Description of the event:
The goal of the event was to raise money for MamPomoc organization. That institution wants to open a coffee place in Wrocław especially adapted for families with children suffering from some kind of disability. This will be a place where the parents can speak about their struggles related to their children with other parents and seek advise from professional psychologists while drinking a warm coffee.That advise will be given to them completely for free. In the same time their children will be able to play with toys especially designed to help in their development under the watchful eye of physiotherapists.
During this event that took place in a park our Erasmus students were encouraging children to make decorations and play games with them. Some Erasmus also engaged in painting the childrens faces and show them some chemical experiments. In the same time with the help of people from that organization and ESN members another group of Erasmus students was giving out flyers about this initiative to the parents and collecting money into cans.
