You can take a spin on the brand-new roundabout which has been officially named after our charity. We're very honoured and pleased to be such a part of the fabric of the daily lives of citizens of Warsaw.
2 600 000 Face Masks from our Charity
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity made the safety of healthcare staff its top priority. Medical staff put themselves at risk to save lives, and we are committed to providing doctors, nurses, paramedics, and other frontline medical workers with personal protection equipment. We decided to send the first parcels with face masks, face shields, disinfecting liquid, and soap to care homes which provide medical care to the most vulnerable patients, ob-gyn wards, and hospitals tasked with caring for COVID-19 patients.
The most significant part of the equipment consists of 1 600 000 three plier surgical masks. We are still awaiting the delivery of 2 000 000 face masks, but we decided to send the first batch of masks immediately.
The charity is committed to COVID-19 Relief Initiative. The GOCC has already purchased equipment for PLN 36 000 000 (EUR 7 900 000). Apart from face masks and face shields, the charity purchases PPE sets, coveralls and medical equipment for isolation wards such as ICU beds, medical ventilators, and cardiac monitors.
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation announced the medical objective of the 29th edition of the Grand Finale fundraiser. In 2021 we will be raising money for laryngology, otorhinolaryngology, head diagnostics!
