The Globalworth Foundation enhances the health of children with preventative ultrasound screenings program for children.
Globalworth Foundation donated 32 000 Euros for a children health project- special edition of "No to cancer in children" program.
Globalworth Foundation together with the Ronald McDonald Foundation examined 900 children during a 12-day preventative ultrasound screenings program of children. The examinations were painless, safe and free of charge.
The examinations enable early identification of childhood malignancies and developmental abnormalities. Early detection of a cancerous lesion is essential for early diagnosis and effective treatment and increases the chance of recovery.
Examinations were carried out in 3 Globalworth communities : Warsaw, Wrocław and Kraków. In each of these cities, radiologists aboard the Ambulance - a unique mobile medical station equipped with modern ultrasound equipment - examined children aged 9 months to 6 years.
After the completion of the examination parents receive the result and in cases when needed medical advice.
In Poland, around 1,200-1,300 new cases of cancer in children are diagnosed annually. When a child falls ill, adults are very often scared and helpless. Questions arise as to what could have been done to prevent the disease. Child’s cancer detected at an early stage is curable in most cases. This is why commonly done diagnostics and prevention is one of the basic ways to effectively fight cancer.
