“Our operations manager, Michaela, is from the neighboring country of Slovakia, which is currently hosting tens of thousands of refugees.

“She is in talks with her family to provide temporary accommodation for one or two refugee families in an empty chalet they have and we have offered financial support if needed.

“We welcome the generous assistance and salute the Slovak government and people providing refugees as well as other frontline neighboring countries, including Poland, Hungary, Romania and Moldova.

“We hope our government will take notice and follow suit and help by taking in our fair share of refugees, who are mostly vulnerable women and children, as soon as possible.

The campsite says it has offered, via the Red Cross, temporary accommodation for two families in two of its caravans if needed.

The spokesperson added: “In addition, we boycott the purchase of goods or services from companies controlled by Russia or Belarus.

“We will also hold a collection box at the reception for as long as necessary and will fly the Ukrainian flag on the campsite in solidarity with the Ukrainian people. »
