Mr. John with his son Christopher

Please read the entire description carefully. We are very sad to announce the death of Mrs. Apolonia. In this very difficult time, we will continue to support Mr. John. Initially, Mrs. Apolonia and Mr. John were covered by the support of our foundation. While helping our Charges, we were also supporting Christopher. The needs to be satisfied have not changed. First of all, there is the need to help the individuals in question with the costs of everyday life and basic expenses. Their living conditions also leave a lot to be desired. Mr. John, 73, lives in the countryside in the Lubelskie Province. As of currently, he lives only with his 47-year-old son, Christopher. Until 9th February 2022, Mrs. Apolonia lived with them. Mr.John has been struggling with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic kidney disease, anemia, and hypertension. His medical history also includes a psycho-organic syndrome and a stay in a psychiatric hospital due to behavioral disorders. The discussed family lives in rather modest conditions - it is definitely not enough for them to develop and grow as a societal unit.

The individuals in question live in an old wooden house without the access to running water. They use water from a nearby well by using a hose. They have no money for medications, covering bills, or purchasing cleaning products. Christopher the son of Mr. John and Mrs. Apolonia, has serious health problems as well and has been issued a certificate of disability. He would like to be a financial support for his dad, but he is struggling with the consequences of a ruptured cerebral hemangioma - he suffers from memory problems, epilepsy, as well as - the inability to work. Before the health problems occurring, he worked and earned money in Germany in order to build a new house. Nevertheless, the condition discussed above thwarted his plans. He is often visited by a teenage son who helps his dad and grandpa as much as he can. In the summer, he mows the grass and in the winter - he takes care of the stove. He is happy to keep his relatives company.



 

Mr. John is surrounded by remarkably helpful people. His neighbor, Maria, who is a nurse, helps in terms of purchasing medications. She also took care of insulin injections for Mrs. Apolonia. There is also Eva, a good soul who lives in a nearby town. Several times a week, she does some shopping and cleans up the house. Despite the great commitment and work performed by the discussed two women, the family lacks almost everything.
