  • Diakonie Center: Diakonie supports families of children with mental, physical or multiple disabilities. Funds raised will be invested in garden renovations.
  • Beroun Children’s Home: Beroun is a residential home for complex needs children. Our contributions will fund horseriding lessons, swimming lessons, pet therapy, music therapy and trips to the salt caves.
  • Skiing for the Disabled: This year we will sponsor ski courses for disabled children.
  • Pink Crocodile School Prague: Pink Crocodile helps complex needs children. We will pay for physiotherapy at school.
  • Dedina Center: Dedina offers a support system for adults with impaired vision. We will continue to support a program aimed at fostering greater independence.
  • Motol ORL / Broken Silence Foundation: Broken Silence supports deaf children after their cochlear implant surgery. Funds raised will contribute to the purchase of specialist surgical equipment. We will also continue to support a program to help children after their cochlear implant surgery.

We are extremely grateful for all donations and look forward to another successful year working with our charities to ensure that your money is put to good use. You can keep in touch with the projects that we support through our blog and through Facebook.
