These events have the aim of raising funds for running the foundation, and also fulfil an important role in integrating people from the world of business, art and culture, and aristocracy in joint charity activities to the benefit of those in need.
Our obligations towards our hitherto charges (children and youth) have meant that appointing the new foundation – Fundacja Joanny Radziwiłł Opiekuńcze Skrzydła – which, from 1 September 2016, took over the hitherto activities of the Św. Jana Jerozolimskiego Foundation – was not only necessary, but also the result of the great need for the Foundation’s team, as well as our honorary Ambassadors, volunteers and local society to act independently.
FOR THEIR WORK WITH CHILDREN AND YOUTH, JOANNA RADZIWIŁŁ AND MAGDALENA KRYŃSKA HAVE RECEIVED MANY PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS AND PRIZES, INCLUDING FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND, THE POLISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, THE POLISH NATIONAL UNICEF COMMITTEE, THE FOUNDATION IN SUPPORT OF LOCAL DEMOCRACY, THE FOUNDATION OF ST.
