I want to help – financially

The amount of gathered financial resources for helping Martha is updated daily.

We thank very much for financial support.

Providing effective and professional help for Martha, one we would like to provide, both in Ireland as in Strasburg, involves great financial costs.

All the time, Martha’s family and friends, bear every financial cost themselves.
They do as much as they can, and as much as financial resources allow them to.

We were resisting against fundraising and we do not have any experience in this. We don’t want to impose ouorself with fundraising.
But we are also convinced, that creating a specal fund will have a positive influence on the quality and effectiveness of helping Martha.

Gathered resources we would like to use for professional solicitor (now it is still public solicitor), special psychological and language opinions, translations, possible media activities or other actions necessary for providing effective help for Martha.

Martha’s family lives in Poland, but isn’t raising money for their monthly flights and stays in Ireland.
They visit Ireland only to support Martha, but they treat this as their family duty, and a pleasure of contacting with Martha, and they don’t raise any funds for this purpose.
