New ambulance for a Kraków hospital
We have received a request for a new modern emergency vehicle from the staff at the Teaching Hospital in Kraków. Jurek Owsiak has announced the decision to purchase this piece of equipment, worth over 500. 000 PLN in Kraków as he has accepted a "Plus ratio quam vis" medal from the Jagiellonian University.
The ambulance we will be purchasing will be outfitted in all necessary pieces of equipment in order to ensure that the patients will be able to receive care en route to the hospital, which massively increases the chances of saving their life and health. We are very happy to be able to support the vital work of the staff at the hospital and purchase the ambulance they so desperately need to continue saving lives of young patients.
Our humble heart-shaped logo has travelled into space! We couldn't believe it either, but the Orchestra is not only playing all around the globe - we are even on the Earth's orbit now.
It's official! We have set a new record in most people taking part in a simultaneous CPR session. We celebrated Global Restart a Heart Day together with over a hundred thousand people!
