Main aim of the charity
The DHL Foundation implements national and local programs in the field of social and charitable aid for children and youth, health care and volunteer work, road safety, as well as environmental education and environmental protection. The Foundation carries out its own individual programs as well as cooperates with Polish and international social institutions.
How the employee got involved and why
The action started in April 2020. In May we delivered 770 masks we sewn to the Oncological Hospital in Warsaw. Nurses from this hospital were waiting for the masks and as soon as they got them - the masks started to be used immediately. Lack of masks in hospitals seemed to be something unbelievable, but unfortunately such situations happened. That is why we decided to act and activate our sewing skills to help.
What work does the employee do for charity?
When the pandemic started, information about problems with access to masks was coming from everywhere. The horrifying thing was that the masks were missing even in hospitals. Even masks made of textile, into which a filter could be inserted, were needed. We decided to start acting! We gathered a group of girls willing to sew, bought the necessary materials and got down to work.
