Postojna – A convoy of staff accompanied by 20 orphans from Ukraine will be housed in a village in Slavina near Postojna on their way to Slovenia. He acknowledged that the journey would be challenging and expressed his hope that his children would soon arrive in Slovenia.
With the exception of 20 children between the ages of 1 and 7, the convoy includes three doctors, several nurses and teachers, and their children, Curk told STA.
He said the trip would be a challenge “due to traffic jams and obstacles on Ukrainian territory.” Still, Kirk believes in “international law and territorial openness” and wants children to cross the EU border in “foreseeable times.”
He could not say when the convoy would arrive in Slovenia, but said the public would be notified.
The orphans come from Luhansk Orphanage No. 2 in eastern Ukraine. They will be accompanied by 18 staff from Ukraine and their children, who will stay in Slovenia until the end of the war in Ukraine.
Postojna Mayor Igor Marentič said a few days ago that everything was ready for arrival and that locals are providing daily assistance to make children as comfortable as possible in Slovenia.
Children will be housed in a folk school in Slavina, and accompanying staff will stay in a secondary school in postojna forestry and woodworking.
Children undergo a medical examination upon arrival, after which parents apply for temporary protection status. They can attend local kindergartens and schools.
