16. 9. 2014 Announcements

On August 6th, 2014, the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the AS CR, v. v. i., (IMG) opened a public collection aimed to help 14-year-old Katareeya Epp, who unfortunately died October 6th.


Our collection was closed on October 31, 2014.

By October 31, 2014, the sum collected on the account was CZK 2,835,633.52. 

Faculty Hospital Motol received the sum of CZK 2,268,796 to cover Katareeye’s treatment costs. 

There is still CZK 566,837.52 on the account of the collection. 

This sum will be used to support treatment of similar cases, i.e. cases of other foreigners living in the Czech Republic for a long time and not covered by public health insurance, for whom the costs of treatment obtained in the Czech Republic are unsurmountable. For more, see the letter to the Prague City Council.
