    Kasia's story

    Asked: why do I help? I answer - because it's in my genes

    More than once - in the history of our entire family - we found ourselves in situations that taught us the value of helping people in life. Now we would like to pass these values on to others.

     

    My name is Katarzyna Skopiec. I am the co-founder of the foundation. My grandparents were awarded the title of Righteous. This has meaning.

     

    In 2008, my husband Peter and I took care of Sonam, a Tibetan girl who came to Poland to study. Currently, Sonam is a doctor and my daughter.

    Her younger sister Kandżu came into our lives 3 years later and went into dentistry, and at the Foundation she is a volunteer and helps with many activities.

     

    Our family consists of my husband Piotr Skopiec and our children. Piotr is a key organizer of medical missions. As part of Humanosh Med Evacuation, he actively helps by, among other things, traveling to Ukraine, risking his life in the process. Our children: Sonam Skopiec, Zuzanna Fiedler, Kandżu Skopiec and Franciszek Obuchowicz.

    Thanks to these experiences, we know how to make the impossible possible. We know how to help refugees overcome the barriers that prevent them from basic functioning in our country. We know exactly how to deal with children, when dealing with the simplest matter is often even more difficult due to their legal status, which is not fully settled.

     

     

    My grandmother at the age of 24, having a small child - my mother - risked her life and that of her family to save 39 people. When asked - why? she said - because that's what one does. Simply put.

    During the last 10 years I have learned how to

    That's why I would like to share my experience, help others, educate and raise awareness, as well as support various institutions - starting from kindergarten to college.

    Because we are all children of one world!

    Our family history

    When asked if we can handle raising 14-year-old Sonam, 12-year-old Zuzia said that if her grandmother managed to help 39 people, she too could live in a room with one Tibetan girl.

    Chime's story is amazing, as an 11-year-old she abandoned her family home and fled across the Himalayas to India, where she went to school. Due to the fact that she did not learn well she was expelled from that school. For a little girl from Tibet there are only two choices in such a situation - to become a prostitute or... a seamstress.

    Here another problem arose - Chime could not sew. With help came her uncle Ajama and the Sam Jub Ling Foundation, who, at the invitation of the Bednarska School Complex in Warsaw, decided to bring her to Poland as part of the Multi-kulti program.

    Already in Poland were her cousins Sonam and Lodroma, who had also arrived earlier at the invitation of the Foundation, Uncle Ajam and the school. However, as it turned out during the trip, coming to Poland without a passport was not an easy undertaking. Chime carried only a Government of India-issued travel document for refugees, which did not authorize her to board FinnAir. In the end, however, she flew out.

    We met Chime on May 2, 2008 at Unia Lubelska Square in Warsaw. She came to meet us, accompanied by her uncle and Donata from the Foundation. The next meeting was already at our home, where it turned out that the Ajama Foundation was looking for a home not only for the then eighteen-year-old Chime, but also two years younger Londroma and fourteen-year-old Sonam.
     
    The girls had already spent time in Poland, so they spoke little Polish. Chime spoke only Tibetan, poorly in Chinese, not to mention English.
     
    Zaczynały się wakacje, podczas których postanowiliśmy się dziewczynami zaopiekować. Dziewczyny stopniowo zaczęły zjednywać sobie kolejnych członków rodziny – od mojego taty zaczynając. Nie potrzebowaliśmy wiele czasu by zrozumieć, że dziewczynki powinny trzymać się razem. Zaczęliśmy od najmłodszej.
     
    In September 2008, Sonam came to live in a room with our Susie. It was not easy for us. We knew we lacked experience, we acted intuitively. And it was only September... Sonam's guardians were completely different people. We had no documents, and one question kept boiling in our heads - what next?

     

    Ms. Donata at the Foundation gave us the idea of a trip to Tibet, where we were to meet Sonam's parents. We didn't need to be told twice. Without thinking much, the three of us went to Tibet. Along with our visas and our willingness to take over custody, we took with us pictures of Sonam and Zuzi, a whole backpack of toys, Sonam's letter to her parents and my grandmother's ring, which we wanted to give to Sonam's mother, as well as a notarized deed drawn up before we left, in which her dad entrusts us with his child.

    After obtaining documents for Sonam, our new life with three children began. Whenever we found ourselves lacking skis, bicycles or clothes, there was someone with a willingness to help. Marysia Kowalewska started the "Merry Wory" campaign, and Ania Ambroziak helped with ski equipment and beautiful clothes. Everything finally started to come together.

    Our story

    The idyll was interrupted by the death of Sonam's cancer-stricken mother. It was at that time that the thought of adopting Kandji - Sonam's younger sister - germinated in us. Our financial situation at the time, did not allow us to take this step. Fortunately, again on our way we met more good people. Krzysztof Sajnóg helped us realize the journey for Kandji, paying for her ticket to Poland. It wasn't easy, I didn't fall in love with her right away either, but it didn't take long for this situation to change.

    And so we began another chapter of our journey together. The most beautiful one we could have imagined.
