Yes, the financial aid program closes on January 31, 2023. No more payments will be sent after this date. In addition, program participants are encouraged to withdraw all balances held on their IFRC VISA or MoneyGram cards.


What help can Ukrainians expect in Slovakia?


Despite the closure of the Red Cross program, Slovakia continues to provide Ukrainians with payments for material needs.


You can apply for this assistance at the nearest Labor Center in Slovakia. To do this, it is necessary to contact the center with a foreigner's card with a request for temporary asylum.
