Lifeline New York charity event at Le Cirque
 for blind children in Serbia

Lifeline New York Humanitarian Organization, under the patronage of HRH Crown Princess Katherine, organized a traditional charity lunch at Le Cirque restaurant in New York in aid of blind children in Serbia.

Belgrade, New York, 6 November 2013 – Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander II and Crown Princess Katherine, hosted a magnificent event that was also attended by HRH Prince Dimitri, Mrs. Betty Roumeliotis, sister of HRH Crown Princess Katherine and her son Mr. Gregory Roumeliotis,  H.E. Ambassador and Mrs. Milan Milanovic (Serbian Ambassador to UN Mission), Consul General Mirjana Zivkovic and her husband Mr. Ranko Mirkovic, Mr. David Paterson Former Governor of New York State, Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, wife of the United Nations Secretary General Mr Ban Ki-moon, and many other distinguished guests. 


Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine thanked the attendees on their support and good will on behalf of blind and visually impaired children in Serbia. According to official data there are more than 300 children up to 18 years old, who face huge problems in education and mobility. It should be noted that there are more than 12,000 blind and visually impaired people in Serbia that have never learned how to deal with their impairment.   


Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine’s long struggle to help Serbia’s people and children to have more dignified lives, medical treatment and opportunities to advance in education was presented at the charity lunch at Le Cirque restaurant. Lifeline New York’s Board President Mr. David M. Hryck spoke about activities of Lifeline New York, their beliefs and love for Serbia.

Former New York Governor David Paterson, who lost his eyesight as an infant, also gave a speech at the luncheon, touching on the importance of events such as this luncheon. He has no vision in his left eye and just 20/400 vision in his right eye, but has been tremendously successful. The support he received throughout his life allowed him to thrive, and it is critical to him that other blind individuals also get the care they so desperately need.
