“Dom Dziecka Falbogi” – Orphanage at Falbogi
We're proud to announce our upcoming donation for the Poland v Scotland game in October. Undaunted by the efforts of a Norwegian referee and World Champions, but buoyed by a fabulous donation to help homeless kids to the “Off Road Kids” group in Dortmund, TACC will be making the next overseas donation of the Euro 2016 campaign to an Orphanage at Falbogi, just to the east of Warsaw.
The 30 bed orphanage which offers 24/7 supervised care for children from as young as 3 years through to school leaving age have requested public assistance to create a fitness/play room and to equip it with modern equipment. The project which will be completed with TACC’s donation will, in addition to the therapeutic benefits and enabling physical activity to be enjoyed on a daily basis, educate the children about healthy and balanced diets and assist them in the development of healthy eating habits.
In addition to full time care and meeting the physical and emotional needs of the children, the emphasis of the orphanage is towards personal development and equipping each child with the skills and confidence necessary to assume an independent role in society. Each child receives personal education and support, including social integration which may include initiatives to rehabilitate them with their own families or find adoptive or foster families. Specialist therapeutic and development programmes are in place for children with disabilities, dependent on specific needs.
Although obviously loved and cared for at the orphanage, local funding is limited and opportunities for such projects like a fitness room usually remain a dream. TACC are delighted to be able to support this organization and to transform the dream into a reality.
Remember EVERY penny we raise goes towards supporting kids here at home or overseas in the counties in which our national team plays.
