It is an extraordinary private initiative which will provide great help to the affected people and their relatives. The principal aim is to implement suitable living quarters for the mentally handicapped with proper medical care and support. The affected people shall be able to live a "normal" life and should be in the position to perform simple work duties without stress elements.
The fund can only achieve its goals if it receives generous contributions from private and public donors. Every donation of any size is great help.
I am very happy to support THE AROK ENDOWMENT FUND and hope that it can quickly get off to a good start.

Honestly, I have to say that Mrs. Lada has catched us off-guard by her invitation to cooperation. As a founder and a spokeswoman of movement Můj život s kočkou ("My life with a cat"), within we deal with relationship of mentally handicapped people and their cats besides other things, I have found out surprisedly that someone had overtaken us and had already started to realize this nice idea. Endowment fund AROK is entirely unique charitable activity with clear vision that psychiatric patient needs for his fully-fledged life total welfare and eventuality to have and keep a four-legged companion definitely belongs to it. We keep one's fingers crossed for the endowent fund, also the cat's!

I know what I am writing about, when the Endowment fund AROK has the mission to support mentally handicapped people. I was at beginning of formation of Foundation Nova which makes effort to do the same thing and I have seen bright eyes of hundred of handicapped people for who I have organised concert actions. That is why I appreciate that someone from private sector has effort to help in such way. And because I know Mrs. Laďka Rotšeidlová personally, I can recommend her respectability to whichever sponsor activity of support her endowment fund. With respect to her efforts:
