Czech-German Fund to donate CZK 11 mln to Czechs and Germans hit by COVID crisis

World

The Czech-German Fund for the Future will donate CZK 11 million (EUR 417.900) to citizens of both countries, who were affected by the COVID-19 crisis, according to a press release issued on Tuesday.

The money will be used to support organizations providing medical and social services, as well as, Czech-German partnership projects. The fund has already earmarked CZK 6 million for organizations and individuals, who contributed to the improvement of Czech-German relations over the past three years, such as artists, cultural institutions and civic associations.

The Czech-German Fund for the Future was established in 1997 on the basis of a joint Czech-German declaration; the German side admitted its responsibility for the crimes of the Nazi regime while the Czech Republic expressed regrets for the post-war expulsion of Czechoslovakia's German-speaking community.
