Students of the University of Maribor Raised Money for Children’s Hospital
Each year, the students of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Architecture of the University of Maribor with the support of the Students Council and the Students Society of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Architecture of the University of Maribor work successfully on the projects of public utility. Their humanitarian project, implemented for the seventh time in a row, has become a real pride of all Faculty members and students.
This year, the students have been raising money for the Children’s Paediatric Clinic to purchase a portable breathing apparatuses. The device allows young patients to breathe normally in the supine position.
As part of the humanitarian project, the students of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Transportation Engineering and Architecture of the University of Maribor have implemented a campaign called ‘Healthy Breakfast’ (Zdrav zajtrk), within which they were awarding the students of engineering programs with cocktails and organic coffee and were selling glass bottles. During the afternoon, they, together with the medical students working on the “Life Touch and Dr. Martin Bigtsa’s Credo” (Dotik življenja in primarija dr. Martina Bigca) project held a lecture and a workshop on “Breast Cancer and Healthy Way of Life”.
The students visited the paediatric clinic in Maribor and spent the first half of the day communicating with children, and in the evening they watched a movie within the Movie Night event — “Thank you for Smoking” (Hvala, ker kadite).
The final event of this humanitarian project was held on Thursday, 17 November 2016, in the Štuk Cultural Centre (Maribor) at 8:00 p.m. The project involved a concert by a well-known Slovenian bard and composer Vlado Kreslin, whose performance was attended by a large audience.
At the event, the students showed photos of past humanitarian campaigns and the current projects implemented this year.
The funds collected totalled to about 3,000 euros, which exceeded the wildest expectations of the organizers. All the money will be handed over to the Paediatric Clinic of Maribor.
