Please read the entire description carefully. Bogdan is 59. He lost his both legs as a result of chronic diabetes in 2005. He found himself in a difficult health and financial situation. His modest monthly budget just exceeds PLN 1300. It consists of a permanent benefit for single people granted by the Social Insurance Institution, a nursing allowance provided by the same unit, as well as a benefit ensured by the Social Security Office – 500+ allowance for individuals incapable of living independently. What is more, he can also survive thanks to a small amount that he manages to earn by selling gas bottles – it amounts to about PLN 30 per month. Nevertheless, it must be mentioned that Bogdan has had remarkable difficulties storing said gas bottles safely. His garage was broken into and the majority of the bottles were stolen, so we want to secure his garage in a proper manner. Due to the fact that he lives in the countryside, he travels to the nearby city by scooter. It is important to buy Bogdan a new mode of transportation, but as for now, we are helping repair and maintain the one that Bogdan has at his disposal.

Bogdan has been living in his family home where he grew up and lived with his parents. His parents died about 30 years ago, but Bogdan has a great fondness for his family home and wants to stay there at all costs. That is why he dreams of renovating his place of residence in order to spend all his remaining days there in a dignified manner. His living conditions leave a lot to be desired. The house is neglected and rather modest. The man lacks funds for renovation and purchasing new furniture or other equipment necessary for normal functioning. We have already done a lot for Bogdan in that regard, but a lot is still ahead of us. We have renovated the kitchen, replaced all items of furniture and appliances, revitalized the hut in which Bogdan keeps wood, as well as renovated the roof. Individual rooms, bathroom, attic, and garage are next on our agenda.
Bogdan lives alone and – due to his health condition - he is unable to take care of the apartment by himself, even though he tries to do so very hard. Last year, he buried his life partner and when he managed to establish a relationship with a new woman, fate was cruel to him once again, as she died soon afterwards. He has a plot of land near his house where his friend has created a vegetable garden for Bogdan. We are highly motivated to help Bogdan live in decent conditions. Those current ones are rather underwhelming to say at least. We hope that you will join us in helping Bogdan.
