Donors supported the Three Kings’ Collection with almost CZK 81,5. The money is already helping. Tha

Every coin of this year’s Three Kings’ Collection was counted. The 21st year has reached CZK 81,476,000. That is a considerable amount. The traditional carolling had to leave out the main aspect: the carollers, due to the epidemiological situation. It was possible to contribute to the Collection only online or through the “static moneyboxes”. The collected money is no longer stored on the account, but is already helping all over the country those in need, who found themselves in a difficult situation due to the covid-19 epidemic as well.

The Three King’s moneyboxes unsealed – donors supported the collection with 80 million. Thank you!

The donations from the Three King’s moneyboxes have been counted and its total amount reached 52,3 million. The online carolling on the website of the collection brought another almost 24 million and over 4 million came through generous donor DMS. In total, this year’s Three Kings Collection brought 80,3 million for those in need. Even though the last year’s collection was by 50 million higher, such a good outcome was not expected this year. The epidemiological situation changed the form of the traditional collection – the carollers could not go into the streets. You can still support the collection online until the end of April by DMS or yearly by bank transfer.

The situation from Caritas’ point of view: the poor in the Czech Republic will not enjoy their right

The social gap is opening dangerously in the Czech Republic. While society is getting richer, we are seeing more poor and homeless people because there is no affordable housing for them. The subsistence level is likely to be increased this year after eight years. How do people who have run into trouble find their way back? Caritas presents an analysis of the situation of poor families and individuals, elderly and homeless people, and proposes a series of measures without which the lives of poor people will not improve.

Caritas new survey: twenty per cent of young people are at risk of poverty

To take a closer look at young people at risk of poverty and their biggest problems, as well as to find out how true the received ideas of poverty are, this was the basic motivation to prepare the survey organised by Caritas Czech Republic and the Czech Bishops’ Conference together with the firm Median. It confirmed that for young people, the issues of housing, indebtedness and access to employment are the most serious problems.
