Raport January to June 2018

Dear Friends,

Thank you for the next time you have been with us. We would not achieve so much without your prayers and financial support.
It is out joy to inform you that from January to June 2018 we managed to reach about 2750 children with the message of the “Gate of Hope – Petach Tikva” Foundation! We want to thank the Lord for it.
The lessons of the Foundation took place in primary schools of the Silesian province in the following towns: Kończyce, Nierodzim, Hażlach, Wisła, Brenna, Kończyce Małe, Chybie – Zarzecze, Pierściec, Wieszczęta, Skoczów, Kiczyce, Chybie Mnich, Bielany, Ruptawa, Cisownica, Bażanowice, Wapienica, Czechowice, Istebna, Cieszyn, Zebrzydowice.

During the classes we tell the pupils real-life stories of Jewish children who survived the Holocaust in order to teach them sensitivity to the needs and harm of another human being, acceptance and respect for oneself and others. By telling short real-life stories we try to prevent all kinds of prejudice and stereotypes. We want to see changes in attitudes of young generation towards Polish and Jewish history. Our aim is education and on this foundation we would like to build mutual understanding, respect and friendliness.

And here is one of the opinions of the teachers:
”The lecture and presentation by Mrs Barbara Bałon were amazing, demonstrated in a remarkable way, with great commitment, empathy and feeling. We listened to the story with bated breath. Thank you very much.” – Ms Aleksandra

If you think the message of the Foundation is right and necessary, we will be deeply grateful for your financial support – depending on your resources.
Thank you very much for every financial gift. We will be also deeply grateful if you recommend our Foundation to other people who would be willing to support this project.

For the time of summer leisure we wish you joyful experience and then warm holiday memories. May the Lord accompany you on your holiday paths and may He bless you abundantly.

With gratitude
Barbara Bałon
