Novi Sad, 24 December 2022 – The Company MK Group organized the distribution of New Year’s packages for children from the National Association of Parents of Children with Cancer NURDOR. The gathering in a festive atmosphere took place at the Parents’ House in Novi Sad, and the ceremony was completed by the presence of Santa Claus.

On behalf of MK Group, gifts were presented to the children by Jovan Purar, Director of the company and Director of MK Group’s Legal and General Affairs. “Holidays are a period when families traditionally get together and enjoy the time they spend together. For those who have gone through a period of struggle and uncertainty, this time of year has even greater significance. The company MK Group has been supporting the Association and our youngest fighters for years, and we are proud of the long-term cooperation we have with NURDOR. Improving the quality of treatment and life of children suffering from cancer in Serbia is a common mission of all of us to which everyone can contribute in their own way,” said Jovan Purar, Director of the Company and Director of Legal and General Affairs of MK Group, on this occasion.

In anticipation of the holidays, MK Group, in cooperation with NURDOR, made the effort to make the little ones and their parents feel as comfortable as possible.
„A big thank you to MK Group, which traditionally donated beautiful packages to us, this year as well. We don’t have enough adequate words to thank you for everything you have done for the children and our Association for the last ten years of our cooperation. Thank you for being a socially responsible company and for recognizing NURDOR as a partner in creating a better world for our youngest fighters,” said Joland Korora, president of the NURDOR Board of Directors.

“Holidays are a great occasion for socializing and giving gifts. Thank you to MK Group, which did a great deed 10 years ago by donating the Parents’ House to those who need it the most, namely children suffering from malignant diseases, brave fighters. The existence of a parental home is of particular importance, because children and parents feel better in such a pleasant environment and more easily tolerate further treatment, which is usually long-term”, said Prof. Dr. Gordana Vilotijević Dautović, director of the Pediatric Clinic of the Institute for Health Care of Children and Youth of Vojvodina.

The first parental home on the territory of Vojvodina was established in 2013 in Novi Sad, when Miodrag Kostić, the president of MK Group, gave his family home worth 1.5 million euros to the Institute for Health Care, Children and Youth of Vojvodina in Novi Sad in cooperation with NURDOR. It is intended for children who come from the interior parts of country accompanied by their parents, during their treatment for malignant diseases, and this type of accommodation is one of the forms of psycho-social support, which plays an important role in the healing process. So far, more than 120 families have found their place under the shelter of this home.
