More than 160 Polish radio stations on Wednesday supported children with hearing impairments by airing half an hour of commercials to mark Radio Day.

Advertisements were aired from 8 am by 164 radio stations nationwide, including all of Polish Radio’s channels.
Proceeds from the ads will go to the Association of Parents and Friends of Hearing Impaired Children in Krosno, south-eastern Poland.
The organisation supports hearing-impaired children in adapting to their environments.
Radio Day in Poland celebrates radio as a medium for sharing information.
It commemorates a document, signed on April 11, 1923, by Polish radio engineers, which paved the way for broadcast laws and Poland’s first trial radio transmission two years later. (vb/pk)
