With this project, PBZ Group collected more than 14 million kuna and realised 36 donations.

As part of the jubilee anniversary of PBZ Group’s humanitarian project “I do good every day/Činim dobro svaki dan”, Čakovec County Hospital received a welcome donation of 382,594.00 kuna. Owing to this donation, the hospital was able to purchase a digital EEG device, a respirator, a thermal therapy bed, and a vital function(s) monitor for the Department of Pediatrics and Neonatology.

The project “I do good every day” and the American Express card are marking 10 years of existence this year, and through them, the Group has been continually aiding two national projects for the benefit of children and young people. One of these projects is the special monitoring of children at neurological risk, and the second is aimed at providing better lives for children in homes and in social care. Funds collected by PBZ Group are donated to these projects at a 50:50 ratio.

Via this project, PBZ Group has so far collected more than 14 million kuna and has realised 36 donations, including 27 donations throughout the Republic of Croatia for the purchase of modern medical devices, and nine donations to social welfare institutions for the purchase of the required equipment.

“I’m glad that the funds we’ve collected for our project ”I do good every day” have helped Čakovec County Hospital via the donation of modern medical equipment that will enable the better treatment and a better time growing up for little patients from Medjimurje County.

The ”I do good every day” project kicked off ten years ago in order to help our community in the long term and on a continuous basis, and to those who need our help most: little patients and [other] children without parental care, and who have development difficulties.

We’re proud of the achievements we’ve attained over the ten years of our project: over 14 million kuna and 36 donations to pediatric wards, kids’ hospitals and social welfare homes, enabling the safer development for small patients and better living in social care homes in 25 cities and 19 counties.

Čakovec County Hospital is of particular importance for the treatment of smaller patients in Medjimurje County and I hope this new medical equipment will continue to contribute to their better treatment,” said Dinko Lucić, CEO of Privredna banka Zagreb.

“I’d like to thank PBZ Group for their valuable donation, which will provide better and faster diagnostics and the monitoring and treatment of our smallest patients. Early diagnosis and intensive treatment can prevent the development of diseases, or at least achieve the greatest possible potential for a child at neurological risk, which will by greatly assisted by the donated devices,” stated Dr. Robert Grudić, director of ŽB Čakovec.
