Dear partners, dear friends, dear colleagues – conservationists from different parts of the world!
In this terrible and tragic situation we have joined efforts and provide help to Ukrainian refugees. Thousands of unfortunate, frightened people are coming to Zakarpatie in the West Ukraine and to the High Tatras and to the Slovak Paradise National Park.
In the Tatra region of Slovakia, we created a coordination council of representatives of non-profit organizations and the Slovak Paradise National Park- the first park in Slovakia which responded to this tragic situation and offered help. We cannot wait for aid from the state or European Union, we need to help these people immediately.
Our adhoc partnership consists of NGOs Association for Nature conservation “Machaon International”, Tourism Association of High Tatras region (ZCR Vysoké Tatry), Tatra Parliament (Tatranský parlament, o.z.), Volunteer fire prevention service (DHZ Tatranská Lomnica), Life Academy, Target school and Slovak Paradise National Park Authority (Národný park Slovenský Raj) for providing food, medical supplies, transport or adaptation activities for refugees (i.e. courses of Slovak language, assistance with employment).
We want to help both the hundreds refugees coming to our region and also to our colleagues from Synevyr National Park (provide lodging and food for more than 200 people) and NGO Happy Kids (Uzgorod, in normal life they do environmental education and creative activities for children, now providing lodging and food for more than 150 people and assist them with transfer to Slovakia).
We would be very grateful for your donations to the special account we created to keep our efforts going.

If you wish to bring any humanitarian aid such as food (especially for children – fruit puree, milk porridge) that can be stored, diapers, hygiene items (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc.) you bring it to the warehouse in Poprad (unfortunately, very difficult to transfer humanitarian aid through Ukrainian border, so this aid we will be provided to refugees lodged in our region).
We will provide regular financial reports and inform all supporters how we help refugees.
Thank you very much in advance for your kind support!
