HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the Czech Republic

For decades HEKS/EPER has maintained close ties with the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren (ECCB). Central to their cooperation is the strengthening of the Church and its welfare and social work. HEKS/EPER supports the ECCB in its work with children and young people. The EKBB works with migrants and refugees who face disadvantages for a variety of reasons. It offers them social support, i.e., help in dealing with Czech authorities, schools, health services, employment agencies, etc. Our help enables them to take the first steps towards becoming integrated into Czech society.
