12.6.2019 | Aktivity ministerstva | Aktivity ministra

The Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic Miroslav Lajčák, as well as the employees of the Slovak Foreign and European Affairs Ministry supported the 19th year of the public fundraising campaign Belasý motýľ (Blue-sky Butterfly) on 12 June 2019. The awareness campaign taking place throughout Slovakia on neuromuscular diseases is organized by the Organization of Muscular Dystrophy in the Slovak Republic. This is the only specialized organization for children and adults with muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular diseases with a national scope in Slovakia. It provides its members with professional as well as human support, and it is also active in social affairs, in addition to being a patient organization. The funds collected by volunteers at the Ministry will be used exclusively for the purchase of equipment for people affected by muscular dystrophy: breathing devices, reclinable beds, electric wheelchairs and other special equipment.
