A car for a hospice in Częstochowa
The representatives of the Foundation - our board members, Jurek Owsiak and Lidia Niedźwiedzka-Owsiak met with the children, their parents the dedicated staff at the nursing home for children to officially donate a new car for the facility. The car will be used by the staff to transport their young patients. The worth of the vehicle amounts to 90 thousand PLN, and the funds have been raised through the 1% charitable tax donations in 2016.
In 2016 charitable tax fundraiser drive we have received 4. 160.235,07 PLN in donations. These funds allowed us to support hospices. We have purchased 29 cars for these facilities, which allow the staff to travel to see their young patients or transport necessary equipment to their homes. It is important to note that it is not the first time our Foundation has supported children's hospices in Poland. So far, we have purchased equipment for over 8.5 million PLN - both devices and cars used by these facilities. We believe that children's hospices and nursing home do vital work caring for seriously ill children, alleviating their suffering. What is more, staff at these facilities offers invaluable support to parents, and that's why the Foundation is commited to providing them with the best possible equipment to make their work easier!
The medical objective of the upcoming Grand Finale fundraiser, which will take place on Sunday, January 12th, 2020 will focus on raising money to ensure the highest standards of diagnostics and care in paediatric surgery and treatment. Our motto is Wind in Our Sails!
Jurek Owsiak and the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation appeal to the Australian Collection Centres to utilize their Grand Finale fundraising resources to support the efforts to help victims of bushfires in Australia.
