BitBay does good again! Like two super heroes, the cryptocurrency exchange and the TVS Foundation have joined forces to defeat the main “bad”. The latter was coronavirus. In March, two entities organized a fundraiser to support health care in fighting the epidemic. The last part of the funds accumulated during this action will be transferred to the Hospital Emergency Department of SP ZOZ Municipal Hospital Complex in Chorzów for the purchase of a position for resuscitation and examination of newborns.
BitBay and fundraising to fight coronavirus
BitBay and the cryptocurrency community together donated over PLN 170,000 to fight the coronavirus.
Let us remind you that at the beginning of the epidemic, the stock exchange board supported the amount of PLN 100,000 with Provincial Hospital Specialist Megrez Sp. z o. o. in Tychy, which was allocated to the necessary equipment and sanitary measures to protect doctors and medical workers.
However, this is not the end! Then a collection site in cryptocurrencies and zloty was launched. Thanks to the generosity of the cryptocurrency community in Poland, we have managed to exceed the assumed collection target by over PLN 20,000. After counting the deposits in zlotys and after no commission conversion of donations in cryptocurrencies, the collection ended with the amount of PLN 70,062.69.
What will these funds be spent on?
“The first part of the funds in the amount of PLN 10,000 was transferred to the Polish Society of Medical Rescuers in Tychy for the purchase of a medical tent, which will serve as a medical point or field hospital for patients of the Provincial Specialist Hospital Megrez Sp. z o.o. in Tychy.
The second tranche, in the amount of just over PLN 60,000, was allocated for equipping the station for resuscitation and examining newborns of the SP ZOZ facility. The Municipal Hospital Complex in Chorzów, and precisely the hospital Emergency Department. This equipment will allow faster recovery for children who already need help in the treatment of coronavirus, but also for newborns and mothers who have been diagnosed with COVID-19. The resuscitation and neonatal examination stand will allow for immediate fight against complications in the youngest patients. “
– explains the stock exchange.
The collection was strongly supported by the cryptocurrency community, organizations and portals.
BitBay does good
This is not the first such stock exchange action. In December 2019, BitBay collected PLN 5,000 for the “Rainbow” orphanage in Katowice as part of its holiday collection. For over 5 years of its activity, the stock exchange has carried out seven charity campaigns (it is now the eighth!) And thanks to the commitment of the cryptocurrency community, it has donated over PLN 170,000 in total to legitimate goals. Each of the shares was also generously supported by the stock exchange itself and its employees. What effects will the current collection bring? We’ll find out soon enough.
