Mission

Help children, the sick, the elderly and people with special needs

We focus our help to institutions and charitable foundations that dedicate their efforts to the care of the disabled, children and the elderly with limited resources, soup kitchens for the homeless, abused women and children, education and rehabilitation of abandoned children, and children and young people with drug addiction problems. These institutions submit their requests for aid which are reviewed and approved after verifying their legitimacy as charitable organizations.

We collaborate with the adaptation and repair of nursing homes and shelters for children and we help communities in extreme poverty to improve their quality of life. We donate wheelchairs and essential items to disabled and low-income people. We help charity hospitals with supplies and equipment necessary to provide appropriate care to their patients.

The funds to finance these projects are raised by holding bingo halls, concerts, raffles and Christmas parties and with the support of generous sponsors. We monitor all donations ensuring that they reach their destination and are used according to the request received.

128/5000 We participate in community events supporting other organizations in projects related to our charitable mission.
