Join the charity campaign “Zero Zalamki = Never Give Up!”

AIESEC’s 68th International Congress supports also the charity campaign “Zero Zalamki = Never Give Up!” in order to help one of the AIESEC’s member Michał Zylinski.

On March 8th Michal Zylinski had a horrible snowboarding accident, which resulted in damaging his spinal cord (level C7) and becoming paralyzed from his chest all the way down to his feet, including partial weakening of Michał hands’ functionality. The doctors’ prognosis was: “wheelchair for the rest of his life”. However, Michał believes he still can be happy and capable of doing great things, set up an amazing family and help his local communities to have a better future through sport and personal development.

You can still support Michał via: Generosity .
