This coming Sunday both in Poland and all over the world, our volunteers will be fundraising in aid of our charity. How to recognize the volunteers helping out hold 30th Grand Finale?
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 has wrapped up the operation at the Humanitarian Aid Point in Michałowo, located in the vicinity of the border between Poland and Belarus.
The 30th Final of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity started with the amount of 41 538 333 PLN! What does this amount consist of and what will the donations from this year's Finale be used for?
