Programs of work with migrants

Particular aid for migrant and refugee families and individuals

Diaconia cooperates with migrant and refugee families and individuals who found their new home in Czech Republic. Often, they are single mothers with children or those with a problem with residence status and resulting numerous problems, whether financial or work-related. We provide material aid, but also assistance with dealing with authorities, schools, doctors, job search, and accommodation. Thereat, we use the network of our evangelical congregations or the Diaconia ECCB Centres.

Our assistance aims to help the families to become independent as soon as possible, to help the parents to obtain a job and provide for the family.

Assistance to the evangelical churches in integration of refugees

We participate in meetings and discussions in churches that are interested in the migration and refugee question. If there are some congregations or groups that want to actively participate in helping the refugees or to take care directly for some of the refugee families, we provide relevant information in this area. We also mediate meetings with people who work with the refugees directly and who can cooperate further with the churches on the integration.
