Our Projects

The Coen Foundation initiates projects to improve the situation of people, and especially children, in need.

Surgery for Mariana

Mariana is the daughter of Natalia. One day Mariana was diagnosed with hypothalamic hamartoma. A crowdfunding was opened for Mariana’s treatment in Japan.

Grosso Moda and its employees raised enough money for Mariana and Natalia to travel to Japan and realize the life-saving operation. Another € 10.000 was donated by Grosso Moda for Mariana and her family.

Mariana had surgery in Japan and according to the doctors, the surgery was successful. Mariana is back home again and will have to recover further on her way to a healthy and happy future.

Natalia and Marian are enormously grateful to the Coen Foundation for their support.

The celebration of the return of the birds

In Lithuania, in March we have a day symbolizing the flight of birds. It is believed that on this day, 40 species of birds that have wintered abroad have already returned. This date is associated with a mass flight of birds.
To commemorate that day – nesting boxes are made in Lithuania.
The children of our center made a nesting box this year on their own as well! They sawed, hewed, twisted, painted themselves, and look at the ‘house’ that is waiting for its residents! 💚

Community officer visit

Community officer spoke about safe behavior on the street, on the internet, about bulling.
At the end of the visit, children presented a picture made by their own hands (burnt). All experiences are educational and needed. We are grateful for the visit!

Easter 2024

Spring is here, and at our Children’s Day Center, we’re eagerly preparing for Easter!
We’ve been busy painting eggs in all colors of the rainbow, rolling them down hills for a bit of fun, and even cooking up some delicious treats. But the best part? Sharing these joyful moments with our amazing mothers! It’s been an afternoon filled with laughter, creativity, and love. Wishing everyone a happy Easter season!
