The GOCC Foundation has just completed the three-day-long 66th Open Tender held to buy medical equipment for the fight against sepsis. The Foundation spent a record-breaking amount of PLN 168 million!
Imagine that you are on your way to work, rushing through a crowded train station, or walking around a shopping centre, when a kid approaches you and 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 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 on CPR. But rather than have adults teaching adults, we invited school children, who have been taught how to do CPR at schools participating in our educational programme, to be the instructors. 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!
