In the light of the recent events, the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation made a decision to expand the programme providing rehabilitation equipment for disabled people. The charity will increase the sum and scope of its activity in the area of personal help.
The main area of the Foundation's activity is medicine and saving lives of the youngest of patients as well as improving the conditions in geriatric wards across the county. However, in July of 2010 we have held a day-long public fundraiser in aid of voluntary fire departments in Poland. In 2010 the southern part of the country has been seriously affected by tragic floods, and we intended to purchase equipment which would help those on the first line of defence against the destructive force of nature.
At this one-of-kind summer Finale we have managed to raise 2.644.507,34 PLN and these funds were used to purchase equipment for voluntary fire departments. We decided to equip these units in devices which are necessary to combat the effects of flooding.
