Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, the Salesian family has been helping people forced to leave their homes and the country, as well as those who have chosen to stay. We have moved from one-off activities at the beginning of the conflict to systematic and long-term assistance. Your financial support will make a fundamental contribution to improving the lives of the people of Ukraine. Thank you.
Since April 2022 we have been providing many different activities for about 300 kids and youths who are accomodated in our centre in Gabčíkovo. We would like to enrich our program with some spiritual services and trips during the weekends.
Our activities are coordinated with International Salesian organization Don Bosco Network. We continue to provide material assistance and help for FMA sisters and Salesians in Ukraine who distribute it further in needed.
In the first phase, we evacuated 50 boys to Slovakia from the Salesian House of the Pokrova family. Currently, we have established a private CDR (Center for Children and Family), in which several of them continue their stay in Slovakia.
We systematically work with volunteers to whom we offer program of an accompanied volunteering. Thanks to that they are provided with training and support during their service throughout mentor, psychological counselling, accommodation and others.
We offer for mothers and their kid’s opportunity to spend afternoons in our Salesian centres. Hernička is working with the help of Slovak mothers who make a program for children and also they provide advice and assistance to Ukrainian mothers.
Starting from May 2022, our trainers – volunteers offer free Slovak language courses for people from Ukraine at the youth center in Trnavka in Bratislava. If you're interested, you can sign up by emailing email@example.com.
We would like to thank the Slovak and foreign institutional and corporate partners who have supported our activities, allowing us to help even more. For 2022, the amount of their contribution was €681,321.
If you are a Slovak or foreign company and you can help, whether financially or with material support, please, become our partner.
Don't waste time, do good, do a lot of good and you will never regret it.
