IOM also ensures that critical, life-saving items are made available to meet the needs of people most affected by the crisis.
IOM operates a largescale warehousing facility in Košice (3,500 square meters) and another one in Michalovce (5,814 square meters) to provide cross border humanitarian supplies to vulnerable Ukrainians. The prepositioning of goods and transfer across the border has proven a critical supply route from Slovakia to Ukraine, supporting continued access to critical lifesaving goods.
In response to vital needs of Ukrainian refugees and TCNs arriving in Slovakia, IOM, in partnership with local authorities and organisations provides humanitarian aid for assistance centres, hotspots, registration centres, accommodation centres and other facilities that assist people in need from Ukraine.
IOM will continue to scale its direct assistance response in line with evolving needs.
