Ship for homeless people in February

A ship with at least 250 homeless people on board will be visible soon on the Vltava river. The city will get the ship at the end of January 2007. The ship will be maintained by workes of humanitarian institutions. The annual service costs will be 8,5 million CZK.

The project is run for people from Prague only. All Prague homeless people will be provided by chip cards that will enable them to enter the ship. For one night on this ship they will have to pay the most 100 CZK.

“In case the homeless people want to cooperate and work seasonally, they can use more services on the ship,” said the councilman Jiri Janecek. Even though the ship provides 250 beds, there are about 5000 homeless people in Prague.
