The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation was able to secure the purchase of 37 ventilators for hospitals treating COVID-19 patients in Poland. The equipment was purchased for almost PLN 2 500 000 (EUR 540 000).
Currently, it is next to impossible to find ventilators for sale! We are not a state agency; we are just a charitable organization, a non-governmental entity. We managed to negotiate the purchase of 37 medical ventilators. They will be delivered to Polish hospitals as the end of May, beginning of June at the latest. We know that hospitals will have to wait for the equipment, but we receive so many desperate pleas from doctors, so we decided to order the equipment anyway.
