  • hospitalisation of volunteer citizens who are wounded on the front: thanks to the efforts of Synevo in Ukraine, people wounded in military action were offered specialist medical aid (e.g. surgery, orthopaedics) in the Medicover Hospital in Poland.
The campaign is actively supported by all employees of the Medicover Group.
