"EULEX has proven to be very helpful with donations of different kinds also in the past. Until now, we received two ambulances for the University Clinical Centre Pristina and Regional Hospital in Kaçanik/Kačanik which helped our work, said Limani. The medical equipment received today will be a big help for us, it can be used either for intensive care or in the emergency center, she adds.
