Throughout this period the organization provided a wide variety of services to the vulnerable community including medical treatment, shelter for the homeless, legal aid, emergency aid in the form of food and clothing, as well as unemployment and financial assistance, including loans. The organization's central headquarters in Warsaw coordinated with regional offices for their activities.
