Roxanka is one of the kids cared for by the „To Rescue Children with Cancer” Foundation. Moved by the call of the aunt of 5-year old Roxanka, who is treated for neuroblastoma (stage 4 cancer) at the clinic in Wrocław, we bought several small gifts for her which were related to the „Frozen” film. We wish Roxanka the best of health and strength.

Christmas is a very busy period for the Duval Foundation, this year we received a list of Christmas wishes from the kids residing in the Orphanage of Nowa Sarzyna. Most youth dreamt of having fashion or sports clothing, winter anoraks, hats, scarves and gloves, but also: swimming accessories, watches, hair and body cosmetics, perfumes, a wireless bluetooth speaker, phone hands-free sets, books and sports footwear. We are very happy knowing to be able to make the kids’ dreams come true.
As in the previous years, the Duval Foundation funded Christmas presents for kids hospitalised at the Oncology and Haematology Department of the Children’s Hospital of the Medical University of Warsaw. As before, the event was held jointly with the Fulfilled Dreams Foundation, and the Szymon Majewski was the Santa Claus.
This year, the Duval Foundation received lovely letters addressed to Santa Claus, and since we believe that He brings the dream presents, we decided to make the kids’ dreams come true. A lot of hard work, but the kids’ smile and happiness are priceless. For single mothers, Santa Clause brought some cosmetics.
