Welcome to Refugee Info Czechia
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is a global non-profit organization providing humanitarian and development assistance. Founded in 1933 on the initiative of Albert Einstein, it was originally named the International Association for Aid. The IRC offers immediate and long-term assistance worldwide, not only to refugees but also to individuals forced to relocate due to war, persecution, or natural disasters.
In collaboration with IRC, the non-governmental non-profit organization Slovo 21, which has been dedicated to helping Roma, and foreigners (including refugees and asylum seekers), launched the Refugee Info Czechia project on December 15, 2022.
We're Here to Support You
At the beginning of this year, we conducted both online and offline surveys to identify the challenges and unanswered questions faced by refugees living in the Czech Republic. We reached out to nearly 600 individuals to gather as much information as possible. Based on the survey results, which helped pinpoint the needs of newcomers from Ukraine, we've compiled a comprehensive list of organizations and integration centers operating in the Czech Republic. These organizations provide free assistance and other services tailored specifically to you, and you can easily locate them on our service map.
Explore Our Interactive Service Map
Our objective was to create a simple and user-friendly interactive platform for newly arrived Roma and Ukrainians who have come to the Czech Republic due to the conflict. Using the service map and its features, anyone can easily find out whom to contact, where to go, and when to address everyday issues. You can filter services based on categories or regions where you are staying.
What Information Will I Find on the Website?
Our project aims to help you rebuild the stable foundations of your life that you may have lost. On the czechia.refugee.info website, you will discover an interactive service map and articles with comprehensive information on:
