Just a few days ago media were on the look-out for a brave 12-year old who has helped a senior citizen in one of the parks in Warsaw. We now know that Maurycy is one of almost 3 million children who has been taught CPR and first aid during lessons which are a part of the Foundation's educational initiative. We are very proud that Maurycy has put his knowledge to good use and was able to help when it was most needed! CPR for Schools programme combines CPR knowledge with elements of first aid. Children, who take part in the free lessons are also taught how and whom to ask for help.

On September 27th Maurycy was riding his bike by Kabacki Woods, he noticed an elderly gentleman, who had, apparently, collapsed. Maurycy, who had a first aid kit at hand, put on disposable gloves and administered CPR. He called the ambulance and stayed with the victim until it arrived.

We found out that Maurycy is raising money during winter charitable drive, held by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation. He is also passionate about the work of emergency medical services and he dreams about becoming a paramedic and helping people.
