The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity has been awarded during Effie Poland Gala. We received two beautiful statuettes - one for our cooperation with partners and second for 26th Grand Finale fundraiser, which has set a new record - 126 000 000 PLN raised in aid of medicine!
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.
We are launching a new training session at Szadowo-Młyn training centre. Our 3-day course is a great combination of team-building, first aid and survival exercises and tasks, which prepare future volunteers for their work at the Pol'and'Rock Festival and other activities of our charity.
As the biggest charitable initiative in Poland draws near a lot of you will be wondering how to play your part in the Grand Finale fundraiser. Read on to find out how to establish a Collection Centre and hold your local fundraiser in aid of our common goal!
