"Home away from home during a child's illness"
Press Glass, a leading European glazing manufacturer, in cooperation with one of its global glass suppliers, Guardian Glass, has joined the group of partners supporting the construction of a "home away from home during a child's illness" in Warsaw.
The initiator of the second "home away from home during a child's illness" project is the Ronald McDonald Foundation, and the idea behind the establishment of the facility is based on enabling hospitalized children and their families to be close to each other during the difficult period of fighting illness. The home will be located in Warsaw, near the Józef Polikarp Brudziński Independent Public Children's Clinical Hospital. What is unique about this project is that, as the first in the world, it will combine not only residential, but also preschool functions. It will house, in addition to parents, healthy siblings of children of the Home's families, children of students and hospital staff.
We realize that oncology in Poland, especially today, needs comprehensive support. When young patients and their loved ones are taking on the biggest challenge of their lives, providing the comfortable spaces of the Family House outside the home makes it possible for families to be close to each other and to focus together on the most important goal of their child's recovery. - Gerard Plaze of Press Glass' PR department says.
Fighting the disease is a huge challenge not only for young patients, but also for their families. That's why it's so important for them to be able to be close to each other during this difficult time. We are pleased to be able to help with this by supporting the construction of the foundation's "Home away from Home" in Warsaw," says Jakub Czapigo, Key Account Manager at Guardian Glass.
In the first stage, Press Glass manufactured and supplied the House with double-chambered units for window and facade joinery. These were fitted with highly selective Guardian SunGuard® glass. Products from this line help create optimally illuminated interiors and prevent them from overheating in summer; in winter, in turn, they protect rooms from heat escape.
In the second stage, Press Glass will supply glazing for skylights and interior glazing.
