Hygiene supplies for babies and children, washing powder or diapers – these simple things of everyday use can make basic living conditions of war-affected Ukrainian families much better.
In December 2022, IOM delivered more than 6,800 personal hygienic supplies – toilet papers, sanitary napkins, toothpastes, shampoos and other hygiene items – to the Distribution Centrum of Help of Spisska katolicka charita for around 1,400 people from Ukraine who found a refuge nearby Poprad and Kezmarok. They can come and pick up this humanitarian aid personally.
IOM also delivered there a new refrigerator which is vital to keep safe the chain of food supplies from donors to beneficiaries. The old one broke some time ago and milk products from different local donors did not have a place to be stored in. Now, beneficiaries have again a working refrigerator for milk, cheese and yoghourts.

Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, IOM has been delivering humanitarian aid to various towns in Slovakia to help people from Ukraine who found a temporary refuge there.
