“I am a working woman, not afraid of any kind of job”. This phrase repeated many times by Irena Kwiatkowska in a Polish TV series ‘Forty’ summarizes my career. I was a medical lab technician, an English teacher, a translator and now I’m a Mom, dividing my time between home and work. All these paths always led in the direction of people in need of help, and as much as I could I was there to offer my hand. This is also now in the case of my work as a Board Member and a volunteer. It gives me immense joy and a lot of satisfaction when I learn that our relatively small group gives children a second chance at life.
