Kuba got one point in Apgar scale - he weighed only 540 grammes, which is the same as half a packet of sugar! He could not breathe on his own, and he had to be aspirated until he began breathing independently at 6 months old. The equipment used to save little Kuba's life was all marked with the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity heart stickers.
Kuba required complex therapy and rehabilitation - he exercised his speech and his parents worked hard with therapists and teachers to improve his skills. Now he is the life of every game - playing with his friends and enjoying his free time!
Based on requests we have received from hospitals across the country we are going to be purchasing the equipment for 218 medical facilities in Poland. The funds raised at the 24th Grand Finale will allow us to purchase 2 514 pieces of medical equipment.
Today we are celebrating all of you - the beautiful, kind-hearted people, who have contributed their time and skills in order to volunteer! Thank you for your involvement, for 'playing' with us for sake of Polish public medicine, for making it all become reality.
