“Poland is fighting the coronavirus pandemic. The number of people who have been confirmed to be infected with COVID-19 is growing rapidly. There are also fatalities. An epidemic emergency has broken out across the country, and medical personnel are working tirelessly. It turns out that Poles want to support the people fighting for our lives and taking care of us.” Onet.pl announced the launch of the fundraising campaign #MealForADoctor (Pol. #PosiłekDlaLekarza), whose originators want to help doctors, nurses and ambulance crews by offering them free meals from local catering outlets.
According to the portal, the fundraising campaign, organised by Spontaniczny Sztab Obywatelski (Spontaneous Civic Staff), the Niskie Składki (Low Contributions) association and the Open Dialogue Foundation, has become very popular. “Anyone who donates any amount of money can fund a free meal for hospital workers. Any restaurant that wants to join the action can do so using a special form. The list of catering outlets is constantly being updated on the campaign website,” we read in the column.
