New medical programme launched!

2017-05-10 16:12:16

Today we have launched our new medical initiative. This time, we decided to make sure that children, who suffer from serious bone defects and require bone extension procedures and other complicated limb bone surgeries can be treated in clinics and hospitals in Poland.

Thanks to the commitment of dedicated medical staff and with the help of equipment purchased by the Foundation, the children will be able to undergo surgeries and rehabilitation in Poland. Until now, children and their families chose to travel abroad for treatment, but thanks to the purchase of specialised surgical equipment, they will be able to stay in their home country. 

The funds have been raised through our charitable tax donation initiative in 2016. 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 in order to support Polish medicine and to make sure that children can be treated in Poland.
