Assistance to children
The Institute of Psychology of the Jagiellonian University is committed to helping Ukrainian children by joining aid campaigns addressed to them. One concerns children from a Ukrainian orphanage who came to Krakow. The second is to help children with the autism spectrum who will reach our city with their families. We are sure that our institute will be able to do a lot of good for them.
