The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity donated two brand new, fully equipped ambulances for two public hospitals in Poland - Szczecin (northern Poland) and Ustrzyki Dolne (southern Poland) received emergency vehicles each worth almost PLN 1 000 000.
We bought an ambulance for Szczecin hospital. It's a specialised neonatal ambulance, and it means that it is equipped in a transport incubator and other essential devices, making it a small mobile hospital. This vehicle and equipment are worth around PLN 1 000 000.

Last year's game was such a great sporting adventure for all involved, but it also brought about this fantastic, fully-equipped specialised ambulance for the Ustrzyki Dolne hospital. We are very happy that the main prize of the game - this ambulance - will serve patients from Ustrzyki Dolne.
