Prague and homeless people
Apr 20, 2007 12:47 PM Filed under News=20

According to the latest census made by social workers and Prague police, =
there are 1.811 homeless people living in Prague. Half of them live on =
the streets, many others in special houses for homeless people. Many =
non-profit organisations (there are more than 250 organisations in =
Prague helping homeless people) claim that the number is much higher.

Prague city and the European Union give about 52 million CZK a year to =
help homeless people in Prague. There is a newly reconstructed ship for =
homeless people in Prague that can be found near Stefanikuv bridge. The =
ship offers 250 beds.

According to Prague councilman Jiri Janecek, Prague will contribute to =
the companies which will employ homeless people 20 % of the salary. =
Homeless people will probably get a special card which will enable them =
to use some services, such as food, medical care, etc. Humanitarian =
organisations, however, protest against such a labeling.
