United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in the Czech Republic

The UNHCR was opened in 1992 in connection with the Czech Republic’s accession to the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. The main objective of UNHCR in the Czech Republic is to support the construction of a comprehensive, sustainable and independent asylum system that will enable the state to consider an application for international protection in accordance with recognised standards and international law. It does so through its own programmes in the field of legal advice and awareness raising activities and through supporting the programmes of NGOs.

Czech Committee for United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) 

UNICEF (UN Children’s Emergency Fund) operates in over 150 countries, helping children to survive and improving their living conditions by providing health care, nutrition, clean water and sanitation, education and protection from the risks of HIV / AIDS, violence and other abuses. The largest part of the aid goes to those parts of the world where the situation is gravest for children – the poorest countries are in areas affected by war or natural disaster. In developed countries such as the Czech Republic, UNICEF acts through the national committees, whose role is to promote the fulfilment of children’s rights and raise funds for assistance programmes. UNICEF’s work is funded entirely by voluntary contributions from the sale of greeting cards and giftware.
