Caritas Czech Republic Handed Over Family-Type Homes to the State Care Agency

Caritas Czech Republic has been addressing the disability issue since its mission’s establishment in Georgia. In 2020, our organization launched four-year project that aims to contribute to the deinstitutionalization of large boarding institutions by supporting the Government of Georgia with various legislative initiatives and helping persons with disabilities (PwDs) in starting an independent life. One of the main successes of the project so far was the handover of two family-type homes to the State Care Agency that are intended for setting up small residential services for the beneficiaries currently living in large boarding homes. In the following year and half, additional four houses will be completed and given to State Care Agency.

Caritas Czech Republic launches DG ECHO-funded project to help refugees in Moldova

Moldova, the poorest country in Europe, has received the largest number of refugees per capita since the start of the war in Ukraine. Although the country welcomed refugees with open arms, it soon reached the limits of its capacity. Caritas Czech Republic launched a project in Moldova to help vulnerable refugees. In total, we will support over 200,000 refugees, relieving the overburdened Moldovan state.
