Dear friends and visitors of Expats.cz,
The winter is particuarly fierce this year and so far 16 people have died from the cold weather, particularly the homeless of Prague.
Expats.cz would like to start the ball rolling this year by donating 5,000 KC to a fund for the homeless community and to support those running the tents in Letna at the moment, which are overflowing with homeless looking for a place to eat, sleep and stay out of this bitter weather.

Request from Rita Flamini:
I have 9 ladies ready to give blankets and sandwiches to the people at Letna, but I do not speak Czech! Can a Czech <> English speaker, kindly spare us some time so we may find out what the situation is and to give our support - this is the only thing that stands in our way. Please call Rita : 606 487436
Five heated army tents have been erected on Prague's Letna Plain to give homeless people temporary shelter in the current freezing weather. The cold has already killed 16 people in the Czech Republic. Asylum centres are overflowing and an estimated 100 to 200 people are still out in the cold. The tent-town for the homeless will provide shelter for over 100 people as well as a hot meal for anyone who turns up. It will remain in place for as long
