Britcham helps ill children

THE BRITISH Chamber of Commerce in Slovakia presented the Children's Faculty Hospital on March 2 with a special dialysis device for children with kidney problems. The device was officially given in the presence of Ric Todd, British ambassador to Slovakia, Peter Ottinger, state secretary of Slovakia's Health Ministry, and Eva Dzurindová, an honorary guest and the director of Children's Assurance Link.

The chamber, with the help of its sponsors, managed to collect the sum necessary to buy the special device through humanitarian activities. In cooperation with the customs offices and the Finance Ministry, the device was imported to Slovakia, to the hospital at Limbova 1, in the Kramáre section of Bratislava.
