How we help

Our mission is to help people in difficult social situations, people with disabilities and long-term illnesses, the dying, victims of domestic violence, and people stricken by natural disasters and war conflicts, both in the Czech Republic and abroad. In case of natural disasters and catastrophes, we operate as a part of the Integrated Rescue System. We push for legislative changes to create a more just world. We protect the rights and dignity of each and every person, regardless of race or religion.
