Foundation Duval has decided to assist one of the Special Care School in Żnin - http://www.szkola.znin.pl/. Foundation has endowed a rehabilitation trip of 26 children of the school in a pension in Zakopane.http://www.patrona.com.pl/marzenie.html
In response to an appeal of a Scholl in Kopice Foundation Duval has purchased and delivered sports equipment. Children received basket balls, footballs, valley balls and other requested by the school.
Pursuing the “artistic” topic and thanks to the courtesy of our dear friend, Marcin Czerwiński, we put up his graphic works for on-line auction, which could be seen on the website www.naszemiasto.pl. Thanks to the auctions, the Foundation’s account was credited with PLN 900 just over a week!
On 26th November 2005 during the exhibition of graphic arts by Marcin Czerwiński titled Insane, held in a Warsaw-based club, Barbiebar, we organised a fund-raising event. During the event lottery tickets were sold to raise funds for the Duval Foundation. Each lottery ticket participated in the prize draw i.e. the graphics arts. Thanks to the artist who decided to give some of his works to our Foundation, we were able to encourage the club visitors to buy lottery tickets. Thus we collected PLN 380. The money fast turned into gifts for Polish Miokołajki (St. Nicholas Day) event for Children residing in Children’s Home in Kisielany (Siedlecki poviat), which were handed over to them at the Foundation’s seat on 7th December 2005.
In response to the request our Foundation received some months ago, we decided to support the hospital in the poor Bieszczady Mountain Region in Sanok. The hospital delivers ca. 750 babies every year and performs ca. 150 caesarean operations. Our gift is a piece of medical equipment i.e.Cardiotocograph, which renders a safe delivery possible. The Cardiotocograph worth nearly PLN 10,000 reached the hospital on the very St. Nicholas Day! (our Polish “Mikołajki”!) „Tygodnik Sanocki” weekly wrote to us: „However inconspicuous it may have looked, it is a useful and necessary piece of equipment. By saying that, we mean a new CTG that reached the maternity ward in Sanok hospital on Tuesday, 6th of December 2005. It turned out to be the perfect St. Nicholas’ Day gift, not only for the to-be mothers but also for the medical personnel. The Warsaw-based Duval Foundation became [...]
We set out for Lodz to meet our Children in the Home Hospice. We took the medical equipment with us that the hospice was much in need of i.e. oxygen concentrator and electric aspirator. In the nearest future the equipment will be used by the 11-year old Agatka. We also popped in to see Partyk who suffers from pemphigus, an immune disorder, who indulged himself in the sweets we brought for him! Linda Sztyller of the Duval Foundation gives the medical equipment to the Home Hospice for Children from Lodz region Patryk. “Danio” cream cheese and “Grzeski” bars are his greatest delicacies!

Po imprezie charytatywnej, którą zorganizowaliśmy 16-07-2005 dzięki naszym przyjaciołom z klubu Stalowe Magnolie w Krakowie, postanowiliśmy pomóc Zespołowi Placówek Opiekuńczo Wychowawczych Nr 2 z Krakowa. W budynku Zespołu Opiekuńczo Wychowawczego niedawno wybuchł pożar. Na szczęście nikomu nic się nie stało, ale straty materialne są duże. Przekazaliśmy na rzecz Placówki kwotę 5.000 PLN na remont po pożarze. Fragment Placówki po pożarze
„Evening with Conrado Moreno. Children from the Warsaw Orphanage No 1 will not forget the evening of 13th April 2005. Duval Foundation has organized for them The Spanish Evening, full of surprises, dancing, treats and joy. Spanish evening is the first in a series of educational and cultural meetings which Duval Foundation will organize in the coming months in selected Warsaw orphanages. The aim of such meetings is not only to provide children with attractions and joy but above all to zoom them with knowledge about the history, culture and sites with limited access. Children were delighted with Conrado Moreno who on everyday life can be seen in TVP2 program "Europe is like able". Their favorite actor from that program vividly talked about Spain, sang songs in his native language, organized competitions, danced, wore children on his shoulders and even to the delight [...]
