As a result of the initiative of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Slávka Janigová, the Department of British and American Studies FF UPJŠ has begun cooperation with the Košice Self-Governing Region (KSGR) to provide help to Ukrainian war refugees. Students of the BAS Department whose mother tongue is Ukrainian participate in community interpreting at the hotspots of the KSGR in Košice. They help Ukrainian refugees with administrative problems and practical issues the refugees face when crossing the borders in order to make their arrival in Slovakia easier.
Our great thanks go to the initiator of the activity and all students who take part in it.
