Vistula supports the only innovative project in Poland
The Goodwill Farm is to be an ecological, intelligent centre equipped with the latest technologies. It is to assist disabled people, for whom parents, due to their old age or disease, are no longer able to provide comprehensive care. The proteges will receive support in their everyday life at the centre. They will have accommodation in family houses for several people and the care of specialists. The project also provides for the creation of a farm – a space for working in the garden, breeding livestock and other activities, adapted to the capabilities of the inhabitants.
