Mister Mieczyslaw is 76. He has been taken care of by our Foundation, because without our help, he will still be trapped inside of his house. While moving around by means of a wheelchair, it is not possible to leave the habitable space freely. The greatest obstacle is the lack of a proper platform that would allow him to drive up or down the stairs located near the door to his block of flats. It is hard to imagine what someone who has spent his entire life in an active manner feels, especially when he is not even able to go for a short walk to the nearby park. Only a proper elevator can help Mister Mieczyslaw, but - as it usually happens in such cases - there are no financial resources that would allow for such a solution. We are counting on you together with Mister Mieczyslaw, our Charge, who now only dreams of being able to leave the house again.
The stairs to the block where Mister Mieczyslaw lives are an insurmountable obstacle for a person in a wheelchair. Fit and healthy people probably do not even notice them, but someone who cannot walk on his own is doomed without the help of others. However, it is not always enough - Mieczyslaw's wife alone is not be able to support him at all times due to her limited physical capabilities. Our charge hardly remembers the last time he had the opportunity to go to his favorite park – a person who was once professionally active and full of energy is nowadays confined to a wheelchair and has to rely on the support of other people.Mister Mieczyslaw lost his both legs as a result of a severe atherosclerosis. He longs for any form of contact with the outside world which – although it is right outside the window - seems to be incredibly distant.
A sensitive man, tired of isolation, Mieczysław, used to be a musician. What is more, he taught at a music school and simply lived his life to the fullest, just like every other healthy person. Nowadays, he puts his thoughts on paper by writing poems. He also waits for the opportunity of being able to breathe at least some fresh air while being in the nearby park.
Needs we collect funds for:
- Adaptation of the block of flats Mister Mieczyslaw lives in – building an elevator allowing handicapped people, so that Mr. Mieczyslaw could easily leave his apartment and return to it whenever he wants.
