Janina Ochojska

Janina Ochojska is President of the Polish Humanitarian Organization (PHO) which she founded in 1994, following a trip to war-torn Bosnia with a French humanitarian convoy. PHO was the first such organization created in Eastern Europe to help victims of war, natural disasters and severe poverty in, among other places, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq. It also runs aid programs to help children in need in Poland. For her work, Ochojska has received several awards, including, in 1993, the European Woman of the Year title from the European Commission. She writes frequently about humanitarian issues.
