Humanitarian aid centre

Humanitarian aid centre of Diocesan Charity Ostrava-Opava (SHP) was settled up in February 2005. Head of the humanitarian aid center is subsidiary member of the director of Diocesan Charity Ostrava-Opava (DCHOO).

SHP DCHOO assumed responsibility for whole humanitarian aid activities and projects in western part of Ukraine, which were realized by volunteers so far and mainly for the project called "Children sponsorship" administrated by Caritas sv.Alexandra in Ostrava. Recently we organize these projects in Ukraine: Children sponsorship, Home for restful life in Usť Čorna, Dignified life, Charitable and pastoral center Tjačiv and Domiciliary service in Tjačiv. These all projects were realized in cooperation with Greece catholic parish Tjačiv; since last year, when Blahodyjnyj fond Oleksandra Chiry in Tjačiv was set up, this organization has become our Ukraine's partner.

Beside these fundamental projects SHP DCHOO has co-operated and will be co-operating on providing help to the needed people in Ukraine together with the other Ukraine's approved bodies (Blahodyjnyj fond Caritas Minaj, Mukačevska Greece catholic eparchy, Congregation helpers of God and PM from Matara Dubove, Congregation helpers PM Usť Čorna). It is also responsible for the delivery of humanitarian aid help into this area and organizes brigade-work of Czech volunteers. It does not mean that all projects and activities have been concentrating only on the financial or material help, but the biggest emphasis insists on the development and social aspect of the help.
In the framework of our own activities SHP is also concerned in the work activities of Humanitarian committee Caritas Czech Republic.
