The main goal of the project Social inclusion of Roma Survivors through Provision of Additional Social Services and Material Assistance is to provide elderly Roma – seniors, born before the end of World War II (before 8 May 1945) supplementary social assistance and health assistance beyond health care guaranteed by the state. It also aims to create space for joint activities for seniors with children and young people from thirteen municipalities in eastern Slovakia in which the project is implemented, in cooperation with local schools and community centres or other institutions providing social or educational services on occasion of selected festive and memorial days.

In 2018 we provided health assistance and material help through local field workers. The material help was in the form of a hygienic package (washing powder, soaps, shampoo, pain ointment), sets: quilt & pillow etc. We have reimbursed two clients for andfor some we bought medical shoes and warm vests.

In 2019 we provided health assistance and material help to 148 clients. The material help was in the form of: warming set (blanket and pillow), a sanitary package (washing powders, soaps, shampoos), towels, bath towels and tea towels.
