Family poverty: Jana’s story

Jana is a young woman from west Bohemia. She had a dream of working as a chef in a spa hotel, so she went to a college specialised in chef trainings. At the time, Jana met a partner on a social website. He was funny and she liked him a lot. Things moved on very quickly and they married four months after they first met. Very soon after the wedding their first daughter was born and later on a son with mental health problems.

Give a Christmas gift to victims of domestic violence

Give a gift this Christmas, not only to your own loved ones, but also to an unknown battered woman. They live among us with hidden pain and suffering. They cannot enjoy a beautiful and merry Christmas. From their close ones they only receive wounds to their body and spirit, never gifts.

Against fear and humiliation. Caritas opens new center to assist homeless women.

The streets of this big city are dangerous at night. A woman might prefer to ask a male chaperone to walk with her if she finds herself faced with the prospect of returning home through dark and deserted streets in the small hours of the night. But not everyone has a home to return to. In Prague alone, at least 800 women are living on the street. We met with some of them at the newly-opened women-only daytime center on Žitná Street – the only one of its kind in the Czech Republic.

Agel Foundation accepts patronage of the Gloria Shelter Home

On Wednesday, October 5, 2016, the Agel Foundation graciously agreed to act as patron for the Gloria Shelter Home.

However, these shelters would not be able to do their good work without the kind support of donors.
