Medicover Foundation’s mission
The Medicover Foundation was established to fulfill a social mission, to change reality for the better and, above all, to convince children, young people and adults that by making the right choices on a daily basis, they can make a real impact on their physical and mental well-being. This mission is realised through many different activities which are mainly focused on aspects of social life such as voluntary work, education and lifestyle.
Supporters and employees of the Foundation believe in the power of preventive healthcare, which can protect each of us against the consequences of bad habits. Every day we make choices which have a direct or indirect influence on us and our loved ones. A bad diet, stress, long hours spent at work, smoking, alcohol, lack of sleep - these are just a few of the many negative factors which consistently damage our health.
The idea of voluntary work is put into practice through diverse local initiatives, proposed and implemented by employees and co-workers of the Medicover Group. The Foundation is an organization which has the necessary infrastructure, knowledge and experience but to make our activities really matter and influence others, it is essential to have committed people who are willing to help. There are many such volunteers within the Medicover Group. It is their great hearts and skills which make it possible to pursue the Foundation’s mission. We all strongly believe that together we can do more and that this is the power behind helping others.
Medicover Foundation’s involvement in education is implemented, among other efforts, through “medMagazyn”. It is published periodically and is available free of charge at Medicover Centres all over Poland as well as online at www.medicover.pl. The magazine is addressed mostly to members and customers of Medicover Centres. It offers a variety of useful information on health, preventive healthcare and promotion of a safe lifestyle.
Educational activities of the Medicover Foundation also include providing appropriate medical equipment to educational institutions, which are aimed at protecting children and young people against the effects of bad habits. The purpose of the Foundation is to safeguard children through education and fun as well as to create a safe environment
Good lifestyle is the key to health
The Medicover Foundation is also active in the field of promoting a healthy lifestyle, encouraging both small and larger changes that will allow people to enjoy good health for many years. The main aim of all the activities in this area is to improve the state of health of each and every one of us. This is achieved by persuading people that every day we can influence our well-being and that each habit and decision can have important, sometimes negative consequences for our health. Therefore, the Medicover Foundation teaches that it is worthwhile fostering good habits from a young age to promote a long and healthy life.
