Other projects

Last year’s Medicover Foundation operations continued the programmes and projects of the previous year, and began the implementation of new projects with the aim of promoting physical activity and a healthy lifestyle, as well as helping individuals and communities in need.

The sounds of dreams

Aim: In 2014, the Medicover Foundation, together with the Orange Foundation, supported the nationwide rehabilitation programme for young children with hearing defects entitled “The Sounds of Dreams”. Its aim was to ensure that hearing-impaired children are offered early speech and hearing therapy, and to increase their language skills to allow them to function properly. The programme includes 18 Hearing Aid Banks, where parents can borrow the first hearing aids for their children free-of-charge. The youngest of the patients also participate in professional rehabilitation carried out by specialists at the children’s homes and during summer holidays. In 2014, children participating in the rehabilitation holidays organised by the Orange Foundation in Serock, near Warsaw, received care provided by Medicover paediatricians. The participants were examined by the doctors after their arrival for the holidays – and then right before they returned home. In addition, during the stay, the children had access to need-specific consultations. The Medicover doctors provided medical care for 90 children during all three rehabilitation holidays.

Beneficiaries: Hearing-impaired children.

 

"Happiness helps healing"

Aim: Since 2013 the Medicover Foundation has collaborated with the Hungarian Smiling Hospital Foundation which focuses on activities in children’s wards. Volunteers organise games and art classes for children in order to make their hospital stay more enjoyable. On 29 May 2014 the Medicover Hospital in Warsaw hosted workshops for volunteers, where the participants of the Smiling Hospital Foundation talked about their experience and achievements in Hungary. Thanks to this partnership, similar activities will be organised in more Polish hospitals. The event was also attended by artists interested in volunteer work.

Beneficiaries:Children staying in hospital wards.

 

Support for foster care

Aim: On 27 September 2014, the Medicover and Oriflame Foundations organised first aid training for parents of foster children. As part of its mission to aid children in need, the Oriflame Foundation, which began in 1999, focuses on supporting foster family care and promoting the rights of children in foster families. This first aid course was the first joint effort mounted by the two Foundations.

Beneficiaries: Foster families.
