Twenty-five portable ultrasonography sets donated by Philips Polska arrived at the headquarters of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation. These devices will be sent to isolation hospitals, which treat COVID-19 patients.
We teach first aid in Lubuskie province!
This week first aid instructors will travel to Lubuskie province to meet with primary school teachers, who would like to introduce their little students to basics of CPR and first aid. With 38 schools from the region eager to participate in our CPR for Schools Programme, it will be an intensive training course!
So far, our first aid educational programme has been introduced to 91% of primary schools in Poland and millions of children have been taught what to do in an emergency! The programme not only provides free first aid course to teachers, who then pass on their knowledge to their pupils. The Foundation provides schools with teaching aids such as books and manikins completely free of charge!
A brand new roundabout in Gorzów Wielkopolski has been officially named after our charity. We are delighted, especially because the town is located in the vicinity of Kostrzyn nad Odrą, where we host our festival.
We raised PLN 17 234 732 (over EUR 3 800 000) through 1% tax donation. Polish revenue allows taxpayers to choose a non-governmental organisation which will receive a donation amounting to 1% of their tax.
