Children's Hospital to receive €20 million donation from MikroTik's chair

The co-owner and chair of the information technology company MikroTik, John Tully, has promised to donate EUR 20 million to the Children's Clinical University Hospital, Health Minister Daniels Pavļuts said at a press briefing November 30.

More information about this sizeable donation will follow later, said the minister.

The minister said that these funds are intended to be channelled to the establishment of a Center for the Development of Health Care so that the hospital, together with scientists and researchers, can develop new care services.

“As a result, the Children's Clinical University Hospital will be able to form an organization that learns, teaches other members of the system, and directs innovation. I know the hospital accepts this donation with enormous responsibility,” Pavļuts said.

This year MikroTik became the first private equity company in Latvia whose value exceeded a billion euro, and is currently the top 3 of Latvian most valuable companies.

In January Tully was awarded Latvian citizenship for "special merit" in view of his business activities and previous acts of philanthropy.
