Each award and prize is important for us because we see it as a recognition of all the hard work we do. We also never see it as an accolade for the Foundation, but a praise of the involvement of hundreds of thousands of volunteers and activists involved in our initiative. Hearing that the European Parliament members noticed our efforts to improve the level of medical care in Polish paediatric hospitals made is feel especially proud.
