Slovakia demonstrates leadership in the support that Ukrainians need. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine - Minister for Reintegration of the Temporary Occupied Territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk during a visit to the humanitarian center in Gabčíkovo. Here temporarily live 959 of our fellow citizens who were forced to leave for Slovakia because of the russian military aggression. 308 residents of the institution are children.
There is everything necessary for a full life: rooms with private toilets and showers, monthly residents receive food and hygiene kits, children's clubs operate for children. There are many opportunities for leisure and educational activities. In particular, Slovak language courses, consultations of employment centers, library, tailoring, drawing classes, cinema, etc.
International organizations and their executive partners help to provide specialized services: UNHCR / Slovak Humanitarian Council, IOM, UNICEF / Mareena, Mental Health League, Firemedical and others.
In total, according to the UN, there are more than 100,000 Ukrainian refugees in Slovakia.
"Slovakia has a huge burden in terms of the number of people who came here fleeing from the war. It is the largest in Europe per one citizen of this country. Therefore, I would like to thank the Slovak people who, despite the economic difficulties, understand everything and help Ukrainians," Iryna Vereshchuk summed up.
