Our history

In the 90s a French expatriate, Veronique Tavernier meets the Sisters of Cluny in Lublin and decides to help them as much as she can during the duration of her stay in Poland. In 1995, Isabelle Perrin takes over and develops a framework to structure this help. Entraide is born; initially within Varsovie Accueil. At the time clothes and toys are collected and redistributed to a few centres.
With the years and the continuous growth of the expat community, donations both from private individuals and companies increase. Entraide develops the scope of its activities, separates from Varsovie Accueil and becomes an independent entity Fundacja Entraide.

In 2010 two members of Fundacja Entraide, who are still active within the charity, were awarded the (French) National Order of merit in recognition for their work
Year after the year Fundacja Entraide has developed and financially supported many projects helping the poor, the homeless, the sick, the elderly, the orphans as well as vulnerable families and youth.

We are grateful for all help, whether a financial donation, a gift in kind or any other.
