Jurek Owsiak travelled to Kołobrzeg to unveil two new location commemorating of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation - one a brand new roundabout and the second one - a whimsical statue of a seagull representing a volunteer.
Two Locations in Kołobrzeg Named After our Charity
Jurek Owsiak joined the president of the city of Kołobrzeg Anna Miecznikowska to symbolically unveil the official name of the new roundabout located in the vicinity of the seaside boardwalk. The city council of the spa town decided to name one of its roundabouts after our Charity in 2019, but the official unveiling of the name took place this week.
Another spot in the beautiful seaside town which serves to commemorate one of our everyday heroes - volunteers who commit their time and efforts in aid of our winter fundraising initiative. One of the symbols of the seaside town is a curious seagull, Marian, who takes up different guises. This time the statue depicts the seagull with the most important attribute of our volunteer - our Collection Box. The statue is located in the city centre and will surely become one of the focal points of the town!
Hospitals in Poland are struggling with equipment shortages as the cases of coronavirus patients are on the rise. The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity took up emergency action to address some of the most desperate needs of public healthcare in the country.
Between 2013 and 2017 he Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation donated equipment for over PLN 99 000 000 in aid of one of the most neglected and underfunded branches of medicine - geriatrics. Today, as we celebrate the International Day of Older Persons we look back on the ways in which we supported the elderly patients.
