In addition to standalone activities aimed at acute aid, we also deal with long-term aid projects. They are at the center of our attention, because they allow us to achieve a systematic and permanent change of an unfavorable situation for the better.
Of course, we wouldn't be able to do it without help, that’s why we would like to thank our partners, without whom it would not be possible.
Foreign aid in Greece
In October 2020, our partners from Brno and LEAP members went to Greece for the first time to deliver a humanitarian collection of clothing, food and hygiene items that volunteers and students from Brno helped us prepare and collect. Our goal was to mitigate the negative consequences of the refugee crisis in Greece. Further aid was delivered in June 2021 and September 2021 to the island of Chios, where we distributed hygiene supplies to refugees with our Greek, Norwegian and English partners. In September, at the beginning of the school year, we also delivered educational aids, notebooks, pens and backpacks to schoolchildren.
A school for people fleeing from Ukraine
After the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, we carried out a humanitarian collection of clothes, food and hygiene items. Material aid from Brno, Trenčín, Bratislava and Prievidza successfully reached our Ukrainian partners from the NGO STRENGTH OF UZHGOROD. After the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, the activities of the organization gradually expanded to help Ukrainian refugees, through free teaching of the Slovak language as well as through other related activities at the regional level. Integration process and assistance activities for refugees from Ukraine are currently taking place at the Junior Leisure Center in Bojnice. We help Ukrainians who have left their homes to find work, provide free legal advice, assist with orientation in the legal and social environment, help with administration and enrollment of children in schools and kindergartens. Last but not least, we also provide them with language education and teach them the basics of Slovak language. We believe that social dialogue, our engagement and friendship will help Ukrainians with better integration into society, employment and that we contribute to the development of a tolerant civil society.
