For the past 25 years The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity have been raising funds to support public healthcare in Poland and buy state-of-the-art equipment for Polish hospitals and clinics. They held their first ever fundraiser back in January 1993, this was to be a one-off event to help raise money for the Cardiac Surgery Ward in the Children's Memorial Hospital in Warsaw. The event proved to be such a huge success and now 25 years later they are still doing a great effort in fundraising for the children in all the cardiology wards in Poland as well as creating the foundation of "The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity" or "GOCC".
This is a public benefit organisation registered under the Polish law with the aim to systematically transform medicine in the country and help to run five nationwide medical programs.
There are collection centres around the world and are held on the Grand Finale Day with the Polish community of WA organising an event at the Cracovia Club in Bennett Springs. The aim of this event is to raise funds that will go towards buying equipment such as modern incubators, resuscitation units for newborns and sophisticated diagnostic equipment like ultrasonography machines for level I of neonatal care in Poland.
