The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is committed to helping hospitals tasked with caring for patients infected with coronavirus in Poland. We secured the purchase of an additional 10 ventilators and 50 ICU beds for public hospitals.
8 000 Parcels En Route to Collection Centres
We have moved the date of the Grand Finale to 31.01.2021, but the preparations to hold 29th edition of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity fundraiser are going strong. The key elements of the Grand Finale fundraiser are the community hubs of activity - our local Collection Centres, which hold different fundraising events and coordinate the work of our volunteers. It is our custom to provide volunteers with posters, gadgets, ID cards, and Collection Boxes to locations across the world.
Thanks to our friends at UPS, we have been able to deliver parcels to locations as remote as New Zealand or Mexico. This year, just like every year since we began working together 12 years ago, we could count on UPS volunteers, who helped us send over 8 000 parcels to Collection Centres worldwide. We have sent off our cardboard Collection Boxes, Grand Finale promotional posters and - in order to help Collection Centres hold safe events in the age of coronavirus pandemics - a supply of disinfectant and face masks for volunteers.
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is making additional purchases for Polish hospitals. Amid COVID-19 pandemic, we are donating personal protective equipment - masks and face shields for medical staff nationwide.
Our charity aims to improve the conditions at psychiatric wards for children and adolescents not only by purchasing medical equipment and hospital furniture, but also by engaging in meaningful discussions with the professionals in the field to seek long-term solutions.
