Department of Composite Materials, with the support of the management of the Polymer Institute, organizes a material collection for women and children from Ukraine who have crossed the Slovak-Ukrainian border and are in border camps.

"My world has changed, and it's still hard to believe that it's not just a historical disaster movie. Everyone I love the most in my life has stayed where my home is. In this situation, almost the whole world, European countries and Slovakia have joined together like never before, and everyone is trying to find a way to help. However, many people are still at the borders, they will be coming to Slovakia, and they will need material help. I will be grateful to you if you also join this call and help. Thank you in advance, and I wish everyone that we can live in a peaceful and secure world again,” says Anastasia Stepura, PhD student at the Polymer Institute SAS, a native of Ukraine and initiator of the collection.

List of things needed for women and children in camps at the border:

Hygiene products: they need everything for disinfection, baby diapers, wet wipes, sanitary pads, masks, respirators, solid soaps but also other drugstore products.

Food: bottled water, juices, teas, coffee, durable groceries (not the ones that need cooking), such as cans, pâtés, perhaps even sweets, crunches, sticks, baby food, juices with sugar for children.

Medical supplies: bandages, medicines for flu, fever, cough, stuffy nose, painkillers, first aid kits.

Other material: blankets, thermal blankets, sleeping bags, mats, toys for children.

You can bring these things to the conference room of the Polymer Institute SAS in the SAS premises on Dúbravská cesta on the following dates:

  • March 2 - 3 from 9:00 to 10:30
  • March 8 - 9 from 9.00 to 10.30

After that, we will take the collected materials to the facility of Bratislava Archdiocesan Charity (BACH), Krasinského 6, 821 04 Bratislava, as agreed.
