Festival season has started! It’s a time of fun, music and celebrating friendship. It will stay in our memories for a long time. Please remember though to remain safe while enjoying yourself with your friends and take care of each member of your group.
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.
We delivered to neonatal wards:
- closed incubators
- transport incubators
- phototherapy lamps
- cardiotocography machines
- cardiac monitors
- pulse oximeters
- heating mattresses for newborns
- infusion and volume pumps
- portable RTG machines
- electronic scales
- and many other devices
All in all, there were 4 000 modern pieces of equipment donated to the Polish public hospitals.
We are also able to continue to finance our medical and educational programmes. We were also able to finance the purchase of rehabilitation equipment, allocating 2,4 million PLN.
It is important to note that the Foundation does not cover the costs of running its offices or does not finance Pol'and'Rock Festival organization.
The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation buys equipment by means of an open tender procedure in order to negotiate the best prices and service period for the medical devices. This time we buy equipment for paediatric units and beds and recliners for parents.
We are launching a new training session at Szadowo-Młyn training centre. Our 3-day course is a great combination of team-building, first aid and survival exercises and tasks, which prepare future volunteers for their work at the Pol'and'Rock Festival and other activities of our charity.
