First Lady meets with head of Children in Need fund

Ivana Zemanová, the wife of President Miloš Zeman, will focus on charity work as First Lady, her personal secretary Jana Bartošová has said. On Wednesday, Mrs Zemanová met with the head of the Fund for Children in Need, Marie Vodičková. The two discussed possible projects to help children from socially-weaker backgrounds, including a charity the First Lady is aiming to set up. The Fund for Children in Need focuses on children who suffered abuse, were abandoned by their families or are otherwise threatened. Its aim is to provide them with alternative care when they cannot remain with their natural parents.
