Our charity has been raising money to buy medical equipment for children's medicine for almost 30 years. We have raised over PLN 1.5 billion and donated over 65 200 medical devices. We also initiated and help run 8 medical initiatives and one educational programme.
Most people associate hospice care with help offered to the terminally ill and their families. What's more, most people associate hospices with death, but it is different in the case of children's hospices. Children's hospices make home care possible. The youngest patients receive medical care in their homes, surrounded by love and care of their families.
The influence it has on the comfort of the patients is huge, and that's why the Foundation decided to support children's hospices in Poland with equipment necessary as well as a fleet of cars which enables the doctors and staff from the hospices to travel to their patients' homes.
The Foundation has supported the hospices with the funds raised during the Grand Finale and money donated through 1% charitable tax donation.
In the four years of our work for the benefit of the children's hospices we have purchased a fleet of 69 cars and 1 027 devices, for the sum amounting to 8 412 686, 65 PLN.
