We restore a smile in an illness

The Prometheus Foundation helps and supports with advice the elderly, the poor, the sick, the lonely and the homeless, i.e. those Seniors who are most cruelly affected by their fate.

The Prometheus for Seniors Foundation helps throughout the year. Our charges contact us every month for help in purchasing medicines and paying the current apartment bills.

Providing them with a decent old age and providing for their basic life needs is no blessing or grace, but a duty
society, that is us, all citizens, and most of all the government and all organs of state and local government.

Unfortunately, this help does not reach everyone or is often insufficient, given the enormous costs of maintenance, treatment and rehabilitation that our pupils incur on a daily basis. Our activities consist in finding and helping those people who, for reasons beyond their control - serious chronic diseases, rising costs of living,
medicines and food - found themselves in an extremely difficult situation.

Foundation history

The “Prometeusz dla Seniorów” Foundation established by Albert Światopełk-Czetwertyński by notarial deed on 21 July 2010, became a legal entity when it was registered in the National Court Register in 2011.

The objectives of the Foundation and the methods employed to achieve them, its assets and revenues and its authorities are defined in the Statue of the Foundation.

The Światopełk-Czetwertyńskis are one of the oldest aristocratic families, tracing their ancestry back to a very remote past. The Czetwertyńskis, a family of Ruthenian princes, are the direct descendants of Ruryk, a legendary ruler of Kiev in the 9th century.

Over the centuries, the Czetwertyńskis produced many outstanding and prominent individuals. One such eminent representative of the family was prince Włodzimierz (1837–1918), a great patriot exiled to Siberia, political and social activist, protector of Uniates from Podlasie persecuted by the tsarist government, and president of the Warsaw Charitable Society. In all his undertakings, particularly those connected with his charitable work, he was actively supported by his wife, princess Maria née countess Uruska (1853–1931).

To preserve the memory of their noble life and extraordinary achievements, the great-grandson of Maria and Włodzimierz, prince Albert Światopełk-Czetwertyński, decided to dedicate the “Prometeusz dla Seniorów” Foundation to them.

Let their life’s work serve as inspiration and model for all who understand and feel what an important, even inalienable part of humanity is to help those who need help most.
