Czech and migrant families meet in Family Next Door project


Dozens of families in the Czech Republic had lunch with the families of immigrants on Sunday as part of a nationwide project called Family Next Door, organised by a Czech NGO Slovo 21. The project, which was being held for the thirtheenth time, aims to help immigrants with integration. This year it brought together more than 400 people of different cultures and languages. Over 1200 Czech and migrant families had lunch together since the project was launched in 2004. Organizers say more than half of the people who have taken part in the past are still in touch.
