MK Group to offer free holidays for health workers

Free three-day vacations for healthcare staff will be provided at the company’s Grand Hotel in Kopaonik and Kempinski Hotels at Portorož and Savudrija

MK Group will offer free three-day vacations for health workers from Serbia, Slovenia, and Croatia. In June, July, and August, doctors and other healthcare staff from Belgrade’s Clinic for Infectious and Tropical Diseases, Vojvodina Clinical Centre, and dedicated Covid-19 hospitals in Ljubljana, Maribor, Celje, Golnik, and Zagreb will be able to stay at the Grand Hotel in Kopaonik, Kempinski Palace Potorož, and Kempinski Hotel Adriatic in Savudrija.

‘I thank MK Group for looking out for our health workers and letting them stay at their hotels and recover after the hard work they’ve put in and the success they’ve achieved. I’m sure that our medics will use this time well to recuperate, and, once they’ve rested well, will come back and continue to care for our health’, said Serbian Health Minister Zlatibor Lončar, who accepted the donation on behalf of the country’s health service.

Jovan Purar, CEO of MK Group, noted that the Covid-19 pandemic had shown that corporate social responsibility was not and could not be optional, but that it was a necessity for a humane and responsible society.

‘This is the idea that guided MK Group in offering free three-day holidays for 450 doctors and other health workers at its hotels in Serbia, Slovenia, and Croatia. We’re particularly happy to be able to welcome 250 staff of the Clinic for Infectious and Tropical Diseases and the Vojvodina Clinical Centre at our Grand Hotel in Kopaonik. This will be our small contribution to fighting the pandemic and, at the same time, a token of our deep gratitude for the sacrifices made in this effort by doctors and other healthcare staff’, Mr Purar concluded.
