Wojciech Falkowski has been engaged in helping children for many years. Between 2000-2010, as Member of the Lions Club, he sponsored and actively participated in organizing different forms of support for hospitals, orphanages and day-care centers.
Between 2003-2004, he took over the presidency of the Club and, together with the authorities of Gdańsk, established “Dom NA Skraju”, a day-care center for poor children. After receiving an old garage from the local authorities, the Lions Club transformed it into a real day-care center with a toilet and a place to prepare something to eat. The initiative cost about PLN 100,000. And, it has turned out to be a very successful investment!
