OMV Petrom donates 10 million Euro to Romania’s first Paediatric Oncology and Radiotherapy Hospital
OMV Petrom announced that it would provide a sponsorship of 10 million Euro to Asociatia Daruieste Viata’s project to build the first Paediatric Oncology and Radiotherapy hospital in Romania. The hospital is being built without any support from the Romanian state, using only donations from civil society and the private sector.
“I think this is the largest amount ever donated in Romania. We hope that private companies won’t be the only ones to contribute in the future, but also the Romanian state,” said Oana Gheorghiu, one of the founders of Daruieste Viata.
Oana Gheorghiu added that the donation will also be used to repair the heating system for both the new hospital and the old Marie Curie hospital, which are located next to each other. “We will also link the two hospitals to a school and we will conduct medical training thanks to the amount donated by OMV Petrom,” she said.
