Children from Belgrade international schools visited the Royal Palace during the last two days as part of the “Children Helping Children” charity campaign traditionally organized by Crown Princess Katherine Foundation for the forthcoming holidays and Easter holidays.

The students from the International School of Belgrade, the British International School, the German International School, the Brook Hill School and the International Nursery School had the opportunity to listen to the professional tour guide who told them interesting facts about the history of the Palace and the works of art that adorn it, as part of the Royal Compound tour. The students had a chance to share the spirit of charity by donating gifts to their peers from Serbian orphanages. The idea is that the children learn about charitable activities and how to help their peers from homes for children without parental care, children with disabilities and Roma children.

The gifts that the students generously donated to their friends will be presented at the traditional Easter receptions that Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine organize at the White Palace on Tuesday, April 7, 2015.

Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine greeted the children and talked to them about the importance of giving, emphasizing that they are proud of them, because even being so young, they have awareness and compassion to help their peers and make their holidays great with many different types of toys, stressing that this compassion is a prerequisite to become good people when they grow up.
