NGO Artists 4 children
is a cultural, non-profit organization established in 2006 by a film producer Renáta Králová.
We bring actors to places where theatres do not usually play and where they help
to forget suffering and pain.
WE PLAY FOR CHILDREN:
in Czech hospitals
in refugee camps in countries struck
by natural disasters or military conflicts
(on Sri Lanka, in Bosnia, Kosovo
Palestine and Gaza)
in socially outcast Roma communities
in Bohemia, in Slovakia
and in the southern Balkans.
(Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia)
Since 2008 we regularly visit southern India, the region around Madras, where we play for the children living in slums, on the streets and for the mentally and physically handicapped children.
