“The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 19:34
Who we are?
We are Christians and lawyer, who see urgent need of legal (and others) services and help for aliens, especially asylum seekers.
The reason for founding CRS was an urgent need for organization which would be able to organize and provide charged free services for aliens. Help for Chinese Christian was a trigger. In this time we found out how desperately we need centralized and how important is to cover costs of services we are no longer able provide pro bono.
What we know now?
We found out, that if comprehensive help and coordination of help for aliens is not provided, asylum request is usually rejected, however it could end by positive decision if asylum seeker was well informed and provided by good services.
Nowadays there is no organization in Czech Republic, which provides qualified services from different branches of human needs (humanitarian, social, spiritual…).
What do we offer?
social and humanitarian help
Our goal is to found czech subject on Christian basis, which provides highly qualified and comprehensive help.
Provide legal services, found system of profesional, make educational materials, educate society, cooperate with other NGOs help refugees. We want to be preventive with wide offer of services before is too late and help to protect human rights – right of fair trial.
