Seeking Support to Help Build First Dedicated Pediatric Trauma Center in Poland

Dr. Piotr Czauderna, Copernicus Hospital, Gdansk Poland

Dear PASGC Member and Friend,

On behalf of Dr. Czauderna, and the children, and families his team cares for at Copernicus Hospital in Gdańsk, Poland,  we are pleased to extend an opportunity for you to support us in raising funds to help establish the first dedicated Pediatric Trauma Center in Poland.

To accomplish this goal, a team of 7 Polish emergency services specialists will travel to Cincinnati Children’s this summer July 15 – July 22 to participate in the Pediatric Trauma Transformation Collaborative. During this week- long visit they will gain practical knowledge and training to effectively run a pediatric trauma center which will maximize the survival rates and outcomes of their young patients. Learn more abut the collaboration here.

Much of Copernicus Hospital’s budget has been allocated to fund the acquisition of equipment and critical infrastructure. As a result, the team struggles to secure funds for the travel expenses of several team members. Our goal is to raise $5000 to ensure the whole team can participate which is critical to success of their effort.

The aspiration of the Polish medical team involved with this initiative is admirable. Learning from the one of the best hospitals in America to improve the lives of children in Poland shows a great courage and determination to change the world of pediatric trauma care as they know it. That is something we as Polish-Americans should be very proud of and support their success. Following Gdansk, there are plans to build 6 more centers across whole Poland to ensure every injured child has a fair access to the best quality trauma care as needed. You can be part of this success story. Your friends and families in Poland  are the direct beneficiaries of your contribution.

Please join us in supporting this live saving cause by providing a donation in any amount. Details on how you can contribute are available here.

We also encourage you to reach our to your family and friends outside of Cincinnati and helps us spread the word about this honorable mission.
