Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted not only everyone's daily lives but also the functioning of aid institutions – hospitals and foundations. The desire to help and support organisations on the front line of the fight against the pandemic resulted in the launch of a special grant program "Nets COVID-19 Relief Fund" of the Nets Group, of which Przelewy24 is part.This pan-European initiative aims to support the activities of independent institutions and to reduce the impact of the pandemic in the medical sector and non-profit organisations. The project is special because, from the very beginning, it involves employees from the entire group, including Przelewy24. The employees have chosen nine unique initiatives from across Europe to receive a donation. Two of them are from Poland and will receive total support of 50,000 euros. Half of this amount will go to the Haematology Clinic of the Medical University of Lodz, which specialises in bone marrow transplantation and treatment of haematopoietic diseases. The other half of the sum will go to the Adoptive Families Foundation, which gives the youngest children a chance for faster adoption and runs a hospital pre-adoption ward for abandoned babies.
Fighting the effects of the pandemic requires extraordinary measures and global solidarity. At Przelewy24, we know how important it is to help those who need it the most. I believe that the donation will improve the situation of people in need – says Jacek Kinecki, the CCO of Przelewy24.
The exceptional situation of the recent months and the introduced restrictions have significantly affected the entire Polish healthcare system, hindering its activity. Thanks to the Nets COVID-19 Relief Fund and Przelewy24, we will increase the range of services for abandoned newborns with medical conditions. The donated funds will enable them to receive appropriate diagnostics and therapy, which will improve their chances for adoption. This kind of support is invaluable for our small patients and us. We are very grateful for that help – comments Jerzy Potocki, the Chairman of the Board of the Adoptive Families Foundation.
