The St. Nicholas Charity Bazaar

Dagmar Havlová, Chairwoman of the Board of Trustees and founder of the VIZE 97 Foundation, initiated the idea of a charity bazaar. The purpose of the event is to bring not-for-profit organisations together, to link them through their mutual cooperation, and to enable them to present their activities and the work of affiliated organisations, such as protected workshops or short-stay social care institutions. The supporters of the St Nicholas Charity Bazaar can attend the event at Prague Crossroads every 5 December in the afternoon.

The timely diagnosis and prevention of bowel and rectal cancer

The large intestine carcinoma is the most frequent malignant illness in our country and the number of occurrences is on the increase. The Czech Republic thus occupies an unfortunate first place on a world-wide scale. Thanks to the efforts of Mrs Dagmar Havlová, the Foundation has succeeded in acquiring a total amount of 300,000,000 CZK which has enabled the equipping of a dense network of endoscopic workplaces so that it is possible to meet the high demands of the preventative programme.
