Razvi Hussaini: Care a Mom Program

For the first time in the history of Poland, a foreigner who lives in Poland has adopted a Polish lonely helpless woman as his mom.

To celebrate the friendship between India and Poland, each year since 2009, the first Sunday of February is being celebrated as Indo-Polish Friendship Day. The initiative had been taken by Indo Polish Friendship Association (IPFA) which was founded by Mr. Razvi Hussaini.

On 5th February 2012, during Indo Polish Friendship day, Mr. Razvi Hussaini adopted Ms. Alicja Pawalec as his mother.

Ms. Alicja Pawalac is in her sixties. Her husband passed away few years ago and her son moved out of the house when he turned 18 and he hasn’t contacted her since then. She moves around on a wheelchair as her legs were amputated.  She has recently had prosthetic legs fitted, but she is not used to using them yet.  She lives alone and doesn’t usually have anyone to look after her, except occasionally the neighbors. She goes for shopping on her wheel chair, cooks food on her own and does all the house works by herself. As her financial capacity is not strong enough to support her basic needs, she is also living in a very poor condition.

Mr. Razvi Hussaini, chairman of Promote-biz and the founder of IPFA, is from India who lives in Warsaw, Poland. According to him, “Mother is one who nurtures you in her womb for nine months and brings you forth to enjoy the supreme blessing on earth, called Life. Mother is one who guides you through your infancy and turns the soft, helpless creature to the powerful and successful YOU. She is the guardian angel protecting you and supporting you, feeling for you and serving you silently always with a smile on her face. She prides herself watching you grow and provides you a shoulder to cry on whenever you need. She is every child’s best friend. But unfortunately when children grow up, they fly away from the mother. Many of them don’t even visit the mother often and sometimes, mother leaves her last breath being alone! I constantly come across older ladies in the streets of Warsaw, whose eyes were strained by sadness. I have tried to speak with few of them. Of course not all but very few of them have shared their stories with me. They have told me, how they were happy when they gave birth to a child and how lonely they feel now when that child grew and left them alone! Under my flat, there’s a medical shop. Every day when I leave my flat, I see many older ladies, crawling towards medical shop. This is probably because they have no one to help them to buy medicines. Where are their children? Many older ladies are living in the Old age homes. Why? What happened to their house? I visited recently to an old age home and had a talk with one lady. She said she has one daughter and two sons, all of them married. And she also said that she hasn’t seen them since three years! I was astonished to hear that! Even for Christmas or on mother’s day, how come her children forgot about her!”

 

Hence he has started a program under the title, “Care a Mom”.

“Care a mom is just a very simple program, where foreigners living in Poland can consider one older lady from the old age home or who is living alone helpless with no one to support, as a mom. From the moment one accepts her as a mom, he can show his love and give her all happiness that she expects to get from her son. If each and every foreigner living in Poland accepts to have one Polish mom, then there will be no mother left alone in Poland! ”

 

While Mr. Razvi hussaini adopted Ms. Alicja Pawalec, people (both foreigners and Polish people) greeted this idea with tears of happiness rolling down their cheeks. “Care a Mom” program has been highly appreciated by many other non profitable organizations that help old people. Mr. Razvi hussaini is on process of organizing an event, where 10 foreigners are going to adopt 10 Polish old women as their mom.

  • To wstyd, że opieką starszych ludzi z litości zajmują się obcokrajowcy.
    Wstyd dla naszego społeczeństwa, które w pogoni za dobrami materialnymi porzuca dzieci czy schorowanych rodziców. Zjawisko to nasila się od czasów masowej emigracji „za chlebem” ,a może po prostu za chęcią zaimponowania sąsiadom samochodem z żółtą rejestracją i kierownicą z prawej strony ?

    Inicjatywa szlachetna, jednak czuję jakąś sprzeczność w tym wszystkim.
    Być może rozkopuję mrowisko, ale ile litość, współczucie i pomoc ma wspólnego z miłością do biologicznego czy nawet przybranego (lecz w dzieciństwie) rodziciela ?
    Myślę, że to pewna impotencja języka angielskiego w wyrażaniu myśli sprawia, że nie do końca (lub źle) rozumiem intencje autora.
    Zastanawia mnie też co sprawia, że obcokrajowcy czują potrzebę opieki nad pozbawionymi jej starszymi osobami.
    Czy szokuje ich brak szacunku dla starszych ludzi w Polsce ?
    Czy wynika to z jakiegoś nakazu religijnego ? W rozmowie z pomagającymi katolikami wywnioskowałem, że znaczna ich część pomaga w oczekiwaniu na życie wieczne, więc jednak jest to powód czysto egoistyczny.

    Zastanawiająca jest dla mnie wreszcie forma artykułu.
    Autorem jest (jak widać na samym dole) pan Razvi Hussaini, więc jeśli tak, to czemu pisze On o własnej postaci w trzeciej osobie ?
