On Sunday, the 27th final of the Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy. Once again, the Orchestra will collect money for modern medical equipment for specialist children’s hospitals. The slogan of this year’s final is “Helping children is a child’s play”.
The schedule of the 27th Finale of the Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy in Łódź:
The Polish Mother’s Memorial Hospital – Research Institute since the beginning of the WOŚP’s activity has been generously donated. In every pediatric clinic we can easily find fantastic medical devices with a characteristic red heart – the symbol of the WOŚP. The equipment we have received over the years is worth several million zlotys.
In 2018, the PMMH-RI was once again lavishly supported by the WOŚP. We were donated an equipment worth of 2 million PLN.
The most expensive gift is worth nearly 900,000 The ultrasound machine that reached the Department of Cardiology is used for specialized heart examinations of children with the most serious defects.
Another very important donation was brought in several trucks to the Polish Mother’s. There were 170 specialist pediatric beds and couches for parents accompanying the youngest patients. This is an extremely valuable gift, because new furniture has replaced the beds that had been used since the hospital’s opening in the 1980s.

Recently, the Department of Neonatology has received 30 specialist kangaroo chairs.
