Within the framework of the “Support for Health Care” project, the initiator and organiser of the action, Belvedere Catering by Design provided medical staff with over 70,000 meals, from March to June 2020. In the autumn, due to the worsening epidemiological situation, the action to support medical stuff was resumed. Thanks to the help provided by the programme’s donors, including Polpharma, Herbapol, Warbud and Sirens, as well as other companies and individuals, the Belvedere Team continues to purchase, prepare and deliver meals to hospitals and medical points.
“We are very grateful for the support from the partners, because with their help in the autumn, during the second wave of the disease, we could resume our action. Wolf Theiss responded to our appeal and joined the project as one of the first. Thanks to Wolf Theiss, over 300 meals were delivered just in November alone this year. This is a real support for the medical staff, who are fighting for our health and life on the front line,” stresses Beata Bronowicz, Sales and Marketing Director at the Belvedere Gourmet Group.
The project has covered several locations, including the Infectious Diseases Hospital on Wolska Street and the Central Clinical Hospital of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration on Wołoska Street. Complete meals are delivered to medical points 5 days a week. The persistently high daily number of new cases of the illness is a heavy burden on the Health Service. The Belvedere team accepts applications from hospitals caring for COVID-19 infected patients, which are ready to accept support for their staff.
“We express our gratitude to the doctors, nurses, rescuers and other medical personnel for their daily efforts to fight for patients’ health and lives. We encourage other law firms and companies not affected by business restrictions to support the project. We also thank the Belvedere Group, which initiated the project and engaged its team and logistics-production centre,” stated Tomasz Stasiak, Co-Managing Partner of Wolf Theiss in Poland.
According to the data from the day of publication of this press release, a total number of more than 1 million people in Poland have been infected. On 24 October 2020, the entire country was covered by the red zone restrictions. Numerous limitations apply, including on functioning of restaurants, organisation of events, meetings and gatherings, and until the end of this year, remote teaching in schools was extended.
