„A total of 24 applications for financial aid from the four most severely affected regions were submitted to the Oskavalir program. During the application reviewing process, the main criteria considered by our 3-member selection committe with each application were the extent of need for financial assistance, possibility of obtaining financial aid from other sources and the ways that the aid will be used,” says Tomáš Pojar, the Director of People In Need non-profit organization.

The schools will use the financial aid provided by the Oskavalir program to finance the equipment of damaged classrooms, labs and gyms as well as the reconstruction of damage and necessary construction work. „The walls on the ground floor still haven’t been plastered. Classes take place only on on the upper floors. The financial aid will be used to finance new furniture and teaching aids. A part of the financial aid will go to our specialized educational centre for autistic children,” said Božena Coufalová, the head of the Specialized School in České Budějovice. „The floods submerged all of our basement. Therefore, the money will be used to finance the necessary construction work,“ says Mgr. Zdeněk Volf, the head of the Secondary Medical School in Děčín.

„We believe Oskavalir will help the schools tackle the pressing problems resulting from the floods,“ says Karla Stephens, the COO at Oskar.
