In many media outside of Poland it seems that this country is only talked about to discredit it. News like this do not appear in international media.
As you know, a few days ago some strong storms caused serious floods in Central Europe, mainly affecting Germany and Belgium. Although it was not cited by many international media, Poland was also affected by the storms. According to the Polish Ministry of the Interior, in ten days Polish firefighters carried out 25,000 interventions related to storms and floods.

The Polish Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, reported yesterday the sending of this aid in two messages posted on his Twitter account, one in Polish and the other in English:
Today, fulfilling the promise made to Chancellor Merkel, a Polish firefighters rescue team is setting off to #Kreuzau in Germany. Poland offered 70 desiccant devices which will help our neighbours deal with the consequences of the tragic floods in North Rhine-Westphalia. 🇵🇱🇩🇪

The German ambassador to Poland, Arndt Freytag von Loringhoven, today published a message of thanks to Poland, written in Polish, for this help:
Już ruszyły transporty z pomocą do #NRW🚒🚒 z osuszaczami, które będą wykorzystywane na terenach dotkniętych powodzią w @landnrw. Dziękujemy polskim strażakom! https://t.co/oxmdqlupY6

Curiously, at the time of publishing these entry, the German Foreign Ministry has not published any message in this regard on its official Twitter account.
