For over 21 years now POLSAT Foundation has continued incessant efforts to improve the health and medical conditions for the youngest patients in Poland.
Children occupy a special place when looking at the social impact of Cyfrowy Polsat Group. For more than 21 years, POLSAT Foundation has incessantly worked to improve the health of the youngest patients in Poland. It organizes big, national campaigns the profits from which are allocated to the purchase of medical equipment for hospitals and medical centers taking care of children.
The Foundation understands that the illness of a child is a drama for many Polish families, not only in emotional but also in financial terms. Specialist treatment, pharmaceutical products or complicated surgeries are expensive and often exceed financial capabilities of parents. Due to various reasons the State Healthcare cannot provide appropriate care to all those in need.

- migration to Poland of the Family Liver Transplant program,
- creation of the first in Poland Children’s Ward for Autograft Transplants of Hematopoietic Stem Cells and Gene Therapy at the Department and Clinic of Hematology and Proliferative Diseases of the Wrocław Medical University,
