This year we are playing to ensure the highest standards of sight diagnostics and treatment in children. Although it is the first time that the January collection is dedicated to this issue, these are not the first actions undertaken by the WOŚP Foundation in support of sight treatment and diagnostics.
We Plan to Buy Equipment for Children's Surgical Wards
We intend to hold another 56th edition of our Open Tender this April. Due to the restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we had to put a hold on the process of purchase of medical equipment, but we want to come back to the spending money we raised last year. Grand Finale 2020 was held to improve conditions at children's surgical wards, so we are eager to pick up where we left off last year - buying sophisticated medical equipment used by surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses while performing operations.
We aim to purchase:
- 43 colour doppler ultrasound machines
- 67 electrosurgical energy platforms
- 35 video surgery sets
- 61 laparoscopy sets (without vision columns)
- 17 intraoperative neuromonitoring apparatus
- 5 apparatus for electronic manometry of the digestive tract
- 6 apparatus for electronic manometry of the urinary tract
- 55 skin graft meshers
- 89 orthopaedic screwdrivers
Open Tenders allow us to buy only the best medical devices at the best prices. We can negotiate the prices, warranty periods, and training for medical personnel who receive comprehensive instructions on using the new equipment. However, what is more, important than the pricing is the fact that the team of our experts and engineers can inspect devices up close and personal and grill the vendors on the benefits and drawbacks of each device we buy. Our shopping process is always governed by the quality of equipment we invest in and the cutting edge technology we can introduce to public hospitals nationwide.
Although one of the most spectacular moments of each Finale of the GOCC - the run of several thousand participants through the streets of Warsaw – is still few hours away, the 16th "Get Even with Diabetes" run is already underway, thanks to the virtual form, which was launched on Monday, 24th January.
Salam Lab, an organization working within the network of Grupa Granica will be taking over the Humanitarian Aid Point established by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity in Michałowo, located in the vicinity of the border between Poland and Belarus.
