The Pomeranian Centre for Infectious Diseases and Tuberculosis in Gdańsk can already use two new devices purchased thanks to the action of the Polish clothing company – LPP. A compact patient monitor and defibrillator with the possibility of cardioversion were purchased with funds from the sale of the Eco Aware and Joyful collections by Cropp and Reserved brands.
Since the beginning of the epidemic, LPP has taken many initiatives aimed at fighting the coronavirus by providing in-kind and financial assistance to health care centres on the front line in the fight against the epidemic. One of them is the Pomeranian Centre for Infectious Diseases and Tuberculosis in Gdańsk, which for nearly four months has been in constant readiness to receive people with suspicion of an infection and actually infected with the coronavirus. Currently, the facility is the only hospital in the Tri-City dedicated to such patients.
– When, in mid-March, through social media, we called for support in the purchase of medical equipment and, above all, personal protective equipment, LPP was one of the first to respond very quickly to our request. Thanks to the recent donation of PLN 50,000 we were able to buy a patient monitor and a highly specialized defibrillator. This way, LPP joined the group of Friends of Pomeranian Hospitals, which will never forget their wonderful gesture – says Andrzej Zieleniewski, Vice-President of the Mangement Board of Szpitale Pomorskie [Pomeranian Hospitals].
Thanks to the support of LPP, with its Cropp and Reserved brands joining the efforts by allocating 10% of the proceeds from the sale of their products from the Eco Aware and Joyful collections, it was possible to purchase the necessary equipment not only for the Gdańsk facility. The University Centre of Marine and Tropical Medicine in Gdynia will also benefit from the pool of funds obtained as part of the same action. The facility will receive an external cardiac compressor with all the equipment necessary.
– By the end of May, Cropp and Reserved brands have donated over PLN 100,000 to help two Tri-City hospitals. This was possible thanks to the positive response of customers to our charity actions. We hope that the purchased equipment will help in treating patients at this extremely difficult time for everyone. We are glad that our clients are so willing to join this type of charity actions – comments Patrycja Zbytniewska, President of the LPP Foundation.
A special charity action of LPP brands also included the Eco Aware collection by Mohito, and 10% of the proceeds from its sale were allocated to the needs of hospitals in Kraków. The total amount of aid allocated to all institutions in Poland covered the programme has exceeded PLN 200,000.
