“Czech Television reports that the first families enrolled in a social housing program in the town of Ostrava have received keys to their new apartments from the town. As long as they follow the rules and send their children to school, the town will assist them.
The town hall is rolling out a program that will be financed in the future by hundreds of millions of crowns from the European Union. There are thousands of people who need help getting out of the ghetto, as the situation with housing and work in the town is unsustainable.
Czech Government Human Rights Commissioner Monika Šimůnková has criticized the program’s late start. In her view, Ostrava should have had a plan in prace to save the ghettos long ago.”
