Missis Wladyslawa and Seniors
Please familiarize yourself with the entire description provided below. Mrs.Wladyslawa is 89. Until 80, she was a Caritas volunteer. Now, she needs some support herself. Our Charge had a difficult childhood and experienced many gloomy moments in her adult life. On the second day of Christmas in 2018, her fourth and last son died. Two of her sons died of cancer and the other two - of a heart disease. We met Mrs. Wladyslawa just before Christmas 2019. When we asked her what she wanted the most, she said that she did not want to be alone on Christmas Eve.

Władysława openly states that the relationship with her mother was full of physical and mental violence. As a child, little Władzia heard many insults, unpleasant words, and slander from her mother. She experienced physical pain as her head was hit against the wall many a time. The mother did not allow Władysława to start education. The woman completed only two years of primary school and can hardly write her sign. When she was 12, she was left by her mother and was forced to take care of her severely ill father. During the initial years of her life, she did not even know her name, and she was only called in a highly discriminatory manner.
When she grew up and became the mother of four sons, she established a different relationship with her children. She ensured them a lot of love, warmth, and support. Władysława was glad that she had several children, as she was brought up without siblings. Even though she had a twin brother, he died two weeks after his birth.
Despite her traumatic experiences, she has a lot of inner strength and it is a pleasure to listen to her and look at her. She is very modest. Despite the horrors she experienced, she is very humble and happy to live. It is remarkable that - regardless of the traumatic experiences of her childhood and being mistreated by people - she still wants the closeness of other people.
When our support for Władzia started, the purpose of our collection was to help her with grocery shopping, buy medications for her, and improve her housing conditions. However, it all came to an end when - in October 2020 - Władysława could no longer walk and therefore had to be moved to a Nursing Home a month later.
About eighty other people live in the current place of residence of Władysława. Those are predominantly elderly people. We also frequently receive requests from seniors being in a difficult financial situation all over Poland. Therefore, while helping our lovely Władysława, we will also attempt to help other Seniors in need as much as possible.
Said people are often very ill and in many cases - they cannot count on the support of their families for various reasons. Older people are ashamed to ask their relatives for help because they do not want to be a burden for anyone. They assure their loved ones that they are doing great and that they feel amazing. Nevertheless, in reality, they barely make ends meet, live very modestly, and are even frequently unable to buy basic medications for themselves.
Mrs. Wladyslawa’s needs we collect funds for:
- Renovation of the bathroom - Canceled due to the transfer of Władysława to the Nursing Home.
