The GOCC wraps up the Humanitarian Point
The Humanitarian Aid Point was operating from November 8th until January 31st. For 85 days of its activity, the Humanitarian Aid Point provided support to volunteers and activists working to help refugees stranded in the forests of the Polish-Belarussian border zone. Volunteers received material aid: medical supplies, clothes, camping equipment and medical supplies, later delivered to people struggling to survive.
Overall, in the three months of the activity at the Humanitarian Point, the activists received over 17 000 food supplies, over 40 000 medical items, over 2 500 items of clothing, including shoes, and over 1 500 camping items.
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation has also donated 169 pieces of medical equipment to ambulance staff working on the border.
Moreover, our charity donated medical equipment to a hospital in Hajnówka, which received an influx of patients, who due to extended stay in the forest, dehydration, and fatigue, needed urgent medical help.
On 9 May in Poland, we celebrate the Ophthalmologists and Ophthalmology Day – a very special date for the GOCC Foundation. Since 2001 we have run the Prevention of Retinopathy of Prematurity Programme!
The GOCC Foundation has just completed the three-day-long 66th Open Tender held to buy medical equipment for the fight against sepsis. The Foundation spent a record-breaking amount of PLN 168 million!
