Collection Centre helps in Indonesia
Our Grand Finale Collection Centre from Bali played once again - this time in aid of their local community in Lombok, Indonesia. The volunteers asked our permission to use part of the money raised in their winter fundraising efforts to buy equipment for a local hospital. The activists, who have been working to make the collection a success, saw that their help is needed locally, and they did not hesitate. Even though their main objective was to support Polish medicine they could not be indifferent to the struggle of local, Indonesian health care. Local hospitals suffered in the aftermath of an earthquake.
The Collection Centre stated that its intention is to buy a modern ultrasonography machine for a hospital in the city of Lambok, which has been tragically affected by an earthquake.
Olga Tokarczuk donated the first official replica of the medal to the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity to be auctioned off in aid of the medical objective of the Grand Finale fundraiser 2020.
Our initiative travels the world! We are "playing" on all continents, wherever there is a vibrant, energetic Polish community abroad. We are very proud of our friends who decide to play with our Orchestra in the most remote corners of the world.
