Best of 2021 in Caritas Czech Republic in Georgia

The year 2021 was challenging – the COVID-19 pandemic pressured the health care system, economic stagnation and inflation deepened, and our lives were negatively affected by restrained inter-personal contracts due to the pandemic regulations. In such situation, however, the needs for humanitarian aid and development cooperation increase, and thus the work of Caritas Czech Republic has become much more indispensable.

Thanks to our donors, we were able to run a total of 14 individual projects with an overall yearly budget slightly below two million Euro, and be active in four priority sectors – health care, social protection, rural development, and environmental protection.
