The European Foundation for Human Rights held a charity event for the villagers titled “Kids for Kids” (further info: http://www.efhr.eu/2012/06/27/aid-for-children-placed-childrens-homes/?lang=en) in collaboration with the Centre for Polish Culture and Education ‘Plus’ in Brussels, the Polish School Joachim Lelewel at the Polish Embassy in Brussels and the Middle East Institute Foundation in Warsaw, with help of many other people of good will from Brussels.
The Foundation reports that organizers of the event were able to support 4 facilities around Vilnius, forwarding gifts (clothes, toys, school supplies and books) to schools and parishes in the Black Bor, Pabradė, Maišiagala (thanks to cooperation with Fr. Pr. J. Aszkiełowicz), Nemėžis and to pre-school “Źródełko” (“The Little Fountain”) cooperating with Mrs. Lucja Usik. The gifts will be further transmitted to the families in need.
The Foundation is glad that the action was successful and all the aids have been forwarded, and it also puts great hope that in the future similar action will take place more often and there will be more and more people willing to contribute to similar events.
