377 Medical Devices for Children's Surgery

2021-04-28 16:09:30

 

We bought medical devices for over PLN 40 000 000. After two days of negotiations, 377 medical devices for children's surgery wards will be donated to 65 hospitals in 51 towns in Poland. Our charity buys medical equipment after a thorough analysis of all features of all devices, negotiations with vendors and consultations with experts. Our 56th Open Tender focused on buying medical devices for children's surgery. We looked into some of the most modern equipment, which promotes non-invasive, safe procedures and diagnosis. 

 

Let the numbers speak for themselves. It took a team of 15 experts: leading doctors, surgeons, medical engineers to examine the wares presented by the representatives of 27 manufacturers. Negotiations proved to be extremely successful - out of PLN 50 000 000 set aside for these purchases, we spent PLN 40 681 573,64. 377 medical devices were bought with the funds we have raised at the Grand Finale fundraiser 2020. COVID-19 pandemic forced us to postpone all activities relating to the purchase of medical devices, except for our work to bring relief to hospitals and frontline medical staff fighting with the pandemic in Poland. 

 

Medical devices will be donated to 65 children's hospitals in 51 towns nationwide. We aim to ensure that access to great medical care and, consequently, great medical equipment is universal.
