The Prime Minister emphasised that Szlachetna Paczka is a wonderful initiative, essential for all those in need. For many people who live in solitude, in want, this outstretched arm is absolutely fundamental, he said.

 

This campaign is in line with the idea of wise aid. It is not only material aid but, primarily, an attempt at establishing interpersonal relations. This hope is both literal and metaphorical – it is both presents and gifts of the heart, conversations, reaching out to other people, stressed Mateusz Morawiecki.

Szlachetna Paczka has been operating for 18 years now, and the total value of the aid provided exceeded PLN 339 million. Its aim is to help people in need - the elderly, the desiabled, large families. Thanks to the donors and volunteers who get to know their stories, people in need receive packages corresponding to their individual needs right before Christmas.

From 16 November to 6 December, donors from all over Poland can select families to whom they will provide dedicated aid. People who cannot prepare a package can support the project by making a financial contribution.
