First group of Iraqi Christians to arrive on Sunday


The first group of Christian refugees from Iraq who have been offered a future in the Czech Republic will arrive in the country on January 24, the group which is taking care of them has announced. The refugees, comprised of six families, will be taken to a recreation centre at Jihlava where they will be given intensive lessons in Czech and Czech culture. Acceptance of the families was agreed by the Czech government in December last year. The charity Generation 21 has taken charge of their resettlement and transition to Czech life.
