Eversheds Sutherland has provided pro bono legal advice to Nadacni Fond Dum Ronalda McDonalda on contractual documentation related to the start of construction of the first Ronald McDonald House in the Czech Republic.

According to Eversheds Sutherland, "after almost 20 years of preparations, negotiations, and savings, the construction of the first Ronald McDonald House in the Czech Republic was started on the premises of the University Hospital in Motol. The house will serve as a temporary home for families of children hospitalized for a long time in the hospital and will provide complete facilities from rooms for accommodation, meals, employment or entertainment facilities for the youngest members of the family. There are currently almost 400 such houses in the world."

"Financing of the construction of the house," Eversheds Sutherland reports, "will be provided by the Ronald McDonald House Endowment Fund, which has long been dedicated to supporting families in the Czech Republic, which have to cope with the complications associated with long-term hospitalization of its youngest members. In the Czech Republic, the endowment fund also provides financial support to the families concerned at the level of regional hospitals."

The Eversheds Sutherland team was led by Partner Dominika Vesela.
