A Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is still counting money, but what it's known as far, they set up a new record. During one day, 120 000 volunteers from around the world helped the foundation make the score.
The collected funds will be used to ensure the best standards of diagnostics and treatment of children's eye disorders and eye diseases.
Some of the money will also go to Ukraine as the foundation decided to buy medical equipment for Ukrainian hospitals. They want to purchase cardiac monitors, pulse oximeters, defibrillators, respirators, incubators, ultrasound machines, and more.
The final amount will be known at the end of March.
