Young hero from Sulęcin
Joasia is a primary school pupil and one of the children who learn CPR and first aid within the framework of the educational programme run by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation. Children learn not only how to administer basic help, but also how to behave and whom to call for help, so when the fire broke out in her home, little Joasia knew exactly what to do - she notified the rescue services. The resolute girl quickly left home and waited for the firefighters outside.
Unlike many adults, who would be flustered by the incident, Joasia kept her cool and knew how to call for help and how to report the incident. Little girl's bravery and speed of reaction are the best proof of the fact that children can learn how to behave in the stressful situation and they know how to utilise this knowledge to save lives. These children will grow up to be responsible members of society.
The little hero received high praise from firefighters and rescue dispatchers, who were really impressed with her focus, speed of reaction, and levelheadedness.
With Grand Finale looming on the horizon (not long to go before we celebrate the biggest fundraising drive in the country!), some Collection Centres are already holding fundraising events and Collection Boxes are displayed on business premises and shops.
It's Saturday evening, and we still have hours to go before the Grand Finale fundraiser... and we already raised PLN 11 850 688! It's PLN 1 700 000 more than last year. We are beginning like we mean to go on.
