The cornerstone of our work is the effective coordination and constant communication between all our humanitarian aid points and the headquarters in Warsaw.
We purchased 95 devices to support the respiratory system of newborns
Research shows that prematurely born babies struggle to breathe, so non-invasive methods of support, which are safe to use on vulnerable babies, are vital in providing care and treatment. Therefore, for nearly 20 year we have been running the Neonatal Non-invasive Respiratory Support Programme. Today we have purchased another batch of equipment to support the initiative. The total cost of the devices sums up to PLN 9,398.961.25.
The 64th Open Tender was a success! It took us just one day to buy 95 devices for 58 facilities in 52 cities. We could count on the support of the experts' committee, i.e. a committee of practising doctors from different parts of Poland.
Today’s purchase was made possible thanks to the funds raised during the 29th Grand Finale. The result of the fundraiser held in 2021 was equal to PLN 210,813,830.10.
We bought 95 devices:
Non-invasive respiratory support device for newborns, nCPAP - 34 units (DUTCHMED)
Mobile incubator with ventilator – 10 units (DUTCHMED)
Ventilator for newborns, infants, and children (with HFO) – 26 units (DUTCHMED)
High-flow respiratory therapy device – 25 units (FISHER & PAYKEL)

We continue to support Ukrainians fleeing the war and one of the ways in which we help refugees in Poland is by equipping Polish hospitals, which admit and treat patients from Ukraine. Our charity bought and donated equipment for 15 towns in the country.
Thank you to all the volunteers and each individual for playing along with us for children's ophthalmology, which is the target of this year's collection. As always, we ask you - take care of yourself. Your safety is the most important thing for us!
