Prague, Czech Republic - In a heartwarming display of solidarity and compassion, the Rotaract Club Prague International recently conducted a remarkable event, bringing a ray of hope to Ukrainian refugee children in the Czech Republic. This event, made possible by the generous financial support of the Rotary Club Prague International, encapsulated the spirit of community service and international fellowship.

The gathering, marked by enthusiasm and a shared commitment to making a difference, saw members of the Rotaract Club Prague come together to prepare and package eight personalized gift sets. These gifts, destined for the hands of young Ukrainian refugees, were not just items but symbols of love, care, and support from a community standing with them in their time of need.

Hleb Tkachenko, the Vice President of the Rotaract Club Prague International, was very happy about the event. It wasn't just fun; it was a manifestation of Rotaract Prague's dedication to service above self. Thanks to the Rotary Club Prague International, Rotaract Prague members were able to turn our compassion into action, providing these children with something to smile about.

Photographs from the meeting, which capture the essence of this charitable endeavor, offer a glimpse into the joy and teamwork that characterized the day. The images depict club members in high spirits, diligently assembling the gift sets, each item carefully selected to bring joy to the young recipients.

This event is not just a one-time gesture but a part of an ongoing commitment by the Rotaract and Rotary Clubs to provide support and solace to those affected by the crisis in Ukraine. It serves as a powerful reminder of the impact that compassionate acts can have, bringing light into the lives of those who need it most.

As the Rotaract Club Prague International continues its efforts, they stand as a beacon of hope, demonstrating the power of community and the enduring spirit of international solidarity.

Our passion for creating positive change constantly drives us forward. As an NGO committed to support communities across the world, for the last three years we have been working tirelessly to make a meaningful impact in the lives of young adults without parents. However, we understand that our vision cannot be realized without the invaluable support of sponsors who share our dedication to making the world a better place.

We are currently seeking sponsors who believe in our mission and are eager to contribute to our initiative Speechless Reconciliation. Speechless Reconciliation is a program for children without parental care in the age 16-21 and give those youngsters opportunities to build understanding and create bridges between themselves and to expand their vision of what it is possible to achieve in their own lives.

At Rotary Club Prague International, we are always on the lookout for inspiring individuals who are making a positive impact in our community. Recently, two of our members, Radka Rajska and Sanan Phutrakul, had the privilege of visiting Karin Genton-L'Epée at Coaching with Horses. This unique organization, located at www.coachingwithhorses.cz, combines the wisdom and intuition of horses with the transformative practice of coaching. Join us as we delve into the incredible work Karin and her team are doing with these magnificent creatures.
🎉✨ Celebrating an Unforgettable Evening of Giving and Joy at the Fundraiser Event! ✨🎉
We are thrilled to share the incredible success of our recent fundraiser event organized by our Club for the Speechless Reconciliation program that took place on June 3, 2023 at the Kaiserštejnský palác on Malá Strana in the heart of Prague. It was a night filled with laughter, heartfelt connections, and an outpouring of generosity.
Today, we have pinned a new member, Glacier! We are very happy to have him on board and look forward to the good and fun we will do and have together.
On 24 February, Russia invaded Ukraine. As a result millions of Ukrainians fled the country and sought a refuge in the neighboring countries, such as Poland, Romania, Moldavia, Slovakia or Czech Republic. The majority of them are women, children, elderly and disabled people. Some of them moved further west in their attempt to seek for a shelter were youngsters and children from organizations such as SOS Children's Villages Ukraine.
In April, we organized a special camp for the youngsters without parents that had to flee Ukraine. Theme of the camp was: "A new beginning for a better future".
On April 17, 2023 we have celebrated 25 years of existence of our Club!
This time, we met in a café Ty Kávo and enjoyed Stand Up Comedy show! We laughed so much that at the end of the show we were not able to speak... :-)
