The Czech Chamber of Commerce and the Association for Integration and Migration have announced they are setting up a fund in aid of migrants. The initiative came from the Chamber of Commerce which approached Czech firms with the idea and 738 of them responded positively, promising to make a donation or provide jobs for refugees. According to the head of the chamber Vladimir Dlouhy there would be around 2,000 job openings. The fund is to be administered by the Association for Integration and Migration and the money is to be used for the education of children, Czech lessons and requalification courses.
