Cycle Kosovo for Children 2018
The annual event “Cycling Kosovo for Children” organized for the fifth year in a row was attended by around 30 cyclists on the 4-day trip around Kosovo in support of the foundation “Action for Mothers and Children” was completed successfully.
The funds raised through the charity cycling tour will be used to deliver much needed equipment to the Neonatology Intensive Care Unit in Peja. This equipment is essential to measure the severity of blood infections in babies, allowing for prompt antibiotic therapy, proper duration of antibiotics, and treatment follow-up. This treatment is highly efficient as the results would be ready in 4 minutes, after a single blood draw. The use of this equipment is expected to improve the efficiency of care provided for newborn babies in Peja.
This year’s event was able to raise around 7,000 Euros through the contributions of companies and individuals who supported cyclists’ challenge. This event wouldn’t able to be successful without the support of Eulex, Kosovo Police, Devolli Corporation, Astes , BpB, Shtepiaku, EcoClean, On Line Studio European Autocare, Miqt Pub and Lulu’s Coffee and Wine. Our in-kind supporters were Cineplexx, Oliver Weber, Monroe Bar, Rudi’s Cake Factory, Ponte Vecchio, Siam Massage, Auto Service Zhushi, Shtëpiaku.
