25 years of buying equipment...

2017-04-28 15:48:23

We have estimated that every day a hospital somewhere in Poland (maybe in a little town, maybe somewhere in a huge medical institute) receives 4 pieces of equipment purchased by the Foundation. The main focus of the Foundation's activity and support are paediatric wards, which we have been continuously supporting from the very beginning of our initiative 25 years ago. We have also decided to purchase equipment for a hugely neglected branch of medicine - geriatrics. We want to ensure that the most vulnerable patients - elderly people - receive medical care in a dignified environment. 

We have supported, among many others, the following branches of medicine:

  • Children's heart surgery
  • Children's traumatology
  • Children's oncology
  • Children nephrology
  • Children's laryngology 
  • Children's diagnostics 
  • Geriatrics and long-term-care medicine 

We are always concerned with the quality of equipment we purchase, so, in order to ensure we purchase the best devices for the best prices, we hold Open Tenders, where the manufacturers can present their wares. You can check what equipment we have bought so far here and you can see pictures of equipment we have donated here
