The members of the Board of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation received European Citizen's Prize in the European Parliament. We have been honoured to receive the award alongside three other Polish NGOs: Polish-Jewish Forum and Alicja Szatkowska.
Ambulance for Memorial Children's Hospital
Do you remember the exciting charitable football game we have played against the team representing TVN station? The proceeds from the sale of the tickets for the game as well as money raised via text messages during the game were used to buy a modern emergency vehicle for the Warsaw hospital.
The ambulance is the most modern vehicle owned by the hospital - it is equipped to ensure that the patients arrive at the hospital quickly and can receive all necessary treatment on board of the ambulance. The emergency vehicle can also be used to drive the smallest patients, providing safe transport for babies weighing less than one kilo. The ambulance can also be used to drive incubators.
Jurek Owsiak, the chairman and the creator of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation, picked up the European Citizen's Prize on behalf of the entire Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation.
Because helping is child's play. Next year our charitable collection will be held in aid of specialist children's hospitals. Are you ready to play with us?
