2020-04-08 11:47:20

 

Our charity is currently fully committed to the purchase of medical equipment used to combat the coronavirus pandemic in Poland. We established a COVID-19 Relief Fund which allows us to purchase items such as PPE for medical staff, beds for intensive care units, face masks, and ventilators.  

On Tuesday, April 7th, we managed to secure an order of 50 additional beds for ICUs at isolation hospitals. This purchase rounds up the number of beds we bought to 200 units. These beds are currently en route to hospitals - first 50 beds should be delivered any day now. Another essential purchase we made on April 7th are ten medical ventilators. Ventilators are crucial when treating the most severe cases of coronavirus. Overall, as of April 7th, we ordered 47 medical ventilators for Polish hospitals, and we are currently awaiting delivery of these devices.
