Charities raise some 11 million crowns in donations for flood victims

Czech charities have reportedly collected around 11 million crowns in public donations towards helping people in Moravia and Silesia whose property was damaged or destroyed by floods last week. In addition to donations by text message or direct contributions, organisations are hoping to raise still more funds. The Czech Red Cross in conjunction with Prague City Hall, for example, will hold a special benefit concert in the Czech capital on Wednesday.
