The COVID-19 pandemic increased the demand for medical equipment, including ventilators that support or replace the work of lungs of the patient. Many Polish hospitals, fearing the growing number of coronavirus-infected patients, are looking for funds to buy them, as they may be the last chance for many patients. Not only did Cornerstone Investment Management buy the protective masks but also, from the initiative of its founder, Przemysław Krych, together with Santander Consumer Bank S.A., purchased four life-support machines, which were donated to the Jan Mikulicz-Radecki University Clinical Hospital in Wrocław.
Hospitals across the country are struggling with the lack of basic protective equipment necessary during the coronavirus threat. In order to ensure the safety of those who are on the front line in the fight against the disease, our company has donated five thousand protective masks to medical workers of the Independent Public Children's Clinical Hospital in Warsaw. Thanks to the initiative of the employees and the support of the Management of the company, it was possible to support the hospital the most vulnerable patients of the hospital - children from the transplantology department.
A prime example of the green, clean energy investment included the investment in the largest wind farm in Poland with MW 1,100 total combined installed and planned capacity. It is an environmentally friendly investment, reducing both CO2 emissions, minimising its carbon footprint and creating local employment opportunities.
Mention should also be made of the charitable foundations which were co-financed by the company and its founder, in a total amount of PLN 11 million over the last 5 years. It is mainly the Jan Karski Educational Foundation which aims to familiarise the next generations with the legacy of Jan Karski – a diplomat, courier for the Polish Underground State and lecturer at the Georgetown University. He became the world’s symbol of civic responsibility, defence of Human Rights and establishment of social relations based on tolerance and openness – values that are increasingly under threat.
The next project is the Griffin Art Space Foundation – which aims to support and promote young artists by organising exhibitions and various cultural events. Griffin Art Space Foundation supported and co-financed the largest events in the world of art and culture that took place in Poland including WRO International Biennale or Krakow Photo Month Festival.
