous fire that afflicted our hospital last summer, it was clear that the already urgent needs of the labour ward had become even more urgent. We are very happy that the GAZPROM retail network for Bosnia and Herzegovina and the B92 Fund have recognized those needs and made sure that the babies in Bihać were not deprived of quality health care,“ said Dr. Hajrudin Havić, Director of the Cantonal Hospital, expressing gratitude for the donation in a statement. After Bihać, medical equipment for the care of newborns will be delivered to the General Hospital in Prijedor as well. In the joint initiative of B92 Fund and the Gazprom retail network for Bosnia and Herzegovina, the total of about 60,000 KM has been collected. “We are witnessing a growth in the trust that consumers place in our brand in a little over half a year after the first GAZPROM petrol station was opened for work. It is therefore very important that the citizens recognize us not only on account of fuel and service quality, but also as a company that is socially responsible to the community in which it operates. Investing in a new a healthy life is our contribution to the creation of a health environment for future generations. Our company is resolute in its commitment to provide help where help is needed,“ said Branko Radujko, Director of the GAZPROM retail network for Bosnia and Herzegovina. So far, the funds for the total of 33 incubators have been collected in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the B92 Initiative. “I think that this donation sets a powerful example and sends out a message that babies, when they are born, do not know which country they have been born in, but they do know that they need care and loving attention. It is important that there indeed exist individuals and companies that understand this and pave the way through their activities to a happier future for all, “ said Veran Matić, President of the Board of Directors of the B92 Fund.
