Temporary Shelter to Another 66 Refugees in the Programme of Humanitarian Transfer of Refugees and Other Persons of Concern Recognized by UNHCR through the Slovak Republic
- 24 September 2015
In September 2015 the Slovak Republic provided a temporary shelter on its territory to 66 Somali refugees from Eritrea. IOM transferred the refugees to Slovakia where they are temporarily accommodated in the Emergency Transit Centre (ETC) in Humenne. The families were forced to flee their home country due to ongoing conflicts and fear for their own lives. Because many of them were stranded for years in refugee camps without hope of returning home, they were provided international protection and later chosen for resettlement to a third country. After years of uncertainty such a solution enables them to start their lives again in safe conditions.
