Mister Bogdan is 59 and lost his both legs due to severe diabetes back in 2005. He is in a difficult health and financial condition. His small monthly budget amounts to approximately PLN 1300. It incorporates a social allowance for a single household, caretaking-oriented allowance, as well as SII benefit – PLN 500 for people unable to exist on their own. Additionally, he manages to accumulate a bit of money by selling gas canisters – approximately PLN 30 per month. Mister Bogdan has some difficulties with safe gas storing. His garage was broken into and some bottles were stolen. Therefore, we would like to properly secure his garage. Mister Bogdan is forced by his situation to sit next to a church and beg people for money and support. As he lives in the countryside, he goes to a church located in a nearby town. He drives some of the distance by a scooter and the remainder - by a train.

The amount of money our Protégé has at his disposal every month is insufficient to cover the most basic expenses: food, medications, domestic detergents, and bills for the house he lives in.
The man dreams about new devices that would make his life as a disabled person easier and more bearable. Without a proper equipment, he is even unable to move within the house to meet his physiological needs. Said pieces of equipment involve, among others: leg prosthetics, wheelchair and scooter. The latter is vital, for it makes Mister Bogdan independent enough to go to a nearby shop, pharmacy, or doctor. His legs were amputated 14 years ago, so the equipment used by our Protégée has to be replaced. Mister Bogdan lives in his family house where he was raised by his parents. They died 30 years ago, but Mister Bogdan is sentimental about the house and does what he can to stay there. That is why he would like the object to be renovated to allow him to live there for the rest of his live decently. His living conditions are far from being perfect. The house in question is dilapidated and poorly equipped. There are no funds to renovate it and to purchase new items of furniture or items necessary to live normally, such as: a washing machine, freezer, or gas stove, fridge, kitchen cabinets and sink. All the available devices should be replaced or thoroughly renovated instantly. It also goes for a shack, in which Mister Bogdan stores his firewood. Aside from that, due to his health condition, Mister Bogdan is unable to take care of his house, even though he tries very hard. He is a kind, good-hearted person, who struggles with disability. He lives alone. Last year, he buried his partner and when he finally managed to establish a meaningful relationship with another one, she died as well. Near his house, there is a plot of land that Mister Bogdan’s friend turned into a vegetable garden.
We are very determined to help Mister Bogdan to live in decent conditions. Those current ones are far from being acceptable. We hope that you will also join us in the attempt to help Mister Bogdan. He is a kind, good-hearted person, who struggles with disability
