Hemofarm Foundation Supports National Giving Day
The Serbian Philanthropy Forum, of which Hemofarm Foundation is a member, has launched a new campaign for the National Giving Day to raise funds for improvement of elementary education called “School of Good People.” The funds raised in this way will be used to furnish 60 elementary schools in 30 towns across Serbia with innovative teaching aids such as interactive boards, bee bot robots, or VR glasses intended for education of children with disabilities.

The National Giving Day, established by the Serbian Philanthropy Forum with the support of Ana Brnabic, the Serbian Prime Minister's Philanthropy Council, is held on October 9 every year, on the birthday of scientist and philanthropist Mihajlo Pupin, and aims to promote the culture of giving through providing aid to institutions of social importance.

Hemofarm Foundation supported the National Giving Day by donating funds to the project Battle for Knowledge of the B92 Fund and their initiative “Little Bees”, with the aim to procure modern teaching aids for all schools in Serbia for children with disabilities. These are bee-shaped robots that help in a creative way to learn letters, numbers, objects, animals, mathematics, nature, language, or any other area that the teacher may envisage.
