More than one million HUF have been raised from the online charity auction organized by the UP Centre for Internationalization and Connections in connection with the works of Wei Xiang's exhibition.
The exhibition of the Chinese artist opened at the Knowledge Center in the middle of March, right before the state of emergency. Wei Xiang was committed to his intention to help despite the epidemiological situation and individuals and various organizations from Asia, Europe and Hungary also successfully bid on the International Spring Facebook page.
The Clinical Center (CC) Department of Paediatrics will use the amount of support through the Sürgi Captain Foundation established to develop its emergency department.
“This is a great help for the emergency department of the Department of Paediatrics where one of our goals is to establish a triage system (patient classification system) in the near future. As part of the development, a so-called triage desk and its IT background will be implemented from the donation” - said dr. Gábor Horváth, resident doctor of the UP CC Department of Paediatrics, head of the Foundation.
“I am happy to do something for the relations between the two countries because I love China and Hungary as well. I would like the two peoples to get to know each other better. I would like to help with that” - said Wei Xiang.
