Aid despite the risk. Today is World Humanitarian Day

By bringing help, they put their health at risk and can even lose lives. On World Humanitarian Day, we pay special attention to individuals who devote themselves to working for others around the world. Last year alone, 483 humanitarian workers were killed, kidnapped or injured – these are the highest statistics in the history of the rankings conducted so far. It is not only a risk, but also everyday hard work. 2020 exacerbates the difficulties faced by humanitarian workers. On the World Humanitarian Day, we sincerely thank them for their daily work in unusual conditions. #RealLifeHeroes.

There is no school, so there is hunger. PCPM helping in Ethiopia

A meal at Selam Chora was the only one that most students of this Ethiopian school could count on. There was no food at home. Fear of a pandemic forced the Ethiopian authorities to introduce a state of emergency and close all facilities. When it happened, many Ethiopian families lost their last hope. In addition to the fear of a pandemic, the lack of chance for any earnings, every minute people are more and more terrified of hunger increased by the locust plague, which deprives them of any chance to buy the food. We can give them this chance trough na pcpm.org.pl/etiopia.
