Charita Sv. Alexandra


Charity of St. Alexander in Ostrava started to work in May 1999. It deals in numerous humanitarian activities. The majority of workshops that it runs are protected under the labor act and its accompanying provisions. People with disabilities are the major group of the workforce in these protected workshops. The remaining part of its workforce is recruited predominantly from among the people with long-term unemployment records or from among unemployed youth (Charita sv. Alexandra 2011). City of Ostrava and Job Center Ostrava were the two major stakeholders that provided funding for Charity of St. Alexander between the years of 2006 and 2010. In addition, within the years of 2006 and 2007, also the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of the Czech Republic and the administration of Moravian-Silesian Region provided funding.
