"Tell me your story"

That’s how Sue Ryder started her meetings with newly-met people. We hope that we will also be able to address you using these words. But before this happens, we will introduce the Foundation to you, tell you about Sue Ryder, show you how we operate. Welcome to the Sue Ryder Foundation website!

A philanthropist, a great friend of Poland

She was a remarkable British charity activist, conducting her activities all over the world. She established an international foundation in tribute to the victims of World War II. Apart from her activity during the war, Sue Ryder helped at least 500 thousand people of over 50 nationalities.

There is a lot to tell about her

It was 1956 when Sue Ryder came to Poland with her mission. She built nursing homes, supported veterans, death camp survivors and many others who needed help. This is how she laid the foundation for her crowning accomplishment, which in 1991 was officially called the Sue Ryder Foundation.
