100 YEARS OF HISTORY
The origins of Caritas Czech Republic date back to the end of the First World War and the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It grew from below: Caritas organisations were established in several places at the same time. In June 1918, for example, the Union of Catholic Charities in the Kingdom of Bohemia was founded at the instigation of Archbishop Paul Huyn of Prague. In 1922, the creation of Caritas network was completed, when the Union of Caritas in Olomouc and Brno was founded.
