We, about us. We are a group of friends who want to help others. We believe that “to live, means you have to give something from yourself'.
We help in particular, specific cases (individuals, families), we focus on situations which result from unexpected events, which are emergency cases; we also try to prevent - where it is still possible - to protect someone from falling into hopeless situation.
We help through individual projects, a tailor made intervention, one time support; time of one project should not be longer than 3-6 months, a maximum of one year in case of some annual scholarships for example.
We do not run projects concentrated solely on addiction recovery, we do not organise collecting funds for individual treatments, we do not realise projects oriented only on fund raising.
The Foundation does not employ employees and all activities are entirely based on the involvement of the Polish Wave's Team. The entire funds are allocated to support selected cases. There is no remuneration in any form for the foundation's activities. The Foundation finances its projects entirely from private funds - from contributions from members and friends of the Foundation.
