We usually give small support and little gifts, but this time we wanted to do much more. We called the Orphanage in Łbiska and asked about their needs and dreams …and it appeared that kids dreamt about a playground, bikes and bike stands and shelters. We were extremely happy to hear about it and make their dreams come true. [...]
