The Space with Love Foundation was established in 2020 (KRS: 0000879008). He deals with
an innovative approach to designing public space mainly in the context of the needs of cancer patients. It implements projects in accordance with the principles of biophiling design
and the psychology of architecture.
The Space with Love Foundation takes steps to improve the hospital space so that it have a beneficial effect on the well-being and health of cancer patients. We have already completed a project of renovation of two rooms at the Mazovian Cancer Center (Mazowieckie Centrum Onkologii) in Wieliszew.
Where does our motivation come from? How did it start ?:
Olga Strużyna- Mazurkiewicz, President and founder of the Space With Love Foundation:
“My grandmother Roma was sentenced. Suddenly. The cancer had attacked two organs. It lasted several months. At the beginning, Grandma was in our family home. “Oluńcia, when I get home, I’ll clean up, I’ll do a renovation,” she said. She did not give up until the end. Unfortunately, she never returned there. I sat with her in one of the hospitals in Warsaw in the corridor, hugging her so that it would hurt 2 less. As soon as she saw me, she asked for a yellow blanket. The day before, it had been left in the emergency room and I couldn’t move to pick him up. After some time my mother brought it. Yellow, warm-shaded blanket, nice in touch. Why did she want it so much? It was clean, fragrant, soft and in a beautiful upbeat color. Perhaps it encouraged her in these difficult times? I know one thing: grandma wanted to live. She expressed it in the will of control over her apartment and in possession of accessories which made her feel safe and were her connection with home and life.
Grandma is no longer with us, but there are thousands of patients in the wards who are longing for home, for their beloved ones, for beautiful colors and sounds of nature. We want to bring all of it closer to them by renovating the hospital interiors. It can only be done with your help, which I am asking for.”.
