Because we care

Our "Love Heals" initiative was inspired by a viral testimony of a mother who described her stay in the hospital, where she accompanied her baby. The mother told how she tried to catch some shuteye sleeping in a sleeping bag, which she placed on the floor under her baby's hospital cot. Then, she used social media to vent. As her post went viral in 2017, there was an outpouring of similar tales: parents and guardians who accompanied their kids at hospital wards are unable to rest or relax. So our charity decided to act immediately - we established our "Love Heals" initiative and donated over 5 000 recliners and nursing chairs to hospitals nationwide. 

 

We are very well aware that parents and guardians not only offer invaluable help to medical personnel at hospitals, taking over the care of the child but also the contact with their loved ones, with family, reduces the stress the child feels during prolonged hospitalization and is beneficial in the overall healing process. We want to ensure that parents stay by their child's hospital bedside in dignified conditions. Therefore, we will continue the purchase of recliners and nursing chairs for hospitals that request them.

 

Since the initiative's start, we have donated 5 395 recliners and nursing chairs worth almost 10.9 PLN.
