Let's Help!

All hands on deck - it seems that this saying, which became the motto of our most recent (and record-breaking) fundraiser, is more relevant than ever. As Poland attempts to slow down the Covid-19 infection rate by self-isolation, some people - especially those with underlying conditions, and elderly citizens, might require help with day-to-day tasks. That's when our Peace Patrol volunteers and Collection Centre activists come to offer their support. 

We decided to launch a service which allows people to request help. Once their request has been approved, their location is added to our interactive map and volunteers in the area can respond to the request!
