The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity has oficially summed up its activities and support of Polish healthcare which aimed to address coronavirus pandemic in Poland. Our charity has donated medical equipment for PLN 48 000 000.
1% Charitable Tax Donation
Every individual taxpayer can choose a non-governmental organization or public benefit organization that will receive 1% of their tax return. Donations are easy, hassle-free, and provide tangible support to various charitable organizations across the country. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation is also eligible for the donation. This year, we will raise money to provide children's hospitals in the entire country with state of the art equipment and overhaul the devices we donated in the past. The deadline for submitting your tax returns in Poland falls at the end of April, so it's high time to make your decision!
These 1% of tax donations provide sizeable support to our charity. The money we raise will address some of the most serious needs of Polish public medicine. Last year we helped psychiatric wards for children and young adults. Thanks to the money raised in the 1% charitable drive, we sent equipment and furniture to 37 psychiatric wards across the country. We overhauled and transformed how these wards operate on a day-to-day basis. We are still a long way to go before the level of care and conditions in these wards. Still, we have made the first, essential steps on the road to recovery when it comes to access to psychiatric facilities and mental healthcare providers and the conditions at these hospitals, says the Medical Affairs Director of the GOCC, Lidia Niedźwiedzka-Owsiak
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity organized a huge delivery of personal protection equipment, disinfectant and soap to healthcare facilities and care homes across Poland.
The upper house of the Polish parliament will host a debate on children's mental health services on October 21st. Our charity will join forces with the Senate to find the solution to the problems which plight children's psychiatric care in Poland
