Preliminary financial report of the 26th Grand Finale
We have raised over 126 000 000 PLN in aid of neonatal units - our aim was to buy equipment for as many wards across the country so that all children born in Poland could have access to the best medical care regardless of where they were born. And with your generous support, we were able to buy equipment worth 93, 6 million PLN and we have set aside the remaining 32, 7 million PLN for the purchase of remaining equipment for neonatal wards.
We can now publish the preliminary financial reports of how we have allocated the funds we raised in January last year.

- closed incubators
- transport incubators
