SZC. – In an effort to contribute to better and more efficient medical treatment of the local population by supporting public health, Serbia Zijin Copper donated (May 19) a modern ambulance worth six and a half million dinars to the Emergency Department of the Bor Health Center in Bor. The Company undertook to provide the same donation for the Health Center in Majdanpek as soon as possible, so a letter of such intentions was signed at the ceremony of handing over the keys to the new ambulance, held on the plateau in front of the Bor health institution.
– This is an important day for the Bor Health Center because we receive a valuable and much-needed ambulance as a gift. I am proud and happy about that, so I want to say a big thank you to the Company Serbia Zijin Copper, which met our needs and allocated considerable funds for the purchase of such a vehicle. For the territory it covers and which is under the jurisdiction of the Health Center in Bor, it is almost superfluous to say how important it is, in the sense of reaching a site at the right time, and in the sense of reaching each of our citizens whose health condition requires emergency medical care. With this gesture, Serbia Zijin Copper once again showed that it is a highly responsible Company, which listens to the needs of the local environment in whose territory it operates and cares about the public health of all citizens, not just its employees. This is not their first donation in the field of health, and I hope it will not be the last – said the director of the Bor Health Center, Dr. Vesna Radosavljevic.
–The goal of the Company is “development of mining for the benefit of the community”, so we are very committed to supporting the development of local communities where we operate as well as to promoting employment. At the end of April, the Company employed more than six thousand people. Out of that number, close to 5,900 employees are citizens of Serbia, i.e. the local population. Their average monthly net salary is more than 105 thousand dinars. The Company also does business with more than a thousand domestic suppliers and contractors, so the number of directly and indirectly created workplaces is around 8,000 – said Zou Gang.
The ceremony in the Bor Health Center was attended by the leaders of Bor and Majdanpek, Aleksandar Milikić and Dragan Popović, and the director of the Majdanpek health institution “Dr. Veroljub Cakić” Dragan Fudulović, who signed a letter of intent to provide the same donation for the Health Center in Majdanpek with the Manager of the Majdanpek Branch of Serbia Zijin Copper Branislav Tomić.
– I have been working in healthcare for 33 years and I can safely say that a vehicle equipped like this has not been seen in our Department so far. It will certainly contribute to faster, better, and improved provision of services to all citizens because medical devices include: a defibrillator with monitoring, an ECG device for monitoring vital functions of patients and timely response in case of sudden cardiac arrest, oxygen therapy device, oximeter, aspirator, immobilization set and more. I am especially happy that the ambulance is equipped with a “vest” for traffic and industrial trauma – said Bućan Mihajlović.
The Deputy Director of Serbia Zijin Copper Jason Zhang handed over the keys to the new ambulance to the director of the Bor Health Center, and after that, all the guests, accompanied by the host, visited the Emergency Department.
