Experience with local charities in Poland?

I'm planning on heading on another rally later this year, and we're thinking about donating some of the money raised to a local charity (the rest going to MSF). Does anyone have experience with a local charity that they could recommend? Any suggestions? Have any of you done volunteer work?

Not big on environmental causes or religious organizations.

What about donating it to the Zoo there? They're about to open the only exhibit of Madagascar in Europe, so I believe. And I'm sure they're involved with conservation work, behind the facade of entertaining visitors to the zoo.

Animals scare me, although a shelter would be a good idea.

is it in Wroclaw?

i'm sure there are many places you'd donate money...
local orphanage or local help center (abuse, addicts etc)...

Local is just small. The location doesn't really matter. I'm expecting it to be a couple thousand euro max, so a small local charity would probably see the most impact. Most of the degenerates that I spend time with give money to the big boys and that's about it.

i used to work as a social worker in Krakow and i was familiar with charities there...
I'd say that the place which needed most money was a local center for abused mothers with children...
i think, you should go to the local MOPS and they will give all the info you need and the list of charities...

Its what brought me to Poland in the first place...on route to Belarus to help kids sick from the Chernobyl accident...

Later i wound up coming to Poland twice a year to bring truckloads of stuff to a kids home near Lobez....

I also got involved in a homeless organisation in the same town....
