There are at least 330 thousand children in different parts of Poland that desperately need nutrition support, but the child nutrition program is carried out only in several places in Poland. Information based on application forms sent to us by school principals, helps us decide which schools qualify for help.(…)
The Polish Humanitarian Organization (Polska Akcja Humanitarna) began the child nutrition program in 1996 in regions where state collective farms were located during the communism period. As a result of Poland’s economic changes in the last fifteen years collective farms were shut down, leaving many families unprepared to deal with the new socioeconomic situation. The Polish countryside has had the most difficulty in adjusting to the changes. Farms in these regions are very small and very underdeveloped, the farming culture is low and there is a huge unemployment rate (in some areas peaking at 90%).
