Many people in Slovakia today are helping people fleeing the war in Ukraine in various ways – whether as volunteers, providing accommodation or otherwise coming into contact with them. This help deserves great admiration. However, it can also be challenging. That’s why CVEK, in cooperation with the Milan Šimečka Foundation, has prepared a basic package of information for those who are helping people fleeing Ukraine in any way, so that they know what to expect from the situation and are able to cope with it together with the refugees, and also so that they can direct them when they need practical information. In this newsletter you will therefore find information on what refugees are experiencing, how it manifests itself and how to cope with it. But you will also find practical information on how to help them with things like cash withdrawals, sim card arrangements and temporary online education for their children.
