In addition to the numerous grant programmes, the BGK Foundation engaged in many initiatives as part of partnership projects and donations. 81 projects received co-financing in the total amount of nearly PLN 7 million. Thanks to them, the Foundation reached approximately 850,000 recipients.
The 2021 was another year in which there was an epidemiological threat related to the spread of COVID-19. The Foundation allocated a portion of its funds to support medical units. Funds were transferred to the Mazovian Provincial Hospital in Siedlce for the purchase of an ambulance, the Silesian Heart Disease Centre of Zabrze for specialised medical equipment, and the Institute of Mother and Child of Warsaw for decontamination equipment. Other activities in the area of supporting the protection and promotion of health include financing the purchase of a vehicle for medical diagnostics for seniors under the “MediBus Senior” project, costs of treatment, purchase of medicines, costs of rehabilitation of persons of Polish origin from Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine, and purchase of meals for medical personnel. However, the most important activity in this pillar was the initiation of an information and education campaign on paediatric transplantation.
Once again, the BGK Foundation was also involved in the activities of the Growing Up Together Foundation and has joined the Together for Heroes Coalition, a programme supporting children whose parents were killed or seriously injured in the line of duty.
