Wieliczka salt mine

Projects in Poland

Interacting with children at a respite centre is a humbling experience. Disability is still shunned by many people in Poland, so playing with the children is really important. Assisting the centre staff really helps by giving them a much-needed break from all their hard work.

Visit Auschwitz 

Visit Auschwitz, the site of the Nazi holocaust.

Rest & Relaxation

Beautiful city of Krakow

Spend time exploring the beautiful city of Krakow. Enjoy its ancient castle, renaissance buildings and vast market square – the largest medieval town square in Europe.
