Help for children – Polsat Foundation

We are here to save the health and the lives of the youngest

Providing aid to children is one of the pillars of our social mission. For nearly 25 years now, while following its mission statement “We are here to save the health and the lives of the youngest,” Polsat Foundation has been making incessant efforts to improve the health situation of the youngest patients in Poland.

The Foundation’s current activities also include numerous ecological initiatives and actions, including Polsat Plus Group’s activities related to fight against smog and the harm it causes. These activities are undertaken via the recently established Clean Poland Program Association.


The superior goal of the Foundation is to support those who are most in need. An illness of a child is for many Polish families not only an emotional drama but also a drama in the financial dimension. Specialized treatment, newest pharmaceuticals, or complex operations mean costs which often exceed the parents’ financial possibilities, while financing by the state healthcare system is for many reasons insufficient. For that reason the Foundation has created a system of quick and effective response to requests for aid. Information received from parents is verified and then their applications are reviewed according to strictly defined criteria.
