Her Crown Princess Katherine hosted today children from International schools who gathered at the White Palace to take part in the “Children helping children – Easter April in Belgrade”, traditional project of HRH Crown Princess Katherine Foundation for helping children without parental care, Roma and refugee children.
HRH Crown Princess Katherine, accompanied by Ms Victoria de Silva, granddaughter of HRH Prince Tomislav and daughter of HRH Princess Katerina of Yugoslavia welcomed the children and said: “You have gathered here to paint Easter eggs and to help other, less fortunate children. My Foundation is running this programme for several years, and your participation and your help is very much appreciated. It is very important to understand that helping others and giving to others are the greatest things we can do in our life. That is something all of us should do.”
Young Serbian artists joined children from International schools to paint Easter eggs. The “silent auction” of Easter eggs and paintings was held at the White Palace, and all money raised would be used for buying Easter presents for children who would attend traditional Easter receptions at the White Palace on April 15. Children also brought presents with them.
Young ballerinas from the Royal Academy of Dance have performed a lovely programme for the guests.
This humanitarian event was organized in cooperation with Belgrade Open Art (BIA) Festival.
