Caritas Czech Republic Partners with UNICEF to Support Children and Mothers Health

After the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, UNICEF Georgia and Caritas Czech Republic implemented a project aiming to ensure the continuity of maternal and child health services during the pandemic. Even though the project significantly improved the knowledge of primary healthcare (PHC) specialists in the management of children and mothers health, some gaps still needed to be addressed. With a new project financially supported by the USAID, we will work on the improvement of quality of child health services through practice facilitation and expert consultation provided to the PHC practitioners, as well as improve clinical protocols to support hospitals and train hospital staff in their use.

Best of 2021 in Caritas Czech Republic in Georgia

The year 2021 was challenging – the COVID-19 pandemic pressured the health care system, economic stagnation and inflation deepened, and our lives were negatively affected by restrained inter-personal contracts due to the pandemic regulations. In such situation, however, the needs for humanitarian aid and development cooperation increase, and thus the work of Caritas Czech Republic has become much more indispensable. Seeing it from this point of view, the year 2021 was very successful for Caritas Czech Republic in Georgia, as we could provide more of needed assistance than in any other year before. Thanks to our donors, we were able to run a total of 14 individual projects with an overall yearly budget slightly below two million Euro, and be active in four priority sectors – health care, social protection, rural development, and environmental protection.
