The lion's share of online collections started already on the first of December, giving our donors the opportunity to take part in the 30th Finale of the Great Orchestra, two whole months before the last Sunday of January.
Girl, aged 10, saves newborn baby brother!
Last week a primary school pupil not only became a big sister - she became a superhero! When the girl's mum went into premature labour, she knew exactly what she needed to do. The little hero knew whom to call for help and was able to provide emergency dispatchers with all details. When her brother was born, she knew how to act and how to provide support to both - her mum and her newborn sibling.
The little girl's composure is described as nothing short of heroic by medical staff and police officers. The girl not only called for help - she also made sure that her newborn brother was breathing. All this before the ambulance arrived at the scene! Her actions are the best proof that teaching basics of first aid at very early age brings fantastic effects!
At the moment, both the new mum and baby are healthy and heir condition is monitored by doctors, who do not hide their admiration for the little girl's behaviour in a critical situation.
Our educational initiative aimed to bring universal and free first aid training to all primary school children in Poland. To date, we have reached nearly all primary schools in the country, making sure that kids know exactly what to do when it comes to helping save lives.
October first marks International Healthcare Workers Day. We wanted to take this opportunity to reiterate how grateful we are for all the work and commitment it takes to pursue a career that focuses on saving lives and helping people get better.
