Summary

At the Pay it Forward Foundation we believe people, who get in a wheelchair as a result of an accident can live independently. We can't let sorrow, loneliness and helplessness ruin their lives.It is important to provide rehabilitation and therapy ASAP. That's why we are creating Janaszkowo Settlement in Poland. The rehabilitation center is situated in the underground of the building. We still need money to provide regular, specialized treatments for over 60 disabled people a year.

Challenge

We've been supporting people with disabilities since 2004. Our regular help is free-of-cost used by over 250 people a year. The number of requests for support is increasing. There is also a growing number of people who get in a wheelchair as a result of an accident. The experience of our wheelchair users shows that the sooner a person starts exercising after an accident, the sooner they will return to functioning. Our tragedy is that we cannot help everyone because we do not have a place for it!

Solution

We made a decision to find a larger building to support people whose disability hinders or prevents independent life. We divided Janaszkowo Settlement into several parts, each has its own specific purpose. In June 2021 we launched the Rehabilitation Centre. Diagnostics, rehabilitation and therapy of children, adolescents and adults take place here every day. We have modern equipment and great specialists. This is the first stage of our investment. The living area will be next.

Long-Term Impact

The lives of many disabled people, who permanently stay at home, is changing in Rehabilitation Center. More than 60 disabled people a year (from the whole country) are diagnosed and get regular and specialized treatments free-of-cost. After a few months of intensive work, many of them return to functioning and start living again. Since the beginning of the Russian agression against Ukraine we've provided rehabilitation for over 20 refugees with themost severe disabilities.
