Slovenia Weekly: Ready to offer our help

Slovenia had shown solidarity with Ukraine and would continue to stand by its side in this difficult time, said Slovenian Foreign Minister Anže Logar, announcing 1.1 million euros in humanitarian aid from Slovenia to the people of Ukraine. Slovenia will channel this aid through the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Caritas Internationalis and the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Moreover, the Slovenian government has set up a government call centre where experts from different fields provide information on the assistance Slovenia is offering to the citizens of Ukraine. The call centre is open from 8 am to 6 pm, 7 days a week. The experts in the call centre provide information on entry to and stay in Slovenia and the granting of international protection. They will also inform callers on how individuals and organisations can provide financial and material assistance. The people of Slovenia have demonstrated their solidarity and provided humanitarian aid countless times. The first refugees from Ukraine have arrived in Slovenia; we are collecting humanitarian aid, and the response has been overwhelming.
