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.
You are on your way to work, rushing through a crowded train station, walking around a shopping centre when a kid approaches you as asks - 'would you like to learn first aid?' What would you do? Stop and learn, of course! In 2013 we decided to celebrate World First Aid Day and put our own spin on it. We decided to show the public how and easy and fun learning CPR can actually be. We set up little stalls in cities across Poland where we aimed to offer quick introductory lessons to CPR...but rather than have adults instructing we invited school children, who have been taught how to do CPR at schools participating in our educational programme. Adults were amazed at how professional and put together our youngest instructors proved to be! And after all, learning first aid can be a child's play, regardless of how old you actually are!
