SOCIAL INITIATIVES UNDERTAKEN BY THE EUROPEAN COMPENSATION CENTER
ECC prides itself in being able to help those in need of support. In April of 2008 we launched the ECC for Children Foundation, which operates throughout the country and is among the most active Polish charity organizations.
In accordance with the Act on Public Benefit and Volunteer Work, the status granted to the ECC for Children Foundation will allow those who want to help young accident victims donate 1% of their income taxes to the Foundation. The Foundation is listed on an elite list of the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, among organizations that support persons in a difficult living situation, health and life protection organizations and organizations that offer aid to the handicapped. The Foundation supports, inter alia, the Home for Young Children in Jawor, the Friends of Children Association, Legnica Branch, it finances English courses for those residing in the Children’s Home as well as field trips for those enrolled at the Special Education Schools.
The Foundation also brings individual aid to children with illnesses.
