PLN 18, about 300 calories. At this price we managed to find the most expensive doughnut in Warsaw today, for which a long queue is already forming. A queue for the sweet bun, a symbol of the end of the carnival and the beginning of Lent. A time of reconciliation and modesty.
Is PLN 18 a lot or a little?
For us, it is the price of an expensive craving. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, it is an amount that can decide the life of a child. It is PLN 18, or even PLN 15, which allows for an entire day of nutritional therapy and educates parents about nutrition, farming and animal husbandry.
We would like to persuade you to do something a little bit crazy. That this doughnut, which we will all forget in a moment, becomes instead a therapeutic meal for one of the children in our nutrition centre in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We guarantee that it will be an unforgettable day for them.
We dream of this sweet symbol going hand in hand with real help for those who could only dream of even the cheapest doughnut and those 300 calories today. To Joseline, who is still struggling with the effects of malnutrition. To Huruma, whose mother we continue to feed so that she has food for her son. To the hundreds of children whose parents are begging us for help while their farmland, hitherto able to feed their entire family, is being destroyed by the rebellion.
Take a look at GoodWorks 24/7 and donate PLN 3, 5, maybe 15 today to those who have nothing. Create a new tradition with us – a truly Good Thursday!
