The city of Brandýs nad Labem is located in the Czech Republic and has 16,000 inhabitants.
Most of the people distanced themselves from any form of faith at a time of totalitarianism when it was forbidden. The population has a good and open heart despite harsh living conditions and pervasive poverty. Indeed, the lack of jobs leads to a difficult situation where many people have to go to Prague, the capital city, to be able to feed their family. Therefore, social insecurity is very rife.
Us, Daughters of Charity, provide help to the population by giving soup or clean clothes, as well as attention to homeless people or people in need.
We also help them as much as possible in their individual needs such as administrative procedures, healthcare costs and many other aspects. A lot of people live in the streets which lead to the idea of converting containers into homes for some of them.
This first step was completed with the help of benefactors and the town. Today, 9 people are housed in this living space.
The second step was to set up mobile toilets on this area close to the small houses, firstly with the precious help provided by your donations on the Rosalie Projects platform.
Aim of the project:
Today we call on your generosity to bring electricity to the small houses of these people.
Indeed, candles are the only way for them to light their houses and they do not have neither a refrigerator nor a heating system. Therefore, that would greatly improve their everyday comfort and ease their daily life.
Together, they have created a place where there is room for everyone, taking care of one another and rediscovering what they can achieve by being at the service of all. Everyday they look after the sheep that have been left in their care, tinker around and maintain their home in good order: it is the condition given by the Daughters of Charity for them to be able to stay.
That way, they recover the joy of living by feeling useful.
Providing electricity access in each small house would allow these persons to improve their poor living conditions and would be much safer than using candles for lighting.
The men living there are already strongly involved in the project and will be in charge of part of the work such as preparing the land for the cable installation. Several volunteers from the parish offered to help them out and we will be a link and a support throughout the improvements. Finally, an engineer (on site since the drafting of the budget) will coordinate all the project to complete it in the best possible way.
From the beginning, we have really wanted to help those people regain their dignity thereby proving them they are capable of living better by doing all they can to stand on their own.
Thank you very much to all of you who will help improve those people living conditions!

Je m'appelle Veronika Margeťáková et j'appartiens à la Communauté « Bienheureuse Rosalie Rendu » à Stara Boleslav où nous sommes 8 sœurs. Notre mission principale est le service dans la Maison des seniors, mais nos services sont très variés et nous essayons de répondre aux appels autour de nous, qui sont nombreux : la pastorale des enfants et des jeunes, des familles pauvres et des personnes sans domicile fixe (S.D.F). Nous nous aidons mutuellement et participons à tous ces services. Grâce à cela, nous pouvons partager les joies et les peines de nos frères pauvres.
Quant à moi, je suis chargée de m’occuper particulièrement des S.D.F. Je suis heureuse de pouvoir contribuer à ce que quelques personnes trouvent une solution durable, tandis que pour celles hébergées provisoirement ici, nous cherchons à améliorer quelque chose dans leur vie pleine de souffrance.
