It is customary for the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity to publish financial reports detailing the charity's medical purchases in the run-up to the Grand Finale fundraiser.
We always make sure to account for the funds raised at the annual public charitable collection. Our accounting period takes up to year and a half, so we can now publish the preliminary account of the purchases made during the 25th edition of Grand Finale.
During the 50th Open Tender, we have signed contracts to purchase almost 5 000 pieces of different equipment. Medical experts purchased equipment for paediatric and neonatal units as well as pull-down beds and recliners for parents, who stay by their children's side.
Time flies when you are doing good deeds! We have celebrated our 25th Grand Finale last year - and today we want to take this opportunity to look through the memories we made with you.
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation presents the financial report of the 24th Grand Finale charitable collection and preliminary financial report of the 25th charitable collection.
Equipment purchased during the 49th Open Tender will be donated to 224 different hospitals in Poland. This time we are buying devices for paediatric wards - you can check which children's hospitals will receive equipment purchased this week below.
medical equipment, what else! We commenced our shopping for equipment for geriatrics and paediatric wards. The Open Tender will take 2 days, as it involves equipment presentations, questions from the panel of experts and negotiations with the vendors.
Representatives from ten countries met in Brussels last weekend to discuss their experiences and share their knowledge and know-how about how it is to run and organise a Grand Finale fundraiser abroad!
This year our charitable Orchestra has played globally - taking our initiative to Japan, China, Georgia, all over Europe and fundraising for Polish medicine in the Americas. We decided to get together with the representatives of 10 international Collection Centres in Brussels over this weekend.
The Foundation has been supporting public medicine in Poland for 25 years, purchasing over 36 thousand pieces of equipment. The estimated worth of this equipment amounts to 720 000 000 PLN.
The Great Orchestra enjoys great success on the Internet! More than 20 million PLN donated online in 2017 set new record for online charity donations in Poland.
Thank you is the only word we have on our minds today - thank you for your boundless support, your positive energy and enthusiasm you so generously shared with us in this quarter of a century!
