iRozhlas.cz | More than half of Czechs still support aid to Ukrainian refugees, poll shows
Support for Ukrainian refugees among Czech men and women has not changed in recent months. It has even risen slightly to 54 percent. This is according to a February survey by the STEM agency among 1,000 respondents. Radiožurnál was the first to have a look at the results. Fears that the willingness to support Ukrainians will decline have not been confirmed. But it is different when it comes to concrete assistance in practice.
The poet Tim Postovit is also organizing aid for refugees from war-torn Ukraine. “It is mainly help in the sense of escorting them to job centres, hospitals, interpreting or spending time with Ukrainians and especially their children when their parents are at work,” he says.
But he adds that they lack volunteers. “At first there were so many that we didn’t even know what to do with them. But as time goes on, there are fewer and fewer volunteers. And at the moment we are having trouble even finding a volunteer to provide an escort to the job centre for two weeks. The turning point came before the summer, when people started to get a bit tired of the subject,” Postovit adds.
