Equipment for Mountain Search & Rescue

2018-10-17 12:05:32

We have been joined by representatives of all Polish Volunteer Mountain Rescue Teams (GOPR) who received equipment from the hands of the chairman of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity, Jurek Owsiak. Our Foundation supports the work of volunteers, who came to Warsaw to pick up 72 pieces of equipment. This time, we have donated "rescue backpacks" and professional paramedic bags, which are worth over 500 000 PLN

Volunteer rescuers joined us to witness our attempt to set a new record of the biggest simultaneous CPR session which took place to celebrate European Restart a Heart Day. We hope that our initiative, which attracted over 100 thousand participants nationwide will help raise awareness of how important it is to learn CPR and first aid.
