Our charity not only supplies medical devices to hospitals in Ukraine but also provides medical devices to hospitals in Poland, in particular to locations which treat patients escaping the war in Ukraine. Przemyśl, which is the town on the border between Poland and Ukraine has been struggling with the influx of patients since the beginning of the war.
Children won the 'Great Game'!
The atmosphere in the stands was absolutely amazing because it happens very rarely that the fans cheer for both teams at the same time. It was great to see people in the seats (the stadium was filled to the brim) erupt in cheers, sing-songs and beaming with smiles when either of the teams scored a goal. We also know that there were thousands of people who have followed the game from their homes, watching the teams compete on TV and watched the rivalry online.
The GOCC team has fought valiantly, but, unfortunately, we have lost to the seasoned players from TVN team. The final score of the game was 4:3 in favour of TV personality squad. We have made it up in penalties, scoring more goals than our opponents. Everyone gave their best, but the only goal that really counted was raising 500. 000 PLN to purchase a modern ambulance for Children's Memorial Hospital.
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is committed to providing support to hospitals in Ukraine. First deliveries of humanitarian aid reached two towns in western parts of the country. We delivered devices to Rivne and Uzhorod.
We have been delighted to play Santa Claus to the sisters of St Dominic, who run a care home for orphaned disabled boys in Broniszewice. We donated a modern, fully insured van to the care home.
