Poland – Poczta Polska
Poczta Polska helping employees during the COVID – 19 Pandemic
Poczta Polska implemented an aid fund for employees and their families affected by COVID-19.
The “Pocztowy Dar” Foundation (“Postal Gift” Foundation) created a special aid fund for preserving the health and life of postal employees and their families affected by COVID-19. The funds accumulated originate from payments from companies of the Poczta Polska Group and are to be used only for this purpose.
Financial support can be provided to people who, after recovery, due to weakness and damage to the lungs or other organs, need further specialist treatment or medical equipment. The help they receive from the Foundation can be used for funding medicines, tests, medical visits, rehabilitation, medical procedures, operations, rehabilitation and medical equipment, etc. The creation of the fund was widely communicated in internal media. Information about it was also provided to all persons who potentially may be interested in obtaining support in this respect.
For now, due to the fact that new cases of COVID-19 are constantly appearing in Poland, it is difficult to estimate the results. The Foundation strives to ensure that no sick person or family member is left unattended.
