Thanks to a heartfelt initiative by Maria Mustapić and Korana Bučić, Split’s leading lady restauranteurs and mothers themselves, the Children’s Clinic at the KBC Split Hospital is now fully equipped with free Wi-Fi, as a result of donations from fellow Split entrepreneurs which reached 90,000 kuna.
In an effort to give the children in hospital beds the same opportunities as their healthy peers, Mustapić and Bučić worked tirelessly in the spring, reaching out to local entrepreneurs and businesses around Split for donations to finally bring the children at KBC Split into the modern age.
And the response was overwhelming.
Namely, nine Split businesses came out to support the cause, including Pjaca hosteli, Centaurus, Pro integris,Bagatin Med, Strateški Consulting BM, Dalmatian Wines (Vinarija Rizman), Alternativna tura, Saint-Gobain građevinski proizvodi Hrvatska, and Smart Net.
Better yet, Split-based IT company Smart Net provided the WiFi and labor free of charge, leaving Mustapić and Bučić only to gather donations for the costs of equipment and cabling. Smart Net’s generosity didn’t end there, either, as they have offered to fund two years of maintenance for the service at the hospital!
All of the donors were acknowledged by the hospital staff and project leaders at a ceremony held at the Children’s Clinic of the hospital on Tuesday.
The donors and guests enjoyed a full spread of culinary treats crafted by none other than Brasserie on 7 and Zinfandel. Because is there any better way to say “thank you”?
Mustapić and Bučić extend their sincere gratitude and appreciation to all of the donors for making this dream a reality.
