Over the past 10 years, we have supported and raised over 30 million Czech Crowns in projects to help older people and have created a service that fills the gap between existing social services. But without you it would not be possible. What did we do for you in the first decade?
Care coordinators within the project “Úvod Without Worries” link lonely older people with home care services that enable them to live at home, but which the older people themselves do not know or can ask for themselves. The aim of this project is to provide a dignified life for older people in their own home as long as possible. They helped thousands of older people who would otherwise have to leave early. As part of a volunteer program for older people, we have linked dozens of older people with volunteers to support intergenerational understanding and dialogue while helping lonely older people.
We also carried out several awareness-raising campaigns to raise public awareness of the aging of the population, demographic change and the position of older people in society. Our other campaigns have responded to the challenges of older people issues, such as the Nutrition of older people, Ageism, Abuse or the Problem of Loneliness and Gender Discrimination, which is closely linked to the financial needs of the elderly.
The Foundation also supported the creation of documents that work on the subject of old age, which have been greatly appreciated by both the professional and public; which has ultimately led to awareness and positive change of legislation for public opinion on the subject. An example of this could be “Smudges” about the unfair practices of doorstep sellers, “Sam” about Lube Skorep, etc.
We regularly organize “round tables” and professional conferences to share experiences among home care professionals. Since 2015, she has been actively working with the UN. The Beauty of Help Foundation was the first non-profit organization in the Czech Republic to present the topic of helping older people and their activities at the UN.
That it is not a little? Thanks especially to you. Fans, donors, volunteers, former, current and future contributors. We look forward to the next 10 years with you!
