Please familiarize yourself with the entire description provided below. Leokadia is 95. An accidental meeting resulted in her being covered by the protection of our Foundation. Now, thanks to your wonderful support, her fate looks a lot brighter. We would like to tell you the story of Leokadia and encourage you to help this warm, modest woman. The life of Leokadia changed forever with the outbreak of the war. Although she managed to survive the Warsaw Uprising, she had to come to terms with the death of her loved ones, as she lost both her parents and her brother. Nevertheless, she could not bury all of them - Leokadia's mother died in a bombed hospital and was never found, so there is no grave of said family member for the woman to visit.

The harsh reality of both the war and the Uprising still haunts Leokadia, who emphasizes that the burden of her memories bothers her to a gradually greater extent with age. For her husband, she left the house of her grandparents in Warsaw, to which she was never allowed to return. Leokadia's husband is long gone. The woman receives a modest pension, which must be enough for her to cover all the fees, purchase food, buy basic cleaning supplies, as well as key medications. Our protégé has accepted her fate. She has stated that she could only count on the company of her friends, but there are fewer of them - they are elderly people, who frequently get sick and in some cases - pass away.
Leokadia struggles with pain. Her cervical spine is getting worse, and getting prescription-based medications regularly requires remarkable funds. A single exemplary prescription includes 8 items - 8 medications that will help relieve pain. However, they have to be purchased first. In addition, our protégé has been struggling with the consequences of a bacterial disease that started in 2012. The overburdened organism has not returned to its full fitness to this day - the excess of water accumulates in one of Leokadia’s lungs. As a result, a conservative treatment and constant medical supervision are necessary. What is even sadder, Leokadia had an accident at the beginning of 2019, which ended in a fracture.
The Protégés of the Foundation are usually very modest, warm people - it is undoubtedly the case with Leokadia. We would like to encourage you to watch our discussions and listen to the story we would like to share with you. Leokadia slowly yet steadily loses hope and faith in the future. She also constantly repeats that she is very tired. She has enough of hardships, difficult experiences, and life that has not spared her so far.
