MEDEVAC Project

MEDEVAC project is a program that brings physically handicapped patients-primarily children-in a life threatening state to the Czech Republic to receive treatment if they were unable to get it in their home country.The program is financed by the Ministry of Interior Czech Republic, which is partially provided by Caritas Prague.

Thus far, MEDEVAC Project has assisted children from Pakistan, Iraq, Kosovo, Georgia, and Cambodia. Most of these children were either born with their physical disability, had a heart defect, or were sustaining injuries from war conflicts or natural disasters.

The Migration Center has taken part in the MEDEVAC Project since 2006.
