In March 2016, Duval Foundation received a second hand TV set yet still in good working order from a friendly company. The TV was given to the participants of the Occupational Therapy Workshop in Dołubowo.
This has almost become our tradition that Duval Foundation founds a large portion of Christmas and Easter food for the Kids cared for by the “Pomagamy będącym w potrzebie” (We help the Needy) Association in Kotowo.
Duval Foundation has already donated cash to AMPFUTBOL team to help organise an international competition for amputees, AMP FUTBOL, and we were also one of the sponsors of the Polish team in the World Cup in Mexico!

The homeless from Kotow live extremely modest lives. There is PLN 50 per inhabitant per month. Most adults are the jobless. It becomes the worst in winter, as in summer they can earn some money by working in the forest. Their boss, Adam Drewniak, goes to no end of trouble to help them weather through this most difficult period, and he asked us for help. Duval Foundation again decided to support the inhabitants of Kotowo in Bircza district, where 40 homeless from all over Poland found shelter. This time we bought footwear that is so needed to work in the forest and hygiene items.
Duval Foundation again purchased and sent the most needed cosmetics for the Kids of the Child and Family Assistance Centre in Góra Włodowska.
This time Duval Foundation became involved in interior decoration of the Mother Veronique Centre in Lublin. We have paid for the design by Daria Pelchen and Andrzej Banaszewski, who designed the colourful and spacious drawing room to brighten up and improve the living conditions of the Kids.
