In mid-October, the Elementary School No. 52 in Warsaw's Targówek district, with the support of the Humanosh Foundation, held an action to help children refugees from Belarus.
The campaign was initiated by one of the school volunteers - grade 8 student Pola Zielinska, together with her mother. The collection was made possible thanks to the support and active involvement of Anna Bartoszewska, a PE teacher at the school, who, together with Ms. Anna Niemira and Ms. Katarzyna Frymark, takes care of the school volunteers.
The teacher explains that the children are very eager to participate in such activities. - Pola and her mother came to us with the idea of the action. We were only too happy to join it and meet the great desire of our students and their families to help others. Help for refugees from Belarus would not have succeeded without the eyes and hearts of the students, which were open to helping. We were only intermediaries," says Anna Bartoszewska.
Action to help children
Students of SP 52 were dedicatedly collecting school supplies, clothes, books, toys and cleaning products for a week for children who, together with their parents, fled Belarus to Poland and are in a difficult financial situation.
The relief campaign was a great success. It was attended by nearly 60 students and their parents, who donated huge amounts of items for Belarusian children, including school backpacks, clothes, shoes, pencil cases, blankets and even scooters. Many of the gifts were personal, addressed to specific children, with dedication cards attached.
I'm glad I could do it - says the initiator of the action, an eighth-grader named Pola. I feel the need to help others. My mother is from Belarus, so this topic is especially close to me. I know what is happening there now.
I am a Belarusian, although I have lived in Poland for several years. I can't remain indifferent and simply observe the events in my country. I'm glad that in this way we managed to dress and equip for school Belarusian kids, located in refugee centers throughout Poland - Aleksandra Zielinska, Pola's mother, says.
All the collected items have been donated to the Humanosh Foundation and are already reaching the recipients.
