JOIN US IN HELPING MACIEK

Maciek is 13 years old and eight years ago was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He underwent surgery which resulted in the loss of his eyesight, however after an intensive re-habilitation he partially regained vision in his right eye. Unfortunatelly the tumor came back and in order to rescue Maciek an operation is needed. It is not possible to carry out this type of intervention in Poland without putting Maciek at risk of loosing his painfully regained eyesight, which could also cause mental retardation and memory loss. The only chance he has is at the medical university at Goettingen and the estimated cost is 20,000Euros. The operation would be carried out by one of the most prominent surgeons, Professor Veit Rohde. If you want to join us in helping Maciek you can either do it through us or directly at the Polish foundation:

The Fulfilled Dreams Foundation (Fundacja Spelnione Marzenia) takes care of children with cancer in two specialized centres in Warsaw: the Institute of Mother and Child which treats children from all over Poland and the Public Clinical Hospital which treats children from Mazowsze and neighbouring counties. The foundation also gives its support and assistance to all oncology centres in Poland.

LHCF COMMITTS TO AN ORPHANAGE

FOR GRAVELY ILL CHILDREN

The foundation 'House in Lodz' is a place that gathers children who are not only gravely ill and disabled but also deprived of parental love often because of their condition. Children come from all walks of life carrying sometimes heavy psychological luggage. This orphanage is the only institution of that sort in all of Poland meaning that all other gravely ill orphans grow up in hospitals or hospices often surrounded by older people at the end of their lives.
 
The project came to life in 2007 thanks to Jolanta Bobinska, a woman with a big heart and a determination to help the most needy children. In this unique House children find not only much needed security, love and care but also are offered a chance for development.
 
We are proud to help this organisation in furthering their goals and are committing our ongoing support through donations and gifts that we hope will be able to contribute to the wellbeing of the children.

LHCF in cooperation with "I have a dream" foundation (Fundacja Mam Marzenie) fulfilled a dream of a 12 year old Agatka by donating a laptop. 'I have a dream' foundation is a Polish charity which grants wishes to children with life threatening conditions.

LHCF has its original roots in granting a wish to a sick child and will continue this tradition during its existence to honour the little girl who was the seed to our organization. 


LHCF SUPPORTS THE POMERANIA HOSPICE FOR CHILDREN

"AT HOME CHILDREN ARE LESS AFRAID"

The hospice aim is to reduce suffering and improve quality of life, however little might be left, and to surround the families with the necessary psychological care. Children in the arms of their parents feel not only safer and calmer but they also feel love, so important at the time of their departure...


LHCF grants a scholarship 

LHCF recently started collaborating with a charity Vide Supra that supports exceptionaly gifted young people who are in financial difficulties by creating grant programs so they can have an equal start in life. This year LHCF granted a scholarship to Sylwia Niedzwiecka, a very talented art student and  laureate of many artistic competitions who we hope  will have the chance to realize her dream and pursue her passion  for many years to come.     

January 2010

Kubus

However with the right amount of rehabilitation, and a good dose of determination, little Kubus has a chance to recover.
