The merry tunes of the Great Orchestra reach the world's ends! Our melody of solidarity and friendship will once again play across the globe thanks to our amazing volunteers. What are the colours of the wind coming from both the poles?
Opening of the GOCC Square in Poznań
As of 4 October 2022, the square at ul. Wrzoska in Poznań is named after the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity! Thank you. It is an honour. The Mayor of Poznań, Jacek Jaśkowiak and the Chairman of the City Council, Grzegorz Ganowicz took part in the grand opening event.
During the 30th Grand Finale, the Collection Centres in Poznań raised as much as PLN 1,859,283.08. We wholeheartedly thank all the 2144 volunteers from Poznań!
Thanks to the funds raised in all the past Grand Finales, we purchased 13,571 pieces of medical equipment for hospitals in Poznań for as much as PLN 53,853,233.81.
For Poznań, we purchased, i.a.:
- transport incubator
- USG device
- Atom incubator with Fabian ventilator
- Mobile stand for non-invasive newborns respiratory support
- Ophthalmology IRIS Medical diode laser with a carry case
- Breathing support mechanism
Honouring the GOCC stands also for the gratitude for the 30-year-long tradition of activism and carrying help by the Foundation and all the volunteers acting in its ranks. The localization of the Square, in the direct neighbourhood of the new Greater Poland Children's Health Centre at ul. Adama Wrzoska, perfectly matches the profile of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity.
We have purchased PLN 3,828,827.81 worth of 1,443 medical devices for the Greater Poland Children's Health Hospital.
Today, 7 April, we celebrate the World Health Day! A matter of top priority to our GOCC Foundation. For over 30 years, we have been acting to support the public healthcare system - we purchase medical equipment for hospitals and run nationwide medical programmes. And we strongly encourage you to look after your health every day!
We are celebrating the 30th anniversary of registering our Foundation. Can you believe it? The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation was registered exactly on 2 March 1993.
