Orthopaedic surgery

We will help treat children with bone defects in Poland!

Devices for orthopaedic surgery

 

We launched this new medical programme in May 2017. Thanks to the funds raised through our charitable tax donation drive, we have been able to buy specialistic equipment to stabilise and fix bone defects in children. We have purchased equipment for PLN 4,7 million. We donated 51 devices. 

 

Talented and dedicated doctors use specialised external fixators to treat children who require operations and procedures to extend or stabilise their limb bones. Until now, children more often than had to undergo operations (sometimes a series of surgeries) and a lengthy rehabilitation process abroad. Once the child has been fitted with external fixators, the doctors need to adjust the device to maintain the proper growth of the limb. 

 

 

The funds have been raised through our charitable tax donation initiative in 2016. As a result, we have purchased state-of-the-art fixators, which allow doctors to stabilise, strengthen, and extend the bones after surgery and other vital equipment for orthopaedic clinics in Otwock and Poznań. Having analysed the needs of hospitals, the Foundation's board has decided to launch a comprehensive programme of equipment purchases to support Polish medicine and make sure that children can be treated in Poland. 

The Foundation does not treat little patients - the programme is, just like other initiatives financed by our charity, focused on purchasing the equipment necessary to help doctors do their jobs. We cannot influence the decisions of medical professionals and alter the treatment course they establish.

To the world's ends and beyond!

The Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences jumped on board with the 32nd Grand Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity by tossing into the mix the chance to sling your name into the cosmos – well, sort of. They offered up the opportunity to win an engraving on the shell of a photometer set to kick it 1.5 million kilometres from our little blue marble. The winner of the auction was Paweł Orepuk, bidding PLN 10,099.
