Child Protection and Activism in Poland

The Foundation ‘Nie lękajcie się “ meaning “Have No Fear”, is an offspring of the Victims of Priests Movement. It was thanks to its founder – Wincenty Szymański- that we met and accomplished a thing once thought to be impossible. It was from his initiative that the first meeting of the victims of the pedophile priests in Poland took place. Thanks to him we overcame our fear and gained courage to speak up and stand up for ourselves. Each day we take one step, then another.
