Ukrainian orphanage children arrive in Slovenia

Postojna – Twenty children from an orphanage in Ukraine arrived safely in the village of Slavina near Postojna on Tuesday. Most children are one to three and a half years old. Sandi Curk, commander of civil protection in the Inner Carniola region, told STA that they were warmly welcomed.

“After 24 hours on the road, the Ukrainian children arrived safely in Slavina via Hungary. The arrival was very moving. People from the war zone were warmly welcomed and peaceful on arrival. I came to the place, “Kirk said.

The children were immediately provided with pancakes and fruits. They were also greeted by a Postojna kindergarten teacher who helped carry the children from the bus and helped them with their first meal.

“There were no problems during the trip. This was a well-coordinated project of the international opening of the route, so the children arrived very early,” Kirk said.

He added that the staff accompanying the children were impressed with the welcome and accommodation provided for the children.

The orphans come from Luhansk Orphanage No. 2 in eastern Ukraine. They will be accompanied by 18 staff from Ukraine and their children, including 3 doctors and 4 nurses, who will stay in Slovenia until the end of the war in Ukraine.

Children are examined medically today, after which their parents apply to give them temporary protection status. They can attend local kindergartens and schools.

The children will be housed in the former Folk School in Slavina, and the accompanying staff will stay in Postojna’s Forestry and Woodworking Secondary School. Ukrainian orphanage children arrive in Slovenia
