Caritas of the Archdiocese of Prague

Following the principals of Christian morality, we help those in need irrespective of their race, religious affiliations, or political views.

We provide assistance to those who have found themselves in a life burdening situation, or in the margin of society – namely parents (mothers and their children), the handicapped, seniors, the homeless, orphans, victims of human trafficing, victims of domestic violence, and migrants. One of the most significant areas where Caritas Prague provides services, includes humanitarian and development aid and cooperation. The least fortunate children, families, and communities are supported in terms of education, healthcare and local development, so that they can one day reach and sustain a reasonable quality of life without international intervention.
