The beginning of the new year is a great opportunity to look back at what we have achieved in 2018. What a busy, unforgettable year it has been, and we are grateful that so many of you were a part of it!
Beautiful day in Wellington (NZ) to collect funds!
With a weather like that, nothing could go wrong. The picnic was bound to be a success: there was entertainment for kids and the entire family - tug-of-war, obstacle races and cricket. Our team of cooks didn't let us down - everyone could have tried Polish delicacies. There was bigos, kielbasa and smalec. There was homemade lemonade - what a treat! You don't get to feast like that every day in New Zealand.
We have begun the biggest shopping for medical equipment in the history of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation. We intend to purchase 2818 pieces of equipment!
During the 50th Open Tender, we have signed contracts to purchase almost 5 000 pieces of different equipment. Medical experts purchased equipment for paediatric and neonatal units as well as pull-down beds and recliners for parents, who stay by their children's side.
