Handover of Donations to IPA Poland’s Ukraine Aid

11 May 2022

On 24 April 2022, a donation from the international aid for Ukraine was handed over to our Polish section in Lodz/Poland.

In my capacity as Treasurer Social Affairs, I was welcomed to Lodz by Polish Section President Piotr Wójcik and Vice-President Aneta Sobieraj.

From the international donations for Ukraine Aid received so far, on this occasion 10,000 Euros were handed over to the Polish Section.

The donation was handed over in an orphanage in Lodz, which currently houses 106 people from the Ukraine (93 children and 13 adults). This orphanage has made room for a further 150 people.

The donations are urgently needed for the purchase of food, schoolbooks and electronic learning supplies, in order to be able to offer distance learning in Ukrainian.

The importance of helping orphanages was shown when the donation was handed over. The retired police officer who took us from the hotel to the orphanage, had also been placed in this orphanage from the age of 5 to 19.
