Solidarity with Ukraine

We stand with Ukraine

The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity has pledged to help Ukrainians in Ukraine and support the Polish healthcare system in the coming months. It is faced with growing demands from people who escaped the war and found a safe home in Poland. We are in touch with local hospitals and working on providing support in the area of our expertise - by purchasing medical equipment, medical supplies such as bandages and other single-use supplies. 

 

What does our charity do to help people escaping the war in Ukraine? 

We remain in touch with the largest NGOs engaged in carrying humanitarian aid to Ukrainians. We analyse the current needs and issues they raise. 

  • The GOCC Foundation have donated nearly PLN 23 mln to aid Ukraine. 
  • We have purchased i.a.: heart monitors, ventilators, anaesthetic machines, oxygen concentrators, pulse oximeters, USG, ECG, professional first aid kits. Moreover, we have delivered 371 wheelchairs.
  • We have supported 19 medical facilities in 15 different locations in Ukraine: Uzhhorod, Rivne, Ternopil, Lutsk, Chervonohrad, Novovolynsk, Kyiv, Odesa, Yavoriv, Khmelnytskyi, Lviv, Dnipro, Vinnytsia, Ivano-Frankivsk (delivery scheduled for 27 October 2022), and Kharkiv (an ambulance to be delivered soon).
