The hospital, which is one of the most modern and comprehensive paediatric units in the country and ever since it has been opened in 2015, our Foundation has been purchasing devices to equip its many specialist wards. 

Apart from treating the youngest patients from across the country, the staff working there have the major influence on the shape of children's medicine in Poland - that's why we aim to make sure that doctors and nurses have access to the most modern pieces of equipment. So far, we have furnished the wards of this University Clinic with equipment worth over 18 million PLN. 

Today, Jurek and Lidia Owsiak - chairman of the board of the Foundation, and medical director, respectively - have visited the hospital to personally donate 35 infusion pumps worth over 300 thousand PLN. Having toured the wards of the hospital, we were impressed by the amount of work and thought that went into arranging the space because the hospital is a colourful, kid-friendly place. We discussed the ongoing needs of the staff and planned some additional purchases to support their work. 

The representatives of our charity took part in the official launch of Genetics Lab. The laboratory is furnished with hi-tech equipment donated by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation and will allow doctors to diagnose their patients precisely and monitor their recovery each step of the way. The equipment donated to the lab was worth over 1.6 million PLN. The board of the Foundation has decided to invest in additional equipment for the lab - making the donations worth overall 2 million PLN. We know that the equipment will make the diagnosis more accurate and will help treat more children successfully.
