The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is committed to providing support to hospitals in Ukraine. First deliveries of humanitarian aid reached two towns in western parts of the country. We delivered devices to Rivne and Uzhorod.
Ambulance for Białystok children's hospital
Our goal is to change the conditions at public hospitals in Poland and we celebrate each opportunity that allows us to support the hardworking medical staff. When thinking about a hospital, we often imagine wards, operation theatres, beds, doctors, nurses, and specialist devices while we forget about an essential element ensuring smooth work of the hospital - modern and fully equipped ambulance. We were able to donate 32 modern emergency vehicles to different children's hospitals in the country.
The ambulance donated to Białystok facility is the first major item bought by the charity in 2019. Białystok hospital is the biggest medical facility in the region, offering specialist treatment to children and youngsters, treating 20 000 patients a year. The ambulance, donated by the charity will be the first emergency vehicle owned by the hospital - patients used to be transported by private contractors.
The ambulance, which is fully equipped and covered by car insurance for the entire year, is worth over 500 000 PLN, but it's really a small price to pay for the fact that children, even in very serious condition, can be brought to the hospital to receive help.
The main objective of our January fundraiser will be revealed soon. We will learn about the theme of the 31st Grand Finale on 12 October 2022, at 12:00!
The digital PET-CT scanner is a device which allows highly accurate and detailed imaging of tumour foci in children bodies. This equipment purchased by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation for nearly PLN 16 mln is the most expensive machine in the history of the GOCC.
