Organization for Aid to Refugees (OPU) was established in 1991 in Prague as a non-profit, non-governmental, humanitarian organization. Since 2014, OPU has been an association under the Civil Code.
OPU has been helping refugees and foreigners in the Czech Republic for 25 years.
OPU’s main activities include providing free legal and social counselling to applicants for international protection and to other foreigners in the Czech Republic, organizing training programmes for both professionals and the general public, and other activities aimed at promoting integration of foreigners.
One of the OPU’s goals is to fight against xenophobia and racial and ethnic intolerance.
