Pol’and’Rock Festival is a great summer Festival where our volunteers who work hard during the winter fundraising concerts can be rewarded for their hard work. Although this is a time to celebrate and fest this is also a place where one can learn lots of useful skills that complement our Foundation’s mission.
What is the aim of GOCC collection this year?
Cheerful smiles, lots of music and strong emotions. We have just started the 27th Grand Finale, you can see hundreds of our volunteers on the streets raising money. But do you know what is the aim of this years collection?
Helping is child's play! The aim of this year's Grand Finale is raising money to purchase state-of-the-art equipment for specialist children’s hospitals in Poland. The funds will go to the facilities which can make specialist diagnosis and provide medical help for most difficult cases.
In Poland we have almost 50 of such facilities, all around the country. In those facilities the highest standard of the equipment is of most importance, as it gives the medical staff the possibility of diagnosis and treatment of most severe cases.
We will focus mostly on specialized diagnostics facilities, and above all on imaging, radiology and laboratory. We would like to equip those facilities in:
- MRI equipment
- Computer tomography equipment
- RTG diagnostic equipment
- Endoscopy equipment with track vision for gastroenterology.
It’s a truly noble goal. As Jurek says himself, “We’re able to help keep high standards and possibilities in medical treatment. And this is what we will do, till the end of the world and one day longer.”
Today you can support our cause, traditionally by making a donation in the Collection Box. If you don’t have that possibility, you can support us online. Check how to do it!
