POLAND: A leading charity has launched a business-sponsored website seeking funds for free meals for the country's poorest schoolchildren. Polish Humanitarian Action distributes free meals to 4,100 children in schools in Poland's unemployment-ravaged eastern and north-eastern regions. By clicking on a puppet surfers add 0.40 zlotys about 7p) to the fund. The head of the organization, Janina Ochojska, launched the aid effort for hungry children in 1998, alarmed by reports of children fainting during classes because they had nothing to eat. The fund needs about 500 zlotys (pound;85) to finance meals for one child for the school year. http:www.pajacyk.pl
